Dwight Howard Joins NBA’s Rockets After One Season With Lakers

Dwight Howard is heading to Houston after one season with the Los Angeles Lakers, accepting a contract worth $30 million less to join a younger roster and become the latest in a line of Rockets big men that includes Hakeem Olajuwon, Dikembe Mutombo and Yao Ming.

“I’ve decided to become a member of the Houston Rockets,” Howard said last night on his site after changing his avatar into a Rockets uniform. “I feel it’s the best place for me and I am excited.”
