Another possibility [for Cleveland] is 35-year-old Juwan Howard, who played very little (7.1 minutes per game) for Dallas last season. In 2006-2007, he was a productive player, averaging 9.7 points and 5.9 rebounds in 27 minutes per game for Houston. The Cavs have the second highest payroll in the NBA and prefer to sign this extra big man to a veteran minimum contract (about $1 million), and Howard may want more.The Plain-Dealer. So what do we talk about here? A) The awkwardness/lack of awkwardness of seeing a former Bullet/Wizard playing for the team that's bounced the Wiz from the playoffs 3 straight years. B) When the Heat will come in and offer a deal that doesn't work under the salary cap. C) Juwan Howard thinks he can get more than the veteran's minimum???
