Not so fast, my friends. Just a few minutes after that it was announced that Dwight Howard will sign with the Houston Rockets, Howard’s agent has come forward to stop fans from popping their corks prematurely.
From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
Dwight Howard’s agent, Dan Fegan tells Y! Sports: “Dwight has not finalized his decision.”

Fegan added, “He hopes to finalize his decision tonight or tomorrow morning.”
The Los Angeles Lakers and Rockets are the only teams remaining in the Howard sweepstakes that have yet to receive a call from Howard telling them that they were no longer in the hunt. Golden State, Dallas and Atlanta have been ruled out.
Let’s let the wait continue:
