What does it all mean? Well, if you judge by actions and not words, you behold a Rockets team that certainly is acting as though it has secured a commitment from Howard. League sources say the Rockets are open to revisiting trade talks that would send Omer Asik to the Hawks in a sign-and-trade for Josh Smith, Howard's AAU teammate in Atlanta. Word among rival teams on Friday also was that Houston was considering a deal that would send Asik to New Orleans for Ryan Anderson, a 3-point sniper who was a strategic complement to Howard when the two were in Orlando. One league source, however, said the proposed Anderson deal wasn't progressing, and another pointed out that Howard and Anderson did not get along in Orlando. CBSSports.com

Zach Lowe: Re: reports of HOU interest in R. Anderson/Calderon: I'd be queasy after last season trusting D12 as 1-man defense. '11 Dwight? Maybe. Twitter @ZachLowe_NBA
