Once the best center in the NBA, Howard has seen a drop-off in production over the last few years. However, Howard has opted out of his player contract worth around $23 million with the Houston Rockets and is looking to make a splash in free agency.

Last season, Howard put up averages of 13.7 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game. He managed those numbers while working in a system that didn’t fit his game all while suffering through chemistry issues alongside superstar James Harden. If Howard can find the right system on a team that understands and respects his abilities, he can surely thrive once again.

The real problem with Howard is his head. He tends to make waves and have “issues” everywhere he goes. However, team president Pat Riley has a way of getting through to players that have a history like Howard’s by stressing a “no-nonsense” type of attitude throughout the organization. If Riley can get Howard to buy into the Heat’s business-minded mantra, he could once again become a dominant force in the league, and one that the Heat would be happy to have.
