Dwight Howard had nothing but good words to say about his teammate in the Philadelphia 76ers Joel Embiid.

Howard said Embiid is the star of the team and the veteran big man has no plans to change that.

“I know Joel is the star center. I’m not looking to come in here and take his job,” Howard told reporters, via Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Howard, who won the 2020 NBA championship with the Los Angeles Lakers, agreed to an one-year, $2.5M deal with the Sixers and is expected to be the backup center.
