Trail Blazers one of four 'favorites' to sign Houston Rockets' Dwight Howard: Report

The Houston center is expected to opt out of his contract and become a free agent. The Blazers are among four teams that are the frontrunners to sign Howard, according to a report.

Magic one of the favorites to sign Dwight Howard, according to report

The Magic are reportedly one of four teams considered a favorite to sign Howard this summer. The Orlando Magic can't seem to fully shake themselves of former star Dwight Howard. Four years after his departure from the Magic in a blockbuster trade with the Los Angeles Lakers, Howard could be looking to return to his old stomping grounds. A reported surfaced in March claiming that Howard had interest in returning to the team that drafted him 12 years ago this summer. Future reports detailed that the Magic would not entertain a Howard return this summer. Yet again, as the Houston Rockets,...

Charlotte Hornets are a frontrunner for Dwight Howard in free agency, according to report

THE VIEW FROM HOUSTON / Amid collapse, Howard did little to stop it

HOUSTON — Dwight Howard sat at his locker, as supine as the chair at his locker would allow, looking like a knockout victim. Sports wrap held huge bags of ice against his knees, his standard postgame recovery ritual, but he also held one against his upper lip to limit the swelling. With the embarrassing defeat - the game was tied at the end of the first and second quarters, but the Warriors blew it open with a 41-point third period - the Rockets are one loss from the end of their season. Granted it was a marketing thing, but Howard’s installation into the Rockets’ “Legacy of...
