This is obviously not official until Howard himself confirms this, but Amick is realiable so we can assume that this is true.
So it seems that Howard wasn’t that impressed with the Warriors efforts after all, and soon after the news broke that the Dallas Mavericks were out of the running for him, Rockets have landed him.
If the report is correct, Howard will be joining James Harden and a nice up-and-coming roster in Houston. The Rockets have been considered as the favorites to land Howard, mostly due to the fact that the team is in the best situation possible to contend for a championship, whereas the other candidates still had glaring holes in their rosters.
