Just one month ago when asked if he would like to play for the Chicago Bulls Dwight Howard refused to say one way or another, it’s amazing what 30 days will do to a man. Howard this week has said he wouldn’t mind a Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard pairing.
The Orlando Magic player told the Chicago Tribune:
“If I could play with Derrick right now and God wanted that to happen, it will happen. It has nothing to do with me not wanting to play with Derrick Rose. I love him. That’s my brother.”
Rumors circulated earlier in the month that sponsor Adidas who reps both Howard and Rose wouldn’t want two of their stars playing in the same market, to that Howard told the Tribune:
“It has nothing to do with adidas. In fact, adidas would love that because me and Derrick have the same guy.”
Speaking about the possibility that he could be playing with Howard Rose said on Monday:
“Me and Dwight definitely have a relationship, especially because of adidas. Our market and the city speaks for itself if someone was interested to come to the Chicago Bulls. Dwight, he’s a great player. Who wouldn’t want to play with him? But you never know what’s going to happen.”
Howard would bring his 20.2 points per game average to the Bulls with a complimenting 15.5 rebounds per game.
At this time there is no indication from the Chicago Bulls front office that they are persuing Dwight Howard.
