As has been well-documented, Dwight Howard has bounced around the NBA in recent years, garnering a reputation as a volatile locker room presence.

Sunday night, the Wizards' new center became a late-night talk show punchline. 

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver roasted Howard during a segment on trade, which Oliver jokingly defined as, "The basic system of barter and exchange that you have to do really carefully, or you end up with Dwight Howard."

"Seriously parents, talk to your children about trade," Oliver continued. "You don't want them going to school with pizza Lunchables, and coming home with Dwight Howard. You think he's gonna add a three-point shot to his game now, kid? Grow up."

The final joke seems to be a reference to a Washington Post article which quoted Howard's trainer Justin Zormelo as saying, "He wants to evolve into Anthony Davis, into Kevin Durant, but his own version of that."

Howard undoubtedly presents a risk for the Wizards given Washington's now his fifth team in four seasons, but thankfully the Wizards didn't have to give up any Lunchables to sign him after Brooklyn bought out his contract.
