“@JerryZgoda: On Howard from someone who knows: Great fit, good in locker room, quiet, high BB IQ, a scorer, can be a ball stopper but not a black hole”


And he's BLACK, Jerry! (sorry, had to)

For that he would need to shoot at least 35% on his 3pts. Doubt it will happen. He shot very poorly last year with Utah. He is nowhere defender he used to be due to his bad knees. Last year I was watching him play with Utah, his mindset was always to take jumpers or attack the basket, and he did it at horrible FG%. Not sure Wolves need that.


Although I agree he was awful last year with Utah, i think this is another situation. Now he is a free agent and is brought to a new team that is only interested in him because of the injuries - So Im sure his role will be very specific at what the coaching staff is seeking from him. I doubt Adelman give him the green light to do what he did in Utah

Both Pietrus and Howard are pretty terrible. I'd take Howard over Pietrus though, just because he's the better offensive player. Pietrus had an 8.58 PER last year fwiw.

Can't argue it, we need bodies, and he can contribute still. I'm sure Adelman will figure out a way to fit him in.

Good call. Pietrus is still a guy that needs to be set up. Howard can create.

Howard>Conroy is all we need to know :D

Yesterdays game was the best example that we need someone that can contribute, Conroy wasnt that guy.

I'm pretty meh on this. Not a big Howard fan but they do need another warm body so, as long as he doesn't mess up the chemistry on the team, I'm OK with it.

Good article from last Saturday: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wiz ... ck-in-nba/


“I’m just a surprise waiting to happen for anybody that picks me up,” Howard, a former Wizard, said in a recent telephone interview. “Of course, I am at the end of my career, as far as what they consider older guys, but I’ve got a lot left in the tank.”

“I’m not mad about not being in the NBA right now because when I look back on my career, not too many guys that are in there right now can say they’ve done the things I’ve done,” he said. “I’m happy, but I want to get out there and keep playing because I have a lot to give.”

I doubt it's a big deal. People made too much about the friendship to begin with. Roy's a vet, he knows this is a business.

I'm very happy with this move. We aren't asking Josh to do much, just hit the open jumper and play some defense. Adelman will get the most out of him

Only if he has season ending surgery or is forced to retire, I'd think. Otherwise, they're either keeping him or trading his guaranteed contract.

Considering Roy hasn't done anything so far he wouldn't be too big of a loss.

Well, I'm all for bringing in anyone who can help us while we deal with this crazy injury situation we have. But I need you guys to help settle a debate that I'm having with a co-worker.

Is Josh Howard the guy who stirred up a bunch of trouble one summer when he refused to recognize the National Athem or started cussing while it was being played or something like that while he was at a bsaeball game or some kind of function?

Wasn't there a you tube video of him going off about the country and how he doesn't give a crap etc...

Or was it someone else? I don't know why I keep thinking it was Josh Howard when he played for the Mavericks.

Thanks and let's hope Howard can help us!!!

Thanks guys! I appreciate the info! I hate that I was correct about that but hopefully Howard has changed. I don't recall hearing anything else bad about him since then.

Hopefully he can help us!!!

Thanks again for the fast info fellas. :D
