Dwight Howard leaves the Lakers and signs with another NBA contender

Center Dwight Howard, 34, has signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to The Athletic insider Shams Charania. The amount of the contract will be a veteran minimum of $ 2.6 million.

Howard helped the Lakers became NBA champions last season. The centre averaged 7.5 points and 7.3 rebounds in 18.9 minutes on the court. Note, Howard initially wrote that he was returning to the Lakers, but later deleted the message on his Twitter.

“I would like to stay in Los Angeles and play for the Lakers again. I hope they give me a contract; this will be the best. I don’t want to play anymore for free. This year has passed in style: “Okay, I’ll do what I have to.” But I think I deserve this contract, “ Howard is quoted by the Greek newspaper Gazzetta.
