The two sides will work together on a buyout for Howard in order to allow the 32-year-old to enter free agency this summer. Former Shaqtin' A Fool MVP JaVale McGee is one of those players who experienced a major change when he headed to Bay Area.

In 81 games last season, Howard averaged 16.6 points, 12.5 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks on 55.5 percent shooting from the field. I'm in a position where I can still dominate on the post, but I can do more things now because I understand the game on a different level. "I still can jump, I still can play, I still can contribute and I can contribute in any system".

True. but still, four teams in four years and not knowing where he's headed now?
There's no doubt that the three-time Defensive Player of the Year would become one of the best free agent bigs and he could potentially land with a contending team if he's willing to take a discounted contract.
