Houston we have liftoff http://t.co/2gFaZs1W3J— Dwight Howard (@DwightHoward) July 6, 2013
Lakers teammates Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and other representatives met with Howard on Tuesday. But their efforts -- and Friday's last-ditch meeting -- were eventually not enough to keep the big man in LA for more than one season.
The Warriors also had high hopes of landing Howard after meeting with him on Monday. But multiple reports on Friday stated he would not be joining Golden State. However, the team did reportedly reach a four-year, $48 million deal with swingman Andre Iguodala.
