Dwight Howard rumor: Rockets discussed television opportunities with Dwight

Harry How

The Lakers wont be the only team to discuss the potential for Dwight Howard to have a chance to be on TV more.

When Dwight Howard met the Houston Rockets on July 1 the Rockets discussed the possibility of Howard having his own television programming on Comcast SportsNet Houston, reports Dave McMenamin of ESPN.

Full details of the meeting between Houston and Howard can be found here.

The Los Angeles Lakers will bring Time Warner executives to their pitch to Howard on Tuesday and will discuss their own opportunities to expand and grow their programming with Howard.

The league will not take issue with the extracurricular discussions as long as a television show is outright offered and there is no additional compensation for Howard, according to McMenamin.

Time Warner signed a 20 year, $3 billion agreement with the Lakers for exclusive rights to broadcast Lakers games that are not exclusive to ABC, ESPN or TNT. The Time Warner Cable SportsNet channel launched on October 1 and features coverage of the Lakers before and after games, as well as partner shows revolving around the franchise.
