The 76ers announced today that they have signed eight-time all-star and NBA Champion Dwight Howard in a press release today. Howard left the reigning NBA champions, LA Lakers, to join Joel Embiid and Company in Philadelphia.
Howard brings an impressive resume to the 76ers bench. The former number 1 pick has been on eight ALL NBA teams, won DPOY three times, and has been named to five all-defensive teams. The addition of Dwight brings in a veteran defensive presence to back up Joel Embiid.
Because of team policy terms of the deal can’t be disclosed, but the release did say Howard will wear number 39 for the Sixers.
