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

I really hope he doesn't like skittles.

Seriously though, he better not be taking any of Shveddy's minutes. I can see Adelman wanting a proper backup 3 for Kirilenko with Budinger out and WIlliams playing his way out of the rotation.

Not sure about that, especially for the lockerroom. But.......no more minutes for Conroy is a good thing + Howard can score some points. Still don't have a good feeling about that - I hope I'm wrong.

If Chase is healthy by the deadline, and Howard proves he can play a little yet, could be another trade chip.

I'm fine with the move. We needed another player and a veteran like Howard isn't the worst thing. Low expectations as this is just trying to get by a few more weeks with our head above water.

Also we have passified the ghost of Foye this offseason and Ebi with this move.

With this move today, they must be confident Barea will be back tomorrow night, right?

I would have preferred Pietrus, but obviously he wanted more than the vet min. I'm fine with the signing while we've got all these injuries.

I like Josh Howard. As Karch eluded...Josh was the guy we were all mad we didn't get when Ebi went. He was one of the major "shoulda coulda woulda" players always pined about during the last few KG and first few Big Al years.

He's not afraid to speak his mind, and has done some dumb stuff in the past....but it wasn't anything major (it was basically stoner rhetoric). I find it comforting someone was willing to talk and be honest about their recreational activities, as I can't imagine that it's not a norm in the NBA.

I like the signing as I think he's basically a warm body to take Bud's minutes. When Bud comes back, maybe we just let Howard go if he's causing any problems. Howard won't play the 2, but Bud did, so this boils down to AK47 getting a breather and Shved getting more minutes. I like what the signing does for our squad.

Can't get any worse then will Conroy. I can see Adelman making him a decent player again

No, Will Conroy is terrible. Josh Howard is merely bad.

Dissapointed. Howard looked done last season. And if they wanted a 3, not a 2 guard, why not give old pal Gomes a chance?
