Wizards’ Dwight Howard Believes Winning Title in Washington More Meaningful Than Golden State

Washington Wizards’ big man Dwight Howard believes that winning an NBA Championship in the city of Washington would have more meaning than a championship win in Golden State.

The franchise last won a title during the 1977-78 season when they were the Washington Bullets.

“I just think Golden State, they’ve won a couple championships in the past couple of years” Howard said, according to NBC Sports’ Washington’s Chase Hughes.

“So, me going there and winning it’s like ‘well, you went to a team that’s already won.’  In D.C., I think the last time the Wizards won they were the Bullets if I’m not mistaken. So, I think that impact would be bigger for the city.”

The New York Knicks are not expected to give Kristaps Porzingis a contract extension before the end of Monday’s deadline, which will make the budding franchise player a restricted free agent next summer, according to ESPN’s Ian Begley.

Porzingis’ season-ending torn ACL and a desire to create as much cap flexibility so they can be major players in next summer’s free agency appear to be the main factors in the team coming to this decision.
