Dwight Howard 'reconsidering' decision, meeting with Lakers, according to report

Ronald Martinez

Dwight Howard has not finalized his decision and intends to meet with the Lakers tonight.

Dwight Howard is reconsidering his decision to sign with the Houston Rockets, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard. Just hours ago the reports indicated -- from multiple reporters -- that Howard had decided to join James Harden in Houston. Now, he's in Los Angeles and will be meeting Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak tonight.

Kupchak was unaware that Howard planned to meet with him and was "caught by surprise", according to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News.

Some things just write themselves.

There's no telling what the ultimate outcome will be, or what to believe at this point, but the official word on Howard's decision has yet to be told to either the Rockers or Lakers.

Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times has also confirmed that Howard's camp has informed the Lakers that his decision has not been made.

The extra $30 million and year that the Lakers can offer Howard is one of the factors that have Howard "50-50" on his decision between the teams. While the total Howard would be leaving on the table is less than $30 million after considering the tax relief he would gain from playing with the Rockets, it's still a significant sum to leave on the table.

No other factors in Howard's indecision have been reported.
