Josh Howard has interest from Knicks, Nets and Bobcats

NBA

Utah Jazz unrestricted free agent forward Josh Howard is reportedly working out with the Charlotte Bobcats and also has the eye of the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, according to a tweet from Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

Earlier in August, Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld.com named the Golden State Warriors and Indiana Pacers as two other teams interested in the swingman:

Howard may ultimately return to Utah, but he’s also receiving interest from the Indiana Pacers, Golden State Warriors, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets among other teams.

Howard insists he’s 100-percent healthy after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery last season. He played in 43 games for the Utah Jazz, averaging 8.7 points and 3.7 rebounds in 23 minutes per game.

Though hardly the player he once was from his days of averaging nearly 20 points per game as a member of the Dallas Mavericks, Howard can still provide depth on both ends of the floor and for multiple positions.

He signed a one-year contract with the Jazz in December 2011 worth approximately $2.2 million and is expected to sign with a team for near the veterans minimum next season.
