He will play with the ‘Strong Group’ team in Dubai on a deal that runs through the entire tournament from January 19 to January 28.

Howard’s deal came after a season of personal success in Taiwan while also dealing with legal issues back in his native Atlanta.

Back in October, Howard denied accusations of sexual assault and battery from an incident back in July of 2021.

This came after weeks of speculation - including from Howard himself - about where he may go

Howard said he engaged in ‘consensual sexual activity’ with another man at his home in Georgia.

But the former NBA big man denied accusations of causing injury, false imprisonment and intentional infliction of emotional distressed brought to him by the alleged victim, Stephen Harper

At the time of his denial, an attorney for Howard said his client is looking forward to “presenting the truth” in court.

In Taiwan last season, while Howard couldn’t lead the Taoyuan Leopards to success in wins, he was named the league’s Most Valuable Import. He also lead the league in rebounds, was named to the league’s First Team and All-Defensive First Team, and was named the MVP of the league’s All-Star game.

Howard recently worked out with the Golden State Warriors and while he did not sign with them, he is still pursuing a comeback to the league.

Howard is a three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year and won his first NBA title back in 2020 with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The announcement of his new team came after he joked on Twitter that he could help the struggling Detroit Pistons ‘win some games’ while naming a number of other free agents who could be of service.
