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 himâ€”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.
