NBA rumors: Dwight Howard interested in Hawks, Warriors?

We haven't even reached the NBA Finals and a majority of the talk around the league is focused on a player whose team has been ousted from the postseason. It's evident that there will be another Dwight Howard circus this summer, and two more teams have been added to his list of potential suitors -- according to Mark Medina of The Press-Telegram -- the Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors.

A source familiar with Howard's thinking says he plans to test free agency and has considered the Lakers, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta and Golden State.
It's been clear since the NBA's trade deadline that the Los Angeles Lakers are interested in retaining Howard, and it's previously been reported that the big man is intrigued by the thought of joining the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets.

While the Lakers can offer Howard the most money considering he's their free agent, it's been reported that the center isn't happy with current coach Mike D'Antoni. There is a lot of time for things to change, but it doesn't appear to be an automatic that Howard re-signs with Los Angeles.

If he elects to sign elsewhere, it would appear that the Mavericks and Rockets have more of a chance than the Hawks or Warriors. Atlanta is Howard's hometown, but he hasn't expressed interest in signing with the team in the past. Meanwhile, Golden State doesn't appear to have the cap room necessary to ink Howard.
