08:03 AM ET 09.26 | Anthony Tolliver is off the board -- Marquis Daniels is, too, and Dan Gadzuric may be close to signing. At this point in the offseason, there aren't many free agents remaining on the market. ... Josh Howard is in Philadelphia this week to work out for the 76ers. Howard may be the best free agent remaining on the market and he has also drawn interest from the San Antonio Spurs, Minnesota Timberwolves, Charlotte Bobcats and Utah Jazz this offseason. Last season, the 32-year-old played 43 games for the Jazz, averaging 8.7 points and 3.7 rebounds. Howard has been weighing his options for several weeks now. He'll likely have to settle for a deal worth the veteran's minimum.

Howard used to be a pretty good player for Dallas. It's unfortunate what injuries can do to a player's career.

Well if he's gonna take the minimum, I say come to the Knicks, we're into the over 30 players it seems. At least Josh has 2-3 solid years left. Can't say that for the others though they'll help!

Josh was good for Dallas, especially during their first Finals appearance years ago.

After which he went to hell in a handbasket.

LOL - He all of people knows that - He's a Grizz fan and is an ok guy- I think he's just having a little back / forth fun with a Jazz fan.

Alright then. Get jaded by the NY or nothing crowd. All 3 of our teams (Nugs,Jazz, Griz) are in the same boat - renewed hope every Fall and and falling short in Spring. Still looking forward to Lawson, Iggy, McGee...

This griz fan does not want him. We play the national athem before every game.

Yeah, weighing their options, bet the phone never makes it to the second ring.

One of the side effects of marijuana is the "I don't give a damn" attitude. It may be a little too late in the game for Howard to become a factor.
