Dwight Howard

Stats: 6.2 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 61.2 fg%

The days of Dwight Howard rooting himself in the middle of the lane, putting up his gigantic paw, and demanding the ball before slamming it over the top of his defenders are long gone.

Howard, to his credit, has swallowed his pride and accepted where he is at this point in his career. Although nothing is official, it appears incredibly unlikely that the Los Angeles Lakers bring Howard back for another run. But that doesn’t mean the team right down the hall won’t be interested.

Offensively, Howard doesn’t give you much. His post moves are nonexistent and his athleticism has waned considerably. Still, Howard is a powerful body that’s more than capable of holding his own in the paint.

In just 16.2 minutes a game, Howard averaged only 3.7 shot attempts a night but he did shoot 61.2% from the field while grabbing 5.9 boards. Howard isn’t capable of playing for long stretches but in short spurts, he can give the Clippers exactly what they need.
