Dwight Howard previously wanted a trade from the Orlando Magic to either the Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers or Dallas Mavericks.
The Houston Rockets were involved in trade talks, but Howard appeared unwilling to commit long-term to the franchise.
But sources say Howard is aware that the Rockets have emerged as a more attract destination due to their acquisition of James Harden.
Howard reportedly does not want to play in his hometown of Atlanta, and the Mavericks have been trending in the wrong direction from a few months ago.
The Rockets will also pursue Andrew Bynum if Howard is unavailable.

There is no team that is attractive and can afford max contract ... guy is like what ? 27 ? he has about 8 more years, you wouldn't go to rockets( In terms of first option, Harden=Kobe) you'd play percentages, Miami or OKC are closer to championships and both cant afford a max contract.. Unless Miami get rid of Dwade which i doubt ..
Don't think he'll wake up one day in a place other than Los Angeles ..

This is more obvious by the second
"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."

If anything it's a bad situation. The lakers are the best situation, compete now, cap room in another season

The reason the lakers feel secure that howard will re-sign this summer, is because dan gave jerry his word that he would. heck,
dan did most of the back-channel work on the three team trade.
Until they here differently from dan, the lakers expect to re-sign him in the off-season.
The reason why I refer to it as three team trade is because the lakers were willing to swap a bynum package for a howard package. what made the deal work/happen
is dan finding a suitor for richardson's contract, finding the third team (nuggets) with some assets to send to orlando.
The reason why we never heard of sixers/nuggets is because orlando had better offers that they were contemplating, but howard wouldn't oblige to go to those teams.
I posted in the large howard thread that all of you should thank dan for getting him here, and you should. It was his relentlessness of wanting to get howard to a team
of his choosing which made it happen. And i can plainly tell you that dan gave his word to the lakers that he would re-sign.
Could things change? Sure, but the lakers have heard nothing from dan that howard plans on changing his mind. So they're moving forward with
the mind frame that he's re-signing.

Dwight is "aware". It makes it sound like the rockets are a foreign team, or something.
