HOUSTON - After an earlier fiasco, Dwight Howard announced on his Twitter account that he chose the Houston Rockets.

The highly-sought after center posted on his account, "I've decided to become a member of the Houston Rockets. I feel its the best place for me and I am excited about joining the Rockets and I'm looking forward to a great season. I want to thank the fans in Los Angeles and wish them the best."
