Chris Paul and Dwight Howard have been talking recently about becoming teammates next season, according to ESPN’s Chris Broussard.
Because Broussard is reporting this, that means that it almost certainly won’t happen, but that’s beside the point.
Any team that could put the best point guard and arguably the best center in the league on the court at the same time has a chance to contend for an NBA Championship, and that’s exactly what would happen if Paul and Howard team up somewhere next year.
While it seems unlikely this will actually happen, let’s look at the potential teams that could pull this off, and how they’d stack up against the other teams in the NBA.
Atlanta is the only team with enough salary cap space to sign both Paul and Howard to max contracts. Howard is from Atlanta, and even though playing in front of his hometown fans isn’t a top priority to him, he has said he’d sign there if Paul will too.
With the addition of Paul and Howard, the Hawks starting ...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
So far Dwight Howard has been linked to the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, and Dallas Mavericks.
But now the prized free agent is reportedly interested in joining the Spurs, Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld.com reports on Thursday.
Is this just a case of wanting to play for the best team, or does Howard actually see himself playing at the AT&T Center in San Antonio?
This isn’t a breaking news story, we reported a couple of weeks ago about a rumor that Dwight and CP3 might be looking to play together.
You don’t have to be an insider to know this is a possibility, a remote possibility, but one that is out there. Chris Broussard’s sources are telling him discussions have been taking place between Howard and CP3.
Sources: CP3 & D12 hope...
When free agency begins on July 1, the most coveted free agents on the market, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul, reportedly want to play together and hope to land on the same team next season.
According to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com:
Chris Paul and Dwight Howard have been in consistent contact recently about the possibility of becoming teammates next season, according to league sources...
The NBA season isn't even officially over and one of the main topics thus far has been this: where will Dwight Howard land in the offseason? The Lakers, Rockets, Mavericks, and even the Spurs are supposedly the places the star center is considering.
Howard probably doesn't even know where he will land, but former Laker star Magic Johnson has his own option where he should...
Dwight Howard and Chris Paul have been in contact with each other in an effort to play for the same team next season, according to sources.
The Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers do not have the available cap space to allow Howard and Paul to team up, which would necessitate an unlikely trade scenario.
The Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks all have cap...
I always felt the chances of Dwight Howard and Chris Paul wanting to play together were extremely low, but if you trust Chris Broussard and his sources I have apparently been wrong. Sources: CP3 & D12 hope to team up next season. Have been texting back & forth to figure it out. Story up soon [...]
Tweet First, let me make a disclaimer: take this latest NBA free agency rumor as just that, a rumor. According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard and his now infamous “sources”, free agents Chris Paul and Dwight Howard have been texting each other about the possibility of them playing together: Paul and Howard will be the biggest [...]

Now before you say it, I know what you're thinking..it's Broussard. But the guy seems to be on top of the Doc story, and at the very least...
YOU DON'T SAY
Given his affiliation with the Lakers, it may come as a surprise to some that Magic Johnson implied that perhaps the Rockets are the best fit for Dwight Howard.
This is actually happening. Perceived as a "soft" big man, Dwight Howard will be voicing the character "Cold Turkey" in a movie about time-traveling turkeys.
That by the way is the funniest picture I could find of these two, even though it’s 8 years old. But sources are saying Dwight Howard and Chris Paul have been talking about playing together, now that the two are free agents again. The team being thrown out there is Atlanta, even though Dwight doesn’t want to play in his hometown and CP wants to stay in LA. So as of right now...
It’s not often that I get the opportunity to call Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard, a talking turkey, but he will be lending his voice to a talking turkey in an upcoming animated motion picture.
The movie is called “Free Birds” which will be produced by Relativity/Reel FX and D-12 will voice a time traveling bird:
Howard plays Cold Turkey, one of the Wild Turkeys that...
Hollywood and athletes isn’t a new a mix up but it has seen a recent uptick with more and more jocks taking an interest in Hollywood. Relativity Sports is a division of Relativity Media, a film studio that also produces TV and develops scripts plus distribution. They recently put out a video that features clients such as Dwight Howard, Niners Michael Crabtree, Cowboys Dez Bryant...
Currently in NBA news, the LA Clippers and Boston Celtics are having discussions about the Clippers acquiring the services of Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce. The Clippers are attempting to be an instant title contender right now, on paper, for 2014. But is blowing up a young, promising team the right answer for this team and what would it cost them? And how can the Utah...
