According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Houston Rockets are currently the favorites to land Dwight Howard and will be the first team to meet with him. The Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks, Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers will also meet with the All-Star center beginning Sunday, and he could have a decision this week.
After two years of careful planning and preparation to make themselves irresistible to Dwight Howard, the Houston Rockets have emerged as the frontrunners to sign the free agent center and will make a formal presentation to him on Sunday night in Los Angeles, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
The Rockets, Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors and Lakers will make presentations between Sunday’s midnight ET start of free agency and Tuesday evening, sources told Y! Sports.
Howard doesn’t want this process to extend long beyond his final meetings on Tuesday and could have a decision before the end of the week, sources said.
