Let’s pump the brakes on that Dwight Howard to Houston rumor.
David Aldridge of NBA.com, citing a source, reports there is “not a chance” Howard would stay in Houston after this season if he is traded there.
Houston has been rumored to be willing to “rent” Howard and attempt to work out a deal after they trade for him, which is clearly quite the risk. If Howard says there is absolutely no way he’d stick around in Houston, how could the Rockets justify making the move?
