Dwight free agency: Mike D'Antoni, Steve Nash discuss Lakers meeting with Howard

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Mike D'Antoni and Steve Nash revealed few details on the Lakers meeting with Dwight Howard.

The Los Angeles Lakers have concluded their meeting with free agent Dwight Howard. The Lakers were the fifth and final team -- at the franchise's request -- to make a presentation to him. The meeting lasted less than two hours.

Mike D'Antoni and Steve Nash were the first two to exit and were swarmed by reporters for information regarding the visit. D'Antoni said little, but stated, "Dwight will make his decision. You keep your fingers crossed.", according to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News.

Nash believes the meeting was "productive" and said the group discussed the 2012-2013 season and how it could be built on, reports Shelburne. Nash also told reporters that Howard did not indicate when he would make his decision, according to Medina.

The first day that he can officially sign a contract with a team is July 10 and reports have pointed to Howard making a quick decision rather than dragging out the process.

Howard did not speak with reporters after the meeting but did state he had "a lot of great meetings". Now, the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks, Golden State Warriors and Lakers await his decision.
