NBA Free Agency: Josh Howard To Sign One-Year Contract With Utah Jazz

More from media day in a bit - kind of a crazy day in general. But first, in a piece of news that is not especially surprising, Josh Howard will not be with the Wizards next season, as he has signed with the Utah Jazz, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard. Michael Lee has confirmed the report, and Jazz GM Kevin O'Connor said in a radio interview that Howard will be on a one-year deal.

Howard's departure from Washington isn't a surprise. The Wizards liked him and believed he really did turn around his reputation, but they're also in a youth movement and just drafted two guys who play his position. Howard played in just 18 games recovering from knee surgery, which meant he couldn't demonstrate the on-court leadership the Wizards really hoped he could.

Fare thee well, Josh. Even if the Wizards are not currently your employer, I hope you can succeed in Utah.
