Is Thibs The Reason Howard Won’t Play In Chicago?

(WSCR) Initially, Dwight Howard left the Bulls off the list of teams he’d be willing to play for if traded.

Though recently he said he might be open to the idea of coming to Chicago, one NBA analyst said Howard might not like playing in Tom Thibodeau’s system.

“Look at Orlando right now,” Alex Kennedy of told The Mully and Hanley Show. “Dwight and Stan Van Gundy have had their problems. Dwight has complained about how long Stan’s practices are, how long his shoot arounds are, how Stan is always getting on his players and yelling at them. That’s definitely very possible.”

While a trade appears imminent, Kennedy thinks the Magic may hold on to Howard.

“I think that Orlando is going to try to keep Dwight past the trade deadline and let this thing play out until July,” Kennedy said. “In July they could always still move him, do a sign and trade, or there have been talks that they would refuse a trade and call his bluff to see if he’s actually willing to leave $30 million on the table to go sign else where.”
