Juwan Howard thanks Minny for buyout

Juwan Howard is facing his semi-former team tonight when Minnesota visits Dallas. Howard was traded from Houston during the offseason and took part in training camp/preseason with the Timberwolves.

Howard asked for a trade to a contender and when that wasn’t possible, a contract buyout was negotiated. After considering several high-profile suitors, he signed with Dallas on Nov. 1.

Howard expressed his thanks to Wolves owner Glen Taylor, vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale and coach Randy Whitman, and called the organization “first class.”

“They understood my situation and did whatever was possible to make me happy,” Howard said. “You don’t find it too often in this league when an organization will respect a player.”
