I really hope Dwight signs with Houston because it's just a perfect fit for him. They have a great big man coach who can teach Dwight some moves (he also said that he's gonna visit Hakeem Olajuwon again who lives in Houston and can help him year-round), they have a similar inside-out system that Orlando had great success with (except Houston has a lot of young talent and Orlando had mostly older guys), James Harden would be a perfect sidekick (very talented but loves to give up the ball), and he's already friends with Parsons.Rockets' Chandler Parsons says he is actively texting Dwight Howard every day

In an interview with the Houston Chronicle, Parsons, the Rockets power forward, said he's constantly texting and talking with Lakers free agent C Dwight Howard about coming to Houston.
?After watching that last night,? Parsons said, ?I hit him with, ?Come to Houston. That could be us.'????
That wasn't anything new for Howard. He has heard plenty from Parsons this offseason.
?I talk to Dwight every day,? Parsons said. ?I've created a relationship with him, where I feel like we're very close. He hits me up about everything. I've covered pretty much every question he's had. I basically tell him, ?We have a chance to be really good without you next year. We're going to have a good season. Why not come and join us, join our core guys who are for sure to be here and make us great, make us contend for a championship?'
?That's the main point I've gotten from talking to him. He wants to win. He wants to win rings. It's obvious there is no better fit, no better team or opportunity to do that than with us.?
