Josh Howard is playing with the Pelicans' Summer League team in the hopes of continuing his NBA career.

Howard's career was derailed by multiple ACL surgeries and he spent last season in the D-League. If he can stay healthy the 34-year-old has a chance to earn a minimum contract, and the Pelicans do need depth at SF, but even if he doesn't latch on with an NBA team he'll continue to play somewhere. "I plan on making a comeback. That's my motivation," Howard said. "Pelicans, D-League, overseas. Whatever happens, just to have the opportunity to play the game that I love. You can't beat that."

Howard last played for the Timberwolves and was with them when he suffered the devastating injury. He's an unrestricted free agent and if his workouts go well this fall, he could end up signing with an NBA team. However, there's no reason to put him on your radar for this year's drafts.

Josh Howard (ACL surgery) wrote on Friday that his rehab is "going great ... it was a clean tear of the ACL this time and nothing else was damaged."

In a post entitled "Staying Positive and Putting It All In Perspective," Howard goes on to thank the Wolves for signing him and he ends on a note suggesting he'll make another NBA comeback attempt.

"Once I figure out what he did - besides his great mental ability to focus in on what he had to do to get back to his old self - the sky's the limit for me."
