"It was a learning experience," Howard said. "It helped me grow as a person and as a leader. We had a lot of young guys ... and being in Dallas and the playoffs I was able to share a lot of knowledge."
The first thing Howard will learn in Utah is he'll have to lose the headband, a rule the Jazz had throughout the Jerry Sloan years.
"He used to wear a headband," Corbin quipped, noting the rule won't change.
On a serious note, Corbin is looking for Howard to be a difference-maker.
"He can play defense, score on the other end and we look forward to helping him get this group over the edge (in terms of) experience and playing at a high level," said Corbin, who has four players 21 or younger on his roster. "He's been to the NBA Finals and knows what that's all about. He's a hungry guy and wants to show this league he can still play."
