Three years after Dwight Howard signed with the Houston Rockets, the enigmatic center has reportedly agreed to terms on a three-year, $70.5 million deal to join the Atlanta Hawks.

Shams Charania of The Vertical first reported the deal, and Chris Broussard of ESPN confirmed the contract.

Howard declined his $23.2 million player option with the Rockets on June 21, and at that point it was clear the 30-year-old was interested in leaving Houston and pursuing a fresh start.

Of course, that didn’t come as a big surprise given the way his final season with the Rockets played out.

After Houston fired head coach Kevin McHale just 11 games into the 2015-16 campaign, the Rockets were plagued by chemistry woes that reportedly stemmed from Howard’s inability to jibe with fellow superstar James Harden, according to’s Calvin Watkins.

Howard was also evidently frustrated by a reduced role in Houston’s offense.

Coming off a 2014-15 season in which he averaged 15.8 points and 10.5 rebounds that culminated in a Rockets run to the Western Conference Finals, the big man’s numbers slipped as Houston moved its offense away from the post.
