Report: Dwight Howard to join Rockets

Coveted free agent center Dwight Howard will play for the Houston Rockets next season. According to USA TODAY Sports the deal is for 4 years and 88-million dollars.

The report is attributed to a source who spoke on condition of anonymity because Howard’s decision has not been announced. Deals cannot be made official until July 10 per NBA rules.

Howard turned down offers from Atlanta, Golden State, Dallas and the L.A. Lakers. He could have made another 30-million dollars with a 5-year deal with the Lakers.

Howard played just one season in Los Angeles after being traded from the Orlando Magic in a four-team deal last year.
