Despite the best efforts by the San Antonio Spurs to bring veteran forward Josh Howard to San Antonio for a visit, and likely a recruiting spiel, the Jazz could be close to bringing Howard back into the fold with the Jazz.
Five years ago, this would have been heart breaking news for Spurs fans. But after fans chimed in against the Spurs recruiting the former all-star, whose best days are behind him, I can almost hear the sighs of relief as I put these words to digital paper.
According to the report, posted on bettor.com via the Salt Lake Tribune, while nothing is confirmed, both parties have mutual interest in Howard going back to Salt Lake City for his second season with the Jazz.
Josh is still without a team for next season, and worked out for the San Antonio Spurs a few days ago, but the Jazz are reported to be nearing a deal to bring him back.The Salt Lake Tribune has reported that the Jazz and Howard have reached a mutual agreement, hinting that he may very well return to the Salt Lake City next season.
