Insider: 2013 NBA Free Agents

Clearly, all of the basketball news in Central Florida surrounds Dwight Howard and his apparent change of heart (Howard will reportedly sign long term with the Los Angeles Lakers if dealt there).

If Howard doesn’t sign anywhere long term, he will become part of one star studded free agency class, joining the likes of Clippers point guard Chris Paul and Hawks forward Josh Smith.

Several teams, including Smith’s Hawks and the Houston Rockets, have already begun clearing cap room in an anticipation.
