Philadelphia 76ers big man Dwight Howard reportedly wants to play for “at least” five more seasons.

Howard, 35, is in his first season with the Sixers, but he has thrived in his role backing up star Joel Embiid.

Last season, Howard won a championship with the Los Angeles Lakers and managed to totally reinvent himself as a player.

After a few injury-riddled seasons, Howard averaged 7.5 points and 7.3 rebounds per game last season off the Lakers’ bench.

Clearly, he believes that he can play a role like that for the foreseeable future.

This year, Howard is averaging 6.6 points and 8.1 rebounds in just 17.5 minutes per game.

As long as he can avoid injuries, the eight-time All-Star still has plenty to offer as a rebounder and rim protector.

The Sixers are currently atop the Eastern Conference with a 12-5 record.
