Rumor is Juwan Howard to Sign
(Boulder-CO) In yet another perplexing move, rumor has it the Nuggets are going to sign Juwan Howard to a non-guaranteed contract and he will practice today. Howard played with the Nuggets in 115 games from 2001-03 with an average of 18.3 points and 7.8 rebounds over that duration, but since then has seen his averages drop dramatically. Last season in 50 appearances with the Mavericks, Juwan averaged seven minutes of playing time with a meager stat line of 1.1 points and 1.6 rebounds per game.
Howard is a 14-year veteran of the league, another 6'9" foward, and yet another perplexing addition/invitation to Nuggets' training camp. The question isn't can he play, because I'm sure he can but rather will he play?
Because the way I see it...
There's a handful of players his size with more youthful legs already on this team!
