Now there’s a 7′ foot center out there that wants to join in on this party and destroy yet another franchise.

The Knicks currently have $35 Million in cap space and could have as much as $80 Million in the summer of 2017, just the type of money Dwight Howard is looking for.
Last season with the Houston Rockets, Howard averaged a double-double of 13.7 points and 11.8 rebounds on 62 percent shooting in 71 games for the 41-41 Rockets.
