Dwight Howard strongly considering playing overseas


Amid the frustration of the NBA lockout, Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard is reportedly considering playing overseas in either China or Europe.

According to the Associated Press, Howard stopped short of saying he was in contract negotiations with teams abroad.

“I’m not at liberty to talk about it,” he said, “but there’s a huge possibility about me going to China or me going overseas to play basketball.”

The NBA has already seen one star head overseas to play if the lockout doesn’t end come the beginning of the season. Nets star Deron Williams has already signed with a club in Turkey and it wouldn’t come as a surprise if many more NBA stars follow suit.

“If I decide to go overseas, the main thing is for me to continue to get better, not to do the things that I normally do, but do better at the things I’m not good at,” Howard said. “So I can use that talent to go overseas, working on my skills and staying in great shape.”

Howard is a free agent after the 2011-12 season.
