Dwight Howard is spending his offseason continuing to change lives in Tanzania

Dwight Howard has been using his offseasons to promote numerous philanthropic works in Tanzania, but his latest effort is making a life-changing impact on young women.

The NBA Players Association detailed Howard’s work alongside Sustainable Philanthropy Partners in East Africa to ensure girls have the basic sanitary products they need, which has a domino effect on their education. Howard explained to the NBPA:

“For a lot of the girls in these schools, once they go through their cycles, [the situation] is shunned upon,” he told the NBPA. “And they’re afraid to go to school because they get talked about.”

It’s no surprise that Minnesota is now on the list of teams Irving hopes to play for.

Butler and Irving were both a member of the 2016 USA Olympic team that won gold in Brazil. The two are reportedly close and were recorded playing in a pickup game together earlier this weekend.

It is fair to wonder what the Bulls could have traded for Irving. Chicago’s recent draft picks have struggled to make an impact and the team’s strategy in free agency had them signing veterans like Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo instead of young players with upside and trade value.

The Bulls are now squarely in rebuilding mode. Chicago will be expected to be one of the worst teams in the NBA this season and should be looking at a high lottery pick in the 2018 draft. Butler remains under contract for two more seasons in Minnesota.

The Irving trade rumors are just starting Cheap Game Jerseys to heat up. It Cheap Football Jerseys From China appears that the Bulls could have put themselves in that mix before deciding to trade their franchise player.

Klay Thompson is dancing, dunking, and arm-wrestling his way through China

The Warriors should start shopping for a new shooting guard in free agency because I’m not sure that Klay Thompson is ever coming back from his trip to China. He’s hit his peak there. He’s dancing, dunking, dancing some more, and losing arm-wrestling matches to children who tickle him.

On Friday, he re-upped his sneaker deal with Anta, who he is currently touring with, for 10 years worth as much as $80 million. He noted that he wanted to become the Michael Jordan of the company, according to Nice Kicks. He also said he knew he could be “really big in China,” and he absolutely has been this summer.

Reports of Irving’s trade request come on the heels of his public comments regarding Cleveland being in a “peculiar place” this offseason. The Cavaliers have yet to hire a new general manager after David Griffin’s departure, and owner Dan Gilbert reportedly lowballed Chauncey Billups with an offer well below market value to be the team’s president of basketball operations.

The Cavaliers have been to three consecutive NBA Finals, winning the franchise’s lone championship in 2016. But after losing decisively to the Warriors last season, Cleveland failed to meaningfully upgrade the roster.

The Cavaliers signed Jeff Green, Jose Calderon and Cheap NFL Jerseys Turkish forward Cedi Osman in free agency while re-signing Kyle Korver. Meanwhile, the Warriors re-signed each of their core players and added Nick Young and rookie Jordan Bell Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys this offseason. The Boston Celtics signed Gordon Hayward in free agency, and the Houston Rockets added Chris Paul, P.J. Tucker, Tarik Black and Luc Mbah a Moute.
