When free agency begins on July 1, the most coveted free agents on the market, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul, reportedly want to play together and are hoping to land on the same team next season.
According to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com:
Chris Paul and Dwight Howard have been in consistent contact recently about the possibility of becoming teammates next season, according to league sources.
Paul and Howard will be the biggest free agents on the market this summer and their desire is to play together, the sources said.
The preference for both players would be to play together for the Clippers, according to the sources. Because the Clippers don’t have enough cap room to sign Howard as a free agent, it would take a sign-and-trade deal with the Lakers to make it happen.
