Dwight Howard will sign contract on July 10, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

Dwight Howard will travel to multiple teams to discuss his future when he becomes a free agent but won't drag out his decision.

Dwight Howard's contract with the Los Angeles Lakers expires on July 1, and while he is expected to consider multiple options outside of L.A., he won't drag out his decision. The first day that Howard can sign a contract is July 10 and a source close to him expects he will sign his contract on that day, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPN.

The Dwightmare isn't expected to last long no matter the resolution, which is a good thing for the Lakers as they will have to adjust their plans with or without the big man.

Thursday morning it was reported that Howard is "unlikely" to re-sign with the Lakers. The report indicates that he does not want to play in Mike D'Antoni's "system" and did not enjoy playing with Kobe Bryant (though he would be open to playing with Bryant in a "different" system).

Howard is expected to meet with the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks.
