Yahoo Sports reports the terms of the Rockets' deal with Dwight Howard he's set to sign on Sunday, July 10. It's a lot of money. But there's bad news. For us. Not him.
Dwight Howard's four-year, $88 million maximum contract agreement with the Houston Rockets will include an early termination option after the 2015-16 season and a 15 percent trade kicker, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
That's right. In three years, Dwight Howard can become a free agent. We could do this whole thing again in four years. And then you realize that with the opt out, he could start threatening to leave Houston the year before. So really July 1, 2015 is when the nonsense could start.
Howard will be 30 then, and you'd assume he wouldn't want to risk his standing, having a history including a major back injury. But this is Dwight. We can't be sure.
$22 million is still enough that with Houston's state income tax situation he'll come close to recouping quite a bit of what he would have gotten with the Lakers, but not completely. The fact remains, Howard took less money to leave the Lakers, a move unheard of in the NBA.
