The NBA drama is finally over and teams are already polishing their players and line up to get a fresh start in the next 2016-2017 season. New NBA trade rumors are popping up and one notable player on the list of possibly being traded to another team is Houston Rockets Center Dwight Howard.
NBA trade rumors of Dwight Howard point to Charlotte Hornets?
Rumors have indicated that Dwight Howard is interested in taking his talents to Charlotte. According to Yibada, the Charlotte Hornets was interested in obtaining the big man as early as February but they weren?t able to come up with the deal with the Houston Rockets.
Howard possibly going to the Hornets is not as surprising as it may seem since his former teammate Jeremy Lin could have also urged him to join. Lin and Howard have had a good chemistry during their stint as Rockets players so it might give the Hornets a big boost if Howard does really decide to play for them.
Portland Trail Blazers?
On the other hand, another team interested in the all-star big man is the Portland Trail Blazers. SBNation shared that the Trail Blazers wants to add a veteran rim-protector for their team to spread the floor together with Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum. The Trail Blazers recently had its supposed collapse after three of its starting players moved to other teams. All-star guard Damian Lillard was given a leadership role on Portland and give his new team a fresh start.
And although the team is still building, the addition of veteran Dwight Howard will be a big help in terms of teaching young players on what it takes to be a great NBA player.
