Chris Broussard reports that Chris Paul and Dwight Howard have been in touch with each other and want to join forces next season.

On the surface this report needs to be taken at face value and this report has already been rumored earlier this summer. Still if you are the Atlanta Hawks and are capable of clearing out all but $18 million in cap space, then this is the home run ball that you are looking for.

The Hawks are one of a few teams that have enough room to work this but getting both guys under contract won't be easy. The Dallas Mavericks are another option although they would have to do a little more work with their roster to shed some more salary.

In the meantime this should serve as a reminder of what is on the horizon once the NBA Draft is over and the free agency season arrives.
