Dwight Howard Signs With Taiwanese Team

Longtime NBA center Dwight Howard has signed a contract with a Taiwanese team, the Taoyuan Leopards, he announced in an Instagram video.

Howard played 60 games with the Lakers last season, including 27 starts. He became a free agent after the season and remained unsigned before the overseas opportunity came along.

Howard, 37, has appeared in 1,242 regular season games during his career with averages of 15.7 points and 11.8 rebounds. He also has 125 postseason games on his resume.

He’s an eight-time All-NBA member and three-time Defensive Player of the Year but with traditional centers becoming nearly obsolete in today’s game, Howard has bounced around the league in recent seasons.

His latest stint with the Lakers was the third of his career. He also played for Houston, Atlanta, Charlotte, Washington and Philadelphia since the 2015/16 season.
