Josh Howard will consider re-signing with the Jazz this summer.
“This definitely will be a place I can see myself finishing my career at,” Howard said. “The fan support is great. [Taking] into account the players that are here, the guys come to work everyday, no matter what the situation is. That was something I was looking for after leaving D.C. I'm not saying nothing bad about them. But I just wanted guys that'll come out and play hard, night-in an night-out.”
Howard, an eight-year veteran, agreed to a one-year deal with Utah last December. He was reportedly pursued by the Spurs, Bulls, Nets, and Nuggets during free agency.
“I love this game so much I'm willing to work for whatever opportunity is given to me,” said Howard, who is averaging 8 points on 37.8 percent shooting in 21. 7 minutes per game. “I know right now I'm not playing as much. But I've got to stay prepared and stay ready. Hopefully that won't be a factor in it. At the start of the year, I showed people what I can do and what I used to be able to do. It's just a matter of timing and prayer.”
