Dwight Howard is headed to the Houston Rockets, according to multiple media sources.

According to ESPN's Chris Broussard, Howard's camp has informed the other four teams pursuing the free-agent center will not be signing with them.

Howard has told the Los Angeles Lakers that he will not be re-signing in L.A., a league source told Broussard. A Lakers spokesman denied they have been told of Howard's intentions.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban confirmed the Mavs are fully out of contention for Howard.

The Golden State Warriors and Atlanta Hawks also have been told they are out of the running for Howard, a source told ESPNLosAngeles.com.

USA Today earlier reported Howard's final decision to join the Rockets. 

Rockets general manager Daryl Morey wrote on Twitter that they have yet to be contacted by Howard, and that no deal is in place.

Makes sense that Howard moves from LA. He didn't match the offense or put another way, the LA coach didn't shape the offense to maximize Howard's strengths. Good luck to him as he seems to be a good guy who just wants to play well and have fun while doing it.

Geez LA couldn't even do a sign and trade. They get nothing for losing Howard.
