Dwight Howard played the 2022-23 season in Taiwan after failing to land a contract with an NBA team last year.
With Howard leaving a good impression on scouts, he’s expecting a comeback to the league for one final stint.
Over the last few days, the Golden State Warriors emerged as one of the favorites to sign the veteran center.
The rumors caught more fire when Howard was seen working out with Warriors veterans Chris Paul and Draymond Green.
But, according to NBA analyst Shams Charania via his official Twitter handle, the Warriors are no longer interested in signing Howard.

Charania says the Warriors aren’t keen to sign any veteran centers, let alone Howard.
It comes as surprising news following the events that have gone on over the last couple of days.
Many Warriors fans were preparing for an official announcement of Howard’s arrival to the Dubs, unfortunately, they will have to postpone those celebrations, at least for now.
As pointed out by Charania, Howard had a two-day workout with the Warriors alongside meeting with the front office.
Team veterans such as Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green reportedly gave the green light to the organization to add Howard.
But the franchise ultimately decided not to bring the 37-year-old center to the roster.
Shams did say that the Warriors are probably trying to maintain flexibility in the roster and may end up signing a big man following training camp.NEXT: Pictures Show Dwight Howard's Workout With 2 Warriors Veterans
