The Dallas Mavericks are on a short list of teams Dwight Howard might take his services to.
Dirk Nowitzki would love to have Howard join, so he could relieve some of the pressure he faces on a nightly basis. Nowitzki admitted to The Star Telegram that “he’s already reached out to Howard” to start recruiting him to Dallas.
“I reached out to him and told him we’d love to have him,” Nowitzki said. “It’s not like we call each other every day. I didn’t write him a letter. We just had a little phone contact. That’s about it….
“To me, when he’s healthy he’s the most dominant big man in the league,” Nowitzki said of Howard. “He’s shown that at the end of the season when he was right what he can still do.
“He can dominate on both ends of the floor if he feels healthy, he can still use his athleticism. He’s a beast on both ends of the floor.”
