AP Source: Howard won’t sign with Warriors

A person familiar with the situation says the Golden State

Warriors have been informed by free agent Dwight Howard that he

won’t be signing with them.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated

Press on Friday because Howard has not announced his decision

publicly. Howard met earlier this week with Golden State along with

Houston, Atlanta, Dallas and his previous team, the Los Angeles

Lakers.

The Bay Area News Group first reported Howard had informed the

Warriors he wouldn’t be signing with them.

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban tweeted earlier Friday that it was

”time to get back to work” amid multiple media reports that

Dallas was out of the running for Howard. Cuban also wrote ”the

Mavs are back open for business.”
