Dwight Howard is a free agent this offseason for the first time in his career and is widely expected to decide between the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks. "It's free agency and I have the opportunity to choose where I'm going to play," said Howard. "God opens doors, and I'm relying on my faith to direct me. "I don't think it's fair I get criticized for waiting on such an opportunity." Howard was asked what he wants in a team. "I want to win; I've done everything else," he said. "I just want to win." Howard also spoke warmly about Mike D'Antoni, though he did seem to express his feelings in the past tense. "He's a great person and I'm glad we had the opportunity to be together," said Howard. Howard will make in-person visits to each of the teams interested in signing him. "I want to see what each opportunity offers," Howard said. "I want to see how people plan on winning."
