Once again this summer, the circus of where Dwight Howard will be playing basketball next season is upon us.
Most recently, there is a report that Howard is leaning strongly towards re-signing with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Hearing strongly that Howard will resign with the Lakers.

The Lakers can offer Howard the most years and money in a new contract. The entire city of LA has been pushing strong for Howard to stay in LA with large signs on the sides of buildings, including the Staples Center.
The Rockets, Warriors, Mavericks and Hawks are all reportedly in play for Howard, too.
Howard met with the Rockets Sunday night and has been meeting with the other teams so far this week, too.
Howard has come out and said that the team he wants to play for is the one with the best chance to win a title.
A year ago, the Lakers seemed like the team that fit that mold the best but not you could make a strong case that the Rockets and Warriors are in far better situations to win now.
Free agency just started this week. Howard would like to make a decision soon on where he is going to play next year but he will likely take a little more time to meet with every team.
