Per ESPN. Might wanna hold the presses with the current state of media though, they say he hasn't notified the Rockets yet but, he told all other teams he won't be signing with them.

Now... Worst trade ever by the Lakers?

Yea, pretty much. Mavs been told that they're out of the chase and GSW signed Iggy. Pretty much Houston.

And apparently Cuban admitted they were moving forward as well, if I heard correctly on NBAtv earlier.

Lol, as I said...

UPDATE: apparently, in true D12 fashion, Howard's agent told Yahoo! Sports that he has not finalized his decision.

Let's hope the Lakers doesnt go TANK MODE. Bc we all know if they do, they will be guarantee the no1 pick for Andrew Wiggins.

I was really hoping that Howard would go to GSW in a trade for Barnes so he could at least come and help the Lakers be somewhat competitive. Knowing Kobe being a competitive person it's hard to imagine that he'll sit out, but Cowherd made a good point this morning that it would be wise for the Lakers to sit Kobe out for the season with him coming back from the Achilles injury.

Well according to what I just read the Warrior are still in play for D12 as well, they would have to do a sign and trade now though involving Bogut and either Thomspon or Barnes. I'd say Barnes would likely be in the deal since they just signed iggy.

I'd like to see them add in Josh Smith too. Now, that'd be a fun team.

The Rockets are going to have to move Lin, Asik or both to make the D12 deal work. Anyway, with that I can't see a Harden, Parson, Howard team being any better than what it is last season if they don't bring in another guy like Smith.

No doubt about it... The Lakers will get a top 3 pick.

I really think the Buzzcats are better than the Lakers this year.

Even with this move, I don't see the Rockets being any better. The west is still run by OKC and the Spurs with Memphis and the Clippers peeping in. If the Spurs are able to add a Monta Ellis, AK47 or both they will easily win the West bc they have two of the greatest men alive: Pop and Duncan.
