Dwight Howard: ‘Huge Possibility’ He’ll Play in China

by July 18, 2011

Dwight Howard continues to stress the possibility of him signing with a team in China (or another country) during the NBA lockout. The Orlando Magic center says the chances of him going are pretty large. From the Sentinel (via the AP): “I’m not at liberty to talk about it, but there’s a huge possibility about me going to China or me going overseas to play basketball,’ Howard told The Associated Press in an interview Sunday in Fairburn, Ga., where Howard was hosting a charity basketball game. During the interview, Howard stopped short of saying he was in contract talks with a foreign team. ‘The big thing for me is not giving too much information away, but at the same time I still need to let people know what’s going on with me,’ Howard said, according to The Associated Press. ‘I don’t want to just sit over here and forget about basketball and waste, you know, opportunities for me to get better.’ Howard also said: ‘If I decide to go overseas, the main thing is for me to continue to get better, not to do the things that I normally do, but do better at the things I’m not good at. So I can use that talent to go overseas, working on my skills and staying in great shape.'”
