Free agent swingman Josh Howard has reportedly been working out with the Charlotte Bobcats this week. This doesn’t come as much surprise as the veteran is a Winston Salem native, which could help boost attendance of the worst team in the NBA. What is a surprise is that playoff contenders like the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks are also interested in his services.

Now don’t get me wrong Josh Howard is, wait I mean was, one hell of a player in his prime. Yes, I know he’s only 32 but thanks to injuries he’s way past his prime. From 2006 to 2009, Howard was a force for the Dallas Mavericks a rebounding and scoring machine but then injuries took their toll. Now it’s a struggle to even keep him on the court.
For the Bobcats a deal would totally make sense. They’d be taking a flier on a player most teams are over looking...
