How Juwan Howard Jr. connected with Fizdale for a Summer League spot

Juwan Howard Jr. emailed Fizdale in the spring from Luxembourg after his father hadn’t said boo to him about rejoining the Heat’s summer team for a third whirl. The elder Howard coached his son in one of those summers and called it “a dream come true.’’

But this time, Howard Jr. got the hint.

“I needed to take my career upon myself and I think he’s happy I took the initiative,’’ Howard Jr. told The Post at the Knicks’ hotel. “I just emailed him my bio and stats, what I did this year and he responded, ‘Let me talk to my people.’

The invitation came soon after, and as a result, all 30 NBA teams will get another look at Howard Jr., who hasn’t given up the fight. One of his hopes is an invite to the G-League Westchester Knicks.
