Tough Decision: Dwight Howard Meets With Lakers While Houston Rockets Express Serious Interest

Dwight Howard has met with the Houston Rockets in the first formal meeting in Los Angeles on Sunday night, but Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak made two unexpected pleas to the all-star player leading up to his second engagement with the Rockets.

The first meeting came on Saturday, where Kupchak and Howard discussed the future in Los Angeles and why he belongs in the star-studded town.

Kupchak made another visit on Sunday night, when he gave Howard a brief well-wishing just minutes before the Laker headed out for dinner with the Rockets’ representation.
