Unrestricted free agent forward Josh Howard continues to negotiate with four teams, including the New York Knicks, The Salt Lake Tribune learned on Thursday.
Howard remains interested in signing with the Jazz. But with Utah's roster set at 15 players and 19 set to appear in camp, the unresolved Raja Bell buyout continues to hamper negotiations.
Howard, 32, averaged 8.7 points and 3.7 rebounds in 43 games (18 starts) for the Jazz during the 2011-12 season. He hopes to sign with a team before camp starts Tuesday, and his interest in Utah hasn't waned.
