if the mavs sign him for a large contract and he reaches his "potential" then great, i just dont want them to lock up their money in another KVH, Croshere, Damp type contract, all good players that weren't, aren't, or won't be worth the 2 or so years of their contract. But hey, that's the risk they weren't willing to take with stevie nash, and look what happened to him.

The main reason I would pay 10 mill to keep Howard is the toughness he provides. He is definately a gritty player that the Mav's need. George and Stackhouse aren't exactley in their prime anymore, and Griffin isn't that great of a scorer. He still hasen't even reached his primeyet . Anyways, being a Bucks fan, we're paying Bobby Simmons about the same and I'd trade him for Howard any day of the week..

Bulls fan here

First off from one city with a Big man dance team to another, good job this season.

Second, wasn't Josh Howard traded?

8-10 million is what he will get and what re rightfully deserves. The guy is more important to our team then yall will ever realize.

he's good, and im a big fan, but personally i think he's overrated... he's less important to this team then you will ever realize

pay more attention to the games and less attention to meaningless stats tv channels come up with to add hype to a game. He's good, but at this point he has rarely served as more than a good role player, and too often disappears on the court.

If he keeps developing i could see him becoming another franchise cornerstone like finley once was, but he's not there yet.

Prince is a better shot blocker and defender. But Josh has the all around game, I really enjoy watching him play. I wouldn't be suprised if he finished next season with a few triple doubles. Josh is worth 7-9 million per year, and Cuban should sign him to a long contract.

Luke Walton went in the second round, it was Brian Cook the Lakers took in the first round instead of Josh Howard that year. They skipped over Barbosa also that year.

Josh is extremely talented and versatile but I think lots of teams see him more like "an ultimate role player" than someone you trade for an all-star (unless the all-star has a really bad contract)

But Josh is stll improving

Close to an all-star level. But not more than Prince.

I'd like to see Josh embrace the role of "ultimate role player" Every successful team needs one of those guys. No shame in being called that. I just wonder if he will settle for that. I'm already worried that last year he was settling for the jumper more than taking it in or getting hustle buckets. He still has some upside. Let's just hope his ego doesn't.

Close to all star level is about what he will be. With the forwards in the west, unless someone is injuried, starts to tail off as he gets older, gets traded to the east, or Josh really busts out. I don't see him making an all star team.
