With the collapse of a potential deal to send Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets, the next most logical landing spot for the three-time defensive player of the year is probably Houston. With the Los Angeles Lakers still in the mix, the Rockets are reportedly making a strong push for Howard and are even considering making Luis Scola an amnesty cut to clear enough cap room for the trade.
That's good, because according to Bomani Jones, Houston is the perfect fit for the Magic center.
Considering the way Howard has handled his trade demand and his inability to be a 'G' about trying to get Stan Van Gundy fired, I have to agree with Bomani that Brooklyn, New York would have been a terrible place for Howard.
