Dwight Howard is leaving the Lakers.
LEWISTON, ID - It seems like it's always a soap opera when it comes to Dwight Howard, but the big man has finally made a decision on his next destination.

Dwight Howard said he is signing with the Houston Rockets. The all-star center posted a message on twitter Friday night saying he thought Houston was "the best place for me."

The Lakers confirmed earlier Friday that Howard would be leaving after one season. USA Today first reported earlier Friday that Howard would join the Rockets, where he would join all-star James Harden to give the Rockets a potentially potent inside-outside combination. Dallas, golden state and Atlanta were the other suitors interested in Howard.
