Houston Rockets fans, take a good look at Dwight Howard because you may have already seen him play his last game in Rockets jersey. Reports say that Dwight is working with the team to find potential trade partners, and that search is continuing during all-star weekend since things would need to happen before the trade deadline next week.
The king of all basketball reporting, Adrian Wojnarowski, reports that Dwight is already expected to leave Houston this summer via free agency but Houston wants to get something in return.
Howard, 30, plans to exercise an opt-out in his contract this summer to become an unrestricted free agent, and uncertainty surrounding the commitment both sides are willing to make has pushed Houston general manager Daryl Morey toward seeking potential trades on the market, league sources said.
Dwight would be open to a trade because it’s already clear the magic the Rockets had last year is long gone. They should be so much better than they are but since they are not, then other locations look alot better.
Question is where will Dwight wind up. It’s anyone’s guess for now.
