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 space, though acquiring both players would likely acquire both Howard and Paul to accept less than a full max contract. The Hawks would seemingly have the easiest path to sign both Howard and Paul under that scenario.
Both Howard and Paul will be free agents for the first time in their careers this offseason.
