Following in the footsteps of fellow ballers like Kobe Bryant (Kobe Studios), Lebron James (SpringHill Entertainment), and Stephen Curry (Unanimous Media), NBA All-Star and Dwight Howard is getting into the film business. The Washington Wizards center, via Mansa Productions, has come aboard as an executive producer of Percy, an anti-GMO indie film starring Oscar-winner Christopher Walken, Christina Ricci, and Zach Braff.
Dwight Howard: “When I read the script for Percy, I connected with it in a major way. I’ve always been passionate about farming. Most people don’t know that I own a farm outside of Atlanta. I understand the struggles of farmers, the connection to the land and its natural environment. Percy, as result, was a natural fit for my first film investment. This film is important especially with all the environmental issues we are currently facing.”
With Dwight Howard out, the Wizards are weighing their options, but as of now they do not plan to sign a free agent or broker a trade to replace him, a person familiar with the situation told NBC Sports Washington. The Wizards want to first see what they have with their in-house replacements, knowing Howard will be available to return at some point this season.
Howard underwent an L4-L5 lumbar microdiscectomy earlier today. The procedure went as planned with no complications. The procedure was performed by Dr. Robert Watkins in Marina Del Rey, CA, and was recommended after consultation with Dr. Watkins and Wizards Director of Medical Services and Orthopedist Dr. Wiemi Douoguih determined that the disc herniation was causing severe nerve irritation and gluteal pain. Howard’s progress will be re-evaluated in approximately two to three months.
