Steph Curry Worked Out With Dwight Howard During Warriors’ Pitch

The Golden State Warriors made their presentation to free agent center Dwight Howard on Monday, and then put their words into action by having Steph Curry shoot around with the big fella giving him an idea of what it’d be like for the two to play together next season. Per the Mercury News: “Co-owner Joe Lacob, general manager Bob Myers and coach Mark Jackson were all in Los Angeles making their pitch to Howard, a free agent. Then, Warriors point guard Stephen Curry, who has been in Howard’s ear, worked out with the stud center on the UCLA campus. No, Golden State doesn’t seem at all deterred by Howard’s propensity for drama, his recent injuries, or his wanting to play for other teams. ‘Are you kidding?’ one source said. ‘He’s the best center in the game.’ Golden State is considered an underdog in the Howard sweepstakes. [...] The only way Golden State can acquire Howard is via a sign-and-trade with the Lakers, likely involving Andrew Bogut. New CBA rules limit the Warriors to four years, $88 million even in a sign-and-trade.”

    Howard in GS with those two shooters would do wonders for his game (see ORL). The fact that Curry is significantly better than any PG Howard has played with and Thompson continues to blossom into a potential all-star at the 2 spot makes it even more tantalizing.

    And I would dred that…. I don’t want LA to come out of this coma dwight is about to leave them in.
    Kobe is old and round the corner from leaving for retirement,,, it would fall apart and I will be cheesing from ear to ear.
    J/k a bit
    But it would be mute to get Howard and give up Klay or Harrison,,, futile and help LA in the meanwhile as far as rebuilding.
