Josh Howard is reportedly visiting with the Philadelphia 76ers this week.

Free agent forward Josh Howard will be meeting with the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday and Tuesday, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports. Howard visited with the San Antonio Spurs last week and is reportedly receiving interest from the Minnesota Timberwolves, as well.

The 32-year-old Wake Forest product spent last season with the Utah Jazz, averaging 8.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 23 minutes per game in 43 games (18 starts) over the 2011-12 season. Originally selected by the Dallas Mavericks with the No. 29 overall selection in the 2003 NBA Draft, Howard was traded to the Washington Wizards in the middle of the 2009-10 season as part of a deal that included Drew Gooden, James Singleton and Quinton Ross for Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson.

The 6'7", 210-pound forward has averaged 14.5 points points and 5.7 rebounds per game in 496 career games.
