According to the latest round of NBA Trade rumors, Dwight Howard was hardly pleased with a veteran and revered NBA writer who has been insistent that the player is quite unhappy to be playing in the Houston Rockets team.
It all started on December 15 when there was a report published by sheridanhoops.com. The issue continued even on Tuesday. Howard decided to speak on the matter after his practicing session.
According to NJ, the player quoted in a post published by ESPN.com that one has to hear something from the ‘horse’s mouth’, to judge whether there is an element of truth or not.
The previous report stated that Howard was unhappy as the offense of the Rockets is revolving around James Harden, the star guard of the team.
Initially, Howard was quick to point out that the report was full of rumors and lies. When the magazine responded, claiming that that the report was correct, he sounded quite credible during an interview over the radio.
NBA Trade Rumors are doing rounds that Howard might have the freedom to come out of his 4-year contract amounting to a whopping 87.6 million USD contract in the final season and so is a likely candidate who could be shifted before the trade deadline of February 18 of the NBA.
Predictions are being made by Sheridan that the player might be traded and perhaps the best fit for Howard will be the Miami Heat.
Though the Rockets initially had a dismissal performance as they could not win ten out of fifteen games, but they managed to win 3 games in a row to improve their position.
Howard, 30 made an admission in his interview with ESPN report that the players of the Rocket had been upset when they were struggling during the early season.
Dwight Howard is currently in his 3rd season in the Rockets Team and has been adjudged as an 8-time All-Star.
