Dwight Howard Net Worth $100 Million

So how rich is Dwight Howard? It is estimated that Dwight’s net worth is about $100 million, his wealth being gained through his career as a basketball player, and also through his sponsorship activities which are a result of his talent in playing basketball.

Both of Dwight Howard’s parents are related to athletics and this might have influenced Dwight’s choice to play basketball. Dwight’s father, Dwight Sr, was Athletic Director of Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy, while his mother Sheryl played on the inaugural women’s basketball team at Morris Brown College. Dwight studied at the Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy, where he shone playing basketball, becoming National High School Player of the Year in 2004.

That year Dwight was drafted by the “Orlando Magic”, becoming the first to play all 82 games during his rookie season, and with whom he played for eight years. This was the time when Dwight Howard’s net worth began growing, and it has never stopped.

In 2012 Dwight Howard was traded to the “Los Angeles Lakers”, but had not fully recovered from a back injury suffered at Orlando and was not able to play full time. Despite the fact that being a part of “Los Angeles Lakers” added a lot to Howards’ net worth, he did not belong to this team for a long time and in 2013 he began playing for “Houston Rockets”. Dwight continues playing in this team and now it is the main source of his net worth.

During his career, Dwight has won many different awards, including eight times NBA All-Star (2007–2014), five times All-NBA First Team (2008–2012), three times NBA Defensive Player of the Year (2009–2011), four times NBA All-Defensive First Team (2009–2012) and many others. Dwight became even more famous when in 2008 he won a gold medal at the 2008 Olympics with USA basketball’s national team. Dwight is still only 29 years old, so he will probably continue playing and achieving outstanding results.

If to talk about Dwight Howard’s personal life, it can be said that he had a relationship with Royce Reed, who later gave birth to their son, however at the time their son was born, they had already broken up. In 2014 Dwight had some problems with the law as Royce Reed accused him of abusing their son, but Howard explained that he hit his son with a belt in order to discipline him and did not see anything wrong with that.

Finally, Dwight Howard is a very talented and successful basketball player, who has been playing basketball since he was just a small boy. Now his name is well known in the basketball world. Let’s hope that he will continue playing for a long time.
