Much has been made of the teams that Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard has said that he would be open to joining when he becomes a free agent this summer: the Los Angeles Lakers, New Jersey Nets and the reigning NBA champion Dallas Mavericks.

It appears that the 26-year-old five-time All-Star and three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year is open to adding the Boston Celtics. After all, the Celtics will have a good deal of cash to throw around this summer when the contracts of Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen come off the books.

"I'd always listen to a team like that," Howard told the Herald. "I want to win a championship, and it takes a certain type of team to win a championship. You know, there's a lot of teams who are great during the regular season. They play well, but it's different once you play in those playoffs, you know?"

Of course, Howard might just win a championship with Orlando this season. Then what would he do?
