ESPN's Chris Broussard says that New York is a place that Howard would sign long-term, but he's the only one that seems to offer that sentiment.
Most feel that New York is still not a place Howard would consider even though Broussard says the Knicks could offer up a package that no other team could match, including Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler.
Peter Vecsey of the New York Post seems to feel the Knicks are the dark horse team to land Howard.
Vecsey quoted an unnamed Eastern Conference general manager who says..
"I’m positive the Knicks have called just in case Dwight changes up. I’m sure they’ve offered a combination of everybody, excluding Jeremy Lin, of course. [Magic GM] Otis [Smith] deserves a lot of credit for not putting it out on the street which teams have offered what."
While there are a few that think the Knicks could be players for Howard, it's a very steep price to pay for a guy who isn't sure if he wants to be in New York or not.
