The proposed deal according to ESPN.com
I am honestly tired of hearing Dwight's name and I want him to land somewhere asap. Now in regards to the Rockets, this is not the best deal for the franchise because they are simply rolling the dice. Dwight has no loyalty and he is very wishy washy and it is not guaranteed that he will return to the team after year one. Is Dwight worth giving up, Kevin Martin, Patrick Patterson, Marcus Morris, Chandler Parsons (who has a promising future, I must say), as well as the draft rights of Jeremy Lamb, Royce White, and Terrence Jones (2012 Rockets first round draft picks)?
Yes, Dwight is worth the chance, he is the one of the league's top centers (he's no Olajuwon though), but I can not trust his maturity level. If the Rockets can bring Howard in, roll out the red carpet and convince Howard to sign an extension then Morey is a genius...if not, Morey will be headed to monster.com. Since this is a developing story, I will keep you posted.
