The driver's licence of Houston Rockets eight-time All-Star centre Dwight Howard has been suspended in Florida for his failure to pay a fine for running a red light, court records show. Howard, who played for the NBA's Orlando Magic from 2004 to 2012, racked up 10 tickets for running red lights while in the Orlando area. He also has on his Orlando court record four speeding tickets, 12 citations for failing to pay highway tolls and one for failing to change his address on his license, all civil traffic infractions. The 28-year-old, five-time NBA rebounding leader resolved all the traffic cases except for the last, a $285 fine for running a red light in April in Winter Park, Florida. Court records show his license has been suspended since at least Aug. 15. Toronto Sun

I believe in myself. I’m going to continue to work and motivate and just be a leader and do whatever I can to help this team win games and compete for a championship. I’m obviously flattered and humbled by the contract, but now it’s time to go out there and win games. NBA.com

Parsons went into restricted free agency this offseason after playing three years with the Rockets. The Mavericks signed him to a three-year offer sheet worth $45 million that Houston had the right to match. Parsons said the offer's size probably surprised the Rockets. "They pretty much told me, 'Go get the biggest deal and the best deal for you and we're matching,' " Parsons said after throwing out his first pitch. "At the end of the day it's a business and I have no hard feelings against them." Dallas Morning News
