Dwight Howard is not coming back to Houston.
He has signed a 3-Year, $70.5 Million deal to head back home to where it all began for him as a child in Atlanta. He is now a member of the Hawks. I have always enjoyed Dwight Howard here as a Houston Rocket. I don't have any animosity on Dwight and I wish him nothing but the best going home to Atlanta.
Now, on the other hand, no matter what Dwight decided to do, it was going to help the Rockets either way. If he would have come back, then we would have the most dominate big man in the NBA once again. If we didn't get him (and we didn't), then the Houston Rockets would have upwards of $45+ Million to spend on improving the team through free agency and trades (and this is just the money from Dwight's contract and the league-wide salary cap raise). Not to mention that they don't have D-Mo and Terrence Jones on contract. So, you can add about an extra $5 Million to that total. So, the Houston Rockets have at minimum $50 Million to rebuild the team, start over, and create the perfect roster that is going to bring that elusive NBA Championship back home to Houston.
