The league’s elite center has the basketball world in waiting as he decides whether he will re-sign with the Los Angeles Lakers or opt for less guaranteed money by going to the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks or Golden State Warriors.
As he mulls over the decision, Bleacher Report turned to Leigh Steinberg to provide an insider perspective on how the decision-making process is handled by elite athletes during free agency.
Steinberg is one of the biggest names in the world of sports agents, and he has sat through countless decision-making processes with free agents.
Steinberg has represented athletes in the NBA, NFL and MLB, and his list of former clients includes Steve Young, Oscar De La Hoya, John Starks, Troy Aikman, Ben Roethlisberger and many other big names through 30 years. He remains a certified NBA agent and his re-launch of Steinberg Sports and Entertainment is expected in just months.
Through the words of Steinberg, the decision-making process of Howard is broken down step by step.
