Good for Josh Howard. The Mavericks' forward is looking for positive things to attach his name to these days back in his home state of North Carolina. The Greensboro News & Record reports that Howard's foundation, The Josh Howard Foundation, sought out the North Carolina Scholastic Classic, a six-game high school basketball event held on the Martin Luther King holiday at the Greensboro Coliseum, to be the event's presenting sponsor.
It's the first time Howard's two-year-old foundation has lent its name to an event.
"We often help solicit local sponsorships for events we host. In this case, the foundation actually approached us," Andrew Brown, public relations manager for the Greensboro Coliseum, told the News & Record.
"Josh is looking for positive things to attach his name to in the community where he grew up."
So good for Josh.
