Dwight Howard has been outspoken about the NBA these days.

He recently weighed in on Kawhi Leonard’s future and more.

While on the red carpet for the Samuel L. Jackson-starred Shaft movie, I asked Howard if he would have been a good fit with the Golden State Warriors had he signed with them before the 2019-19 season.

“Well it is hard so say,” Howard told Scoop B Radio.

“But I am extremely happy for Toronto for what they are doing right now. One of my closest friends in the NBA is on that team.”

If you’re tardy to the party: The closest friend Howard is referring to is Jodie Meeks.

Howard and Meeks were Los Angeles Lakers during the 2012-2013 season. Howard was impressed with both the Warriors and Raptors.

“I think this has been one of the most competitive playoffs in the past couple of years,” he told me.

“Both in the Eastern Conference and in the Western Conference every series have been great. So, I am excited to get back to work next season.”

Howard was a member of the Houston Rockets from 2013-16 before opting of the final year of his four year deal with the team.

Per USA Today’s Landon Buford: Even though Houston wanted to retain the former eight-time All-Star, the hiring of Howard’s former coach, Mike D’Antoni signaled it wasn’t going to be a great fit for Howard going forward. Instead, Howard would sign a three-year deal with the Atlanta Hawks and he is now a member of the Washington Wizards, though he missed most of last year due to injuries.
