Dwight Howard to the Rockets may not yet be a done deal, according to a new report from ESPN.

UPDATE: Howard Going To Houston

After is appeared he was heading to Houston, later on Friday, Howard was said to be giving additional thought to staying with the Lakers because of max-contract restrictions – which allows his former team, L.A., to offer an additional year and more money – to the tune of an extra $30 million, reports ESPNLosAngeles.com.

I know what you’re thinking, so I’ll just say it, ‘Houston, we have a problem.’

“It’s hard to walk away from $30 million,” a source close to Howard told ESPNLosAngeles.com. “Harder than we thought.”

The Lakers can give Howard a five-year deal worth $118 million while Houston and all other teams can only offer $88 million over four years. No deal officially can be signed until Wednesday, when the league lifts its annual moratorium on player business.

Howard said he’d mull the offers a bit more, saying his decision would come late Friday night or Saturday morning, the report said.
