Mark Berman: Dwight Howard on hopes Josh Smith joins Rockets:"That'll be great. I would love to see him here. I think he would bring some more defense to our team. Unit together. It'd be great to have him here. He would do a lot of stuff for us on the defensive end. Blocking shots, rebounding, playing against those big 2-3 guards in the league. Having him would take a lot of pressure of some of our perimeter defenders. Twitter @MarkBermanFox26

Adrian Wojnarowski: Rockets tried to trade for Smith, but couldn't make the contracts match without losing Howard or Harden. Howard's strong advocate of Smith. Twitter @WojYahooNBA

As for where Smith might go next after he clears waivers (which is certainly expected), the Houston Rockets, Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks are among the most intriguing options. In addition to the fact that the Rockets talked at length with Smith in free agency two summers ago, Houston center Dwight Howard grew up with Smith in Atlanta and has had interest in playing with him in the past.
