Could The Bulls Add Dwight Howard?

(CBS) On the list of players that would look good playing next to Derrick Rose in a Bulls uniform, it would be hard to find someone better than Dwight Howard.

The Orlando Magic star could be on the move via trade and the Bulls are a “sleeper” to add Howard, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.

In a report today, Wojnarowski wrote:

The Chicago Bulls are still a sleeper for Howard, several league executives believe. “Chicago may tell Orlando to take any two players – or three – besides [Derrick] Rose,” one GM said. Howard isn’t keen on the cold weather, but the Bulls would have the best point guard-center combination since Magic and Kareem.

The Bulls have Omar Asik developing fast as a potential replacement for Joakim Noah(notes) should the Bulls include Noah in a package. Noah would have to be a part of it, but would a combination of Noah and Luol Deng(notes) or Carlos Boozer(notes) – bringing back Howard and one of those bad Orlando contracts – be enough? The Magic need a force to replace Howard, an anchor.

The report says the Lakers are likely the favorites for Howard, who also want to add Chris Paul.
