Dwight Howard net worth and salary: Dwight Howard is an American professional basketball player who has a net worth of $100 million. When you include endorsements and salary, Dwight Howard makes over $27 million per year. As of February 2014, Dwight plays center for the Houston Rockets and earns a base salary of $20.5 million. Dwight Howard was born on December 8, 1985, in Atlanta, Georgia. Howard is a seven-time All-Star. Dwight Howard had athleticism in his blood, as his father is a Georgia State Trooper and Athletic Director of Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy. Howard knew from a young age that he was deeply interested and committed to basketball, winning "High School Player of the Year", while attending the school his father worked at. After graduating, Howard entered the 2004 NBA Draft, and was chosen by the Orlando Magic. He was extremely successful right out of the gate. His team made it all the way to the 2007 NBA Playoffs. Howard also won the 2008 NBA slam dunk contest, and has since led in rebounds and blocks, particularly during the 2008-2009 season. At his massive height of 6'11″ and weight of 265 pounds, Howard is noted as a remarkable player, and has been called "gifted" by other NBA players and coaches. His only weakness is a low free throw conversion percentage, and, frankly, when one sees how high he can jump, the weakness is insignificant. As a devout Christian, Howard attends church regularly, and helps with church youth programs. He also created the Dwight D. Howard Foundation Inc, which both organizes basketball camps for young children, and gives out scholarships for students to Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy.
