Dwight Howard's free-agent decision looms: Where will he go?

USA TODAY Sports

We lay out all the options for where Dwight Howard could land.

Dwight Howard may announce his decision in free agency on Friday, but there are no solid indications on which NBA franchise he will choose to sign with at this time. He has met with the Atlanta Hawks, Dallas Mavericks, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Lakers and listened to their best arguments for why he should sign a mega contract with each team.

This may be the most difficult decision of Howard's NBA career, and it will be scrutinized in most corners of the association regardless of what he decides, but SB Nation NBA has logged why each franchise is an attractive option for the talented big man.

Here are the feature pieces that lay out the best reasons for why he would be a good fit with each of the big suitors pursuing him:

Why Howard should go to the Houston Rockets
