Dwight Howard Rumors: Teaming with Deron Williams Would Put Brooklyn on Top
The Brooklyn Nets now have Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and a big question mark with Dwight Howard’s name written all over it. Should Howard and Williams be united, the Nets could be seeing a big payoff and a chance to be a top team in the NBA.
Deron Williams pulled a fast one on the trade market and recommitted with the Brooklyn Nets in hopes to rebuild the team. But Williams knows that the only way the Nets can pull that off is to acquire Dwight Howard.
Williams and Howard are longtime friends and former U.S. Olympic teammates. So Williams is very aware of Howard’s style of play, as well as their abilities to play well together.
According to the Associated Press (via the Boston Herald), Williams recently signed a “five-year, $98 million extension, rather than join the Dallas Mavericks” and he’s looking for Howard to set his sights on Brooklyn. The duo could bring some added excitement to the team’s move to Brooklyn in the upcoming season.
As a player, Williams considers Howard one of the best in the NBA. And he is.
Howard is a strong center on the Orlando Magic and has played for the team for the entirety of his career so far. He averages about 20 points per game and is an aggressive rebounder.
Should Brooklyn acquire Howard in the trade, Williams believes that the Nets will have a chance at being a top team.
“I think we’ll be good, I think we’ll be one of the top teams in the East for sure, top teams in the NBA."
Looking to revitalize the Nets and their fanbase, the team’s move to Brooklyn was step one. The second step is putting some spark in the roster and Williams is hoping the Nets will have their own “Big Three.”
According to Marc Berman of the New York Post, Williams believes that the formation of a Big Three with Joe Johnson and Dwight Howard would be the only way they could actively compete with powerhouse teams like the Miami Heat.
Teaming Howard up with Williams would be a great decision for the Brooklyn Nets. Let’s hope they can seal the deal and give the Nets a chance at the top.
