Dwight Howard is strongly considering signing with his third team this summer, and the Rockets are the prime candidate, writes CBSSports.com's Ken Berger. Even though the Lakers are strong front-runners to re-sign the All-Star center and make him their next franchise player–they can offer the most guaranteed money and a fifth year of service.
However, Howard is reportedly showing more interest in Houston's young team. They have more room to grow and improve than Los Angeles, and from a purely basketball standpoint they most likely represent his best chance at winning an NBA championship in the immediate future.
The Mavericks are another team that intrigues Howard, and they should be able to carve enough cap space to sign him if the 27-year-old is willing to sign a four-year deal.
