It looks like “Superman” might be ready to help the USA remain a basketball power. Dwight Howard will return to USA Basketball for the first time in six years according to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
After six years away, Houston Rockets star Dwight Howard will return to USA Basketball with an intent to play in the 2014 World Cup of Basketball, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Howard’s return to the Team USA pool of players for the World Cup in Spain this summer could clear the way for the seven-time All-Star center to be part of the national team at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil.
It’s always a nice look when you play for your country so maybe this will help rehab Dwight’s image a little bit. A frontcourt of Howard, Kevin Love, and Kevin Durant will be pretty tough to deal with.
