NBA Rumors – We crave for rumors and the rumor mill provides. The latest word on the street is that the two most coveted free agents of this summer, Dwight Howard and Chris Paul, could be teaming up.

According to an ESPN report, the two superstars would love to play together, and practically the only place where the two could be signed to max deals would be in Atlanta, who has tons of cap space.

The source says that CP3 and Howard have been communicating through text messages. The two would certainly create a mean pick and roll combination.

However, Dwight doesn’t seem too happy about going back to his hometown, but would probably reconsider if the two superstars were to be assembled in the same team.

At this point, this is just a rumor, but if the both players were to leave L.A. this summer, the two teams would have their dreams of championship contention derailed by at least a couple of years.

What do you think? Any chance Howard, Paul and Al Horford create a new Big 3 next season? Let us know in the comment section down below.
