Golden State Warriors Will Use Jerry West For Dwight Howard Pitch


We learned over the weekend that highly coveted free agent center Dwight Howard would be meeting with the Golden State Warriors after the start of free agency, but now we know just what the Warriors have in store for their pitch for Howard. According to reports, the Warriors will be using a certain legend to convince Howard to join their squad.

From Sam Amick of USA Today:

The Dwight Howard saga will be one of the most interesting story lines to watch during the free agency period.

Howard will first visit the Houston Rockets, before meeting with Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks in Los Angeles. It will be interesting to see what pitches hit home with Howard and where he ultimately decides to go.

Free agency kicks off just after midnight, so be sure to stay tuned to FanSided.com throughout the free agency period as we keep you up to date with the latest news and rumors from around the league.
