According to a report, Dwight Howard has a list of teams he is considering in signing with this summer. Sorry Nets fans your team isn’t on that list. The teams as of now are the Lakers, Mavericks, Rockets, Hawks and Warriors. It has been said that Howard is intrugued by the Rockets, picture him teaming up with James Harden. They made moves with the possibility of Dwight Howard in mind which is why the have cap spcae. The Warriors already have their core locked up for sometime so it might not be possible for them to sign Howard unless he waits out another year when they have more cap space, doesn’t seem likely though.
The Mavericks like the Rockets have cap space, but if Mark Cuban was too busy to sit in contract talks with Deron Williams, would he be too busy again this time with Dwight Howard? Yet the idea of teaming Howard up with Dirk Nowitski would be hard to pass up. While Howard is said to have his hometown team the Hawks on his list can’t see him playing for a team that he would be the lone star of the team. That didn’t work well in Orlando and don’t see that working there as well.
Right now it would appear that the Rockets would be the top of his list with the Lakers maybe second. But with Dwight Howard anything is possible, he has been known to change his mind.

This is an impressive list for him to choose from. It would be interesting if he did return to his home town but you’re probably right that that’s not likely.
That is of course he can make up his mind. I do find it surprising for a player as talanted as he is that he waivers so much in what he wants to do in the future. After all it is his to choose.
Agree..Houston or he stands pat. The Rockets would make Jeremy Lin gain a ton of assists and take the pressure off him as well.
Do you still think Lin is as good as his play was in New york and do you think the Knicks did the right thing letting him go?
Simply put, No and yes. He’s a good point guard not a great one. He already has been injured in both his first and second year in the NBA so he might be a bit too injury prone for my liking. We’ll see how next season goes.
Given that Melo yearns for so many ISO’s and that J.R. did so much creating, I’m not sure that Lin would have flourished all too well in N.Y. this past year. Agree?
Yes I agree. It was okay when he was allowed to create without Melo , but once he came back it hurt his game as well as Landry Fields game which never was the same either.
