Here's tonight's look around the Association as the three-day weekend comes to a close..
- Sources around Dwight Howard say that he is high on the Rockets, but those are the same sources who said that he would fight hard to go to the Nets, Bill Ingram of HoopsWorld notes. If he does end up in Houston, Ingram believes he'll be disappointed to learn that the offense will still run through James Harden.
- While nothing is sure with Howard, Ingram (via Twitter) sees him winding up with the Rockets when all is said and done.
- Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer (on Twitter) likes the Bobcats' hire of Steve Clifford. Clifford has done everything in the league and seems ready for the job, which Bonnell couldn't say for Mike Dunlap.
- Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today writes that Chris Andersen has been a perfect addition for the Heat.
