Recommendation: Howard hasn't made an official announcement, but USA Today's Sam Amick is one of the more reliable NBA reporters around. There have been other reports saying that the Hawks, Warriors, and Mavericks are all out of the running, which would seem to confirm Amick's report. A Rockets team built around Howard and James Harden won't be taken lightly by anyone in the Western Conference, and if the rumors are accurate, another big piece -- possibly Josh Smith via sign-and-trade -- could be on the way.
