Rockets guard Jason Terry is not convinced former All-Star center Dwight Howard is done in Houston

“I wouldn’t rule (a return) out,” Terry said in an interview with Justin Termine and Eddie Johnson on SiriusXM NBA Radio. “He has yet to opt out. Again, it’s just going to depend on if you get the right coach in there. At this point in his career, he’s not going to be the focal point offensively. They’ve made that clear. He’s gonna have to, if he remains in Houston, buy into the role fully, commit himself to setting screens, rebounding, running the floor, blocking shots and working on his free throws, obviously.”

Howard, who has a player option on his contract for $23.3 million, finished the season with an average of 13.7 ppg, his worst mark since his rookie year. He’s currently at No. 8 in our free agent rankings.
