Dwight Howard quits the NBA and signs for Taiwan

At almost 37 years old (he will be in a month), Dwight Howard has decided not to wait for a call from the foot of an NBA team. The pivot with 1,367 appearances in the North American league has signed with the Taoyuan Leopards, who play in the modest Taiwanese Championship (six teams).

Embarked on the Lakers galley last season, his third stint in the Californian franchise with which he won his only title (in 2020), Howard was far from the dominant player he was, particularly at the end of the 2000s with the Orlando Magic. Eight times All-Star and triple best defender of the season, he will be a candidate for the Hall of Fame at the end of his career.

“Superman” treated his arrival by declaring to come “arms wide open, with lots of hugs and smiles to give. » In Taoyuan, his adaptation should be favored by the presence of several compatriots such as the new assistant coach Akeem Williams. The latter is well known in France since he has lived his entire career there between Betclic Elite, Pro B and N1.
