The team signed big man Dwight Howard to a 1-year $2.6 million deal and he is expected to be the veteran leader on the team as well as make sure the team does not fall off a cliff when Joel Embiid goes to the bench.

“The reason why I was so locked in on Philly is that Doc was the only coach who called me during this free agency process,” said Howard. “The first one to call me and he said ‘We want you. We want you on our team.’ Then Daryl (Morey) called, and I said this is where I need to be right now. This is where my journey is calling me. I was super happy that Doc called me and gave me an opportunity and I told him ‘yes’.”

One of Howard’s teammates with the Los Angeles Lakers was also influential in his decision. Rajon Rondo played for Rivers for seven seasons in Boston, and Howard talked to Rondo about playing for Rivers.

“Rondo was probably a big contributor,” Howard added. “Just talking with him and the relationship he had with Doc. So I would say Doc and also Elton Brand.”
