The Rockets met with All-Star free agent Dwight Howard on Sunday night in Los Angeles at the start of NBA free agency. By all accounts, the meeting went well for Houston. (That is to say, Houston thought it went well.) GM Daryl Morey, coach Kevin McHale, forwards James Harden and Chandler Parsons were in attendance, according to reports, along with Hall of Fame legends Clyde Drexler and Hakeem Olajuwon; the latter has worked with Howard for years in the offseason.

Interestingly, the Houston Chronicle reports most of Howard's questions were about basketball and his fit with Houston. Specifically, the Chronicle says Howard wanted to know if and how the Rockets were poised to add another max-contract free agent this summer to go alongside himself and Harden.
