Josh Howard Chooses Utah Jazz, According To Report

Josh Howard has chosen to sign with the Utah Jazz, reports ESPN's Chris Broussard.

Howard had recently been reported to be considering the Jazz, San Antonio Spurs and Washington Wizards. Howard spent the last season and a half in D.C., though he played little due to injury. The Dallas Mavericks had sent his expiring contract to the Wizards in the 2010 trade that brought Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson to Big D.

Howard will compete with C.J. Miles for minutes at small forward; the Jazz's 2010 and 2011 draft picks Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks should be slotted in at shooting guard. The Jazz are in an interesting spot, with young prospects Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Hayward and Burks on the roster along with veterans Al Jefferson, Paul Millsap, Devin Harris and now Howard. One would expect a number of moves before the March 15 deadline to free up the roster a bit.
