3:00pm: Dwight Howard is reportedly thinking about rejoining one of his former teams in free agency this summer, but it’s not the turmoil-stricken Lakers. Instead, the Rockets center is apparently considering the idea of playing for the Magic again, though staying with the Rockets would be his first choice.

We can talk about all this and more in today’s chat.
