Josh Howard Will Consider Re-Signing With Jazz
Excerpts from an interview Monday with Jazz forward Josh Howard
Howard on how everything's working out for him with Utah: This definitely will be a place I can see myself finishing my career at. The fan support is great. [Taking] into account the players that are here, the guys come to work everyday, no matter what the situation is. That was something I was looking for after leaving D.C. I'm not saying nothing bad about them. But I just wanted guys that'll come out and play hard, night-in an night-out.
When 2011-12 season ends, he'll give Jazz full consideration: I would hope so. I would never look anybody away. I love this game so much I'm willing to work for whatever opportunity is given to me. I hope they give me an opportunity. I know right now I'm not playing as much. But I've got to stay prepared and stay ready. Hopefully that won't be a factor in it. At the start of the year, I showed people what I can do and what I used to be able to do. It's just a matter of timing and prayer.
