A four-year/$88 million contract with Houston doesn't mean another Dwightmare will not happen. In fact, the possibility of another Dwightmare is built into the contract.

The contract contains an early termination option for after the 2015-16 season. In other words, Dwight Howard may be in the free agent market again. He can either resign with the Rockets for a five-year deal or change teams. Additionally, Howard is guaranteed 15 percent of the money left in his contract if the Rockets decide to trade him—which would be surprising since they went so hard to get him in the first place.

Howard pretty much made sure he was a winner in this deal. Losing Kobe Bryant as a follower sucks, but it's a small loss.
