Sixers, Timberwolves Eyeing Josh Howard

A week after meeting with the Spurs, Josh Howard is set to visit the 76ers today and tomorrow, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter). Spears adds that Howard is also drawing interest from the Timberwolves.

Howard, 32, has been the subject of ongoing rumors this offseason. He was reportedly close to making a decision on a team in late July, but nearly two months later, he's being linked to an entirely new set of clubs — the Pacers, Warriors, Nets, and Knicks were among the teams said to be in on him earlier in the summer.

We heard last week that Howard would still like to return to the Jazz, with whom he spent the 2011/12 season. However, the team's unresolved buyout situation with Raja Bell means there probably isn't room for a guaranteed contract for Howard at this point.

The Sixers have only 13 players under contract, so there'd be room on the roster for Howard. Philadelphia also has its room exception available, though I'd be surprised if the team offered the full $2.575MM to Howard, who is coming off a down year. As for the Timberwolves, they have an open roster spot, but could only offer a minimum-salary contract.
