It’s only May and the floodgates are slowly but surely giving way to yet another Dwight Howard fiasco.
Ken Burger of CBS Sports has reported that Howard is reportedly considering Houston:
“With six weeks to go before Howard becomes an unrestricted free agent, the team that is said to intrigue him the most is the Houston Rockets, according to multiple people briefed on internal conversations surrounding Howard’s free-agent decision.”
Other potential destinations include Atlanta and Dallas.
The Hawks, who will only have three players on the books entering the offseason, are perennial favorites to land the big man.
Not only is the city of Atlanta Howard’s hometown, but he played his AAU career alongside free agent and Hawks’ veteran Josh Smith.
Dallas, on the other hand, has one of the most influential owners in sports today in Mark Cuban – or at least we know he thinks he is. And after getting burned by Deron Williams in free agency last year, you can bet a pretty penny that Cuban is going to approach Howard with the keys to the kingdom.
