It appears that the Houston Rockets attempt to sign pending free agent Dwight Howard is gaining momentum. Marc Stein of ESPN reported yesterday that the Rockets have received what has been described as “hopeful signals” that Howard is seriously considering a jump from the Los Angeles Lakers to Houston after he hits the free agent market on July 1.While Howard has shown that he changes his mind not infrequently, the big man has reportedly conveyed his rising interest to Rockets swingman James Harden. Howard has also made it clear that he’ll field in-person recruiting visits from the Rockets and Dallas Mavericks – who also are expected to pursue the free agent – according to sources.There were reports last week that the Rockets are planning on trading away former No. 5 overall pick Thomas Robinson to clear cap space so that they can offer Howard a max deal of roughly four years and $90 million. The Lakers can offer five years and $120 million, but the absence of state taxes in Texas narrows the gap between LA and Houston and Dallas.Follow @hoopsinjurynews

I don’t think there is anything Kobe can say at the moment that will affect Dwight Howard’s decision. To me it is a very simple decision for Howard.
If he is too afraid of the spotlight and being the face of a franchise like the Lakers, he will sign with the Rockets. But, Kobe for his part wants to have the final word before he makes a decision.
“For me, you kind of let him...
