Howard Joins the Taiwan Mustangs

The Asian Tournament (TAT) team, the Taiwan Mustangs, has made a major announcement by signing former NBA superstar Dwight Howard. Howard will take on the roles of shareholder, team owner, and player. The Mustangs will hold a press conference on the 19th to introduce Howard, who will join virtually. In addition to his playing duties, Howard is actively recruiting other stars to join the team. Recently, he revealed that former NBA player Quinn Cook and T1 League Finals MVP DeMarcus Cousins are set to join the Mustangs.

Star-Studded Recruitment

Howard previously hinted at recruiting several NBA stars to the Mustangs but kept the names under wraps. On the 17th, he finally revealed on his YouTube show, “Above The Rim with DH 12,” that the first player he recruited was former Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers guard Quinn Cook. Howard expressed his excitement about reuniting with Cook, saying he was thrilled to play alongside him again after their time with the Lakers.

Press Conference and New Recruit

The Taiwan Mustangs will host a press conference on the 19th, where Howard plans to announce his second major recruit. However, Shams Charania from The Athletic preemptively revealed on Twitter that the next player joining the Mustangs is DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins, who recently helped the Taoyuan Leopards secure their first T1 League championship, was also named Finals MVP.

Reunion of Former Lakers

Howard, Cook, and Cousins all have ties to the Los Angeles Lakers. Cook won championships with the Warriors in 2018 and the Lakers in 2020, alongside Howard. Cousins joined the Lakers in 2019 but was released before playing a game due to an injury. Despite this, the Lakers awarded him a championship ring when they won the title. This reunion in Taiwan offers Cousins the chance to finally play alongside Howard and Cook, fulfilling a long-standing dream.

Looking Forward

The addition of Howard, Cook, and Cousins marks a new era for the Taiwan Mustangs, bringing significant star power and experience to the team. Fans eagerly anticipate the upcoming season and the impact these former NBA stars will have on the court.(Superace88)
