The Nets are still looking for a back-up small forward and Marc J. Spears tweets that Brooklyn is one of five teams that Josh Howard is interested in. The others are the Jazz, Pacers, Warriors and Knicks. He's expected to decide soon, writes Spears. The 6'7" Howard was an all-Star in Dallas under Avery Johnson in 2007. He's 32.

Since then, he's been involved in a number of controversies and suffered a torn ACL. Last season, he played 43 games for the Jazz, averaging 8.7 points and 3.7 rebounds, but shot less than 40% overall and less than 25% from deep. Howard has played a total of 96 games over the past three seasons but says he is healthy. He earned $3 million last year, but would likely settle for the vets minimum.

Following the Spears tweet, Marcus Thompson II of the Contra Costa Times and Brian T. Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune indicated that Warriors and Jazz interest is minimal. Smith reports that Howard appears to be more interested in the Jazz than they are in him.
