DWIGHT HOWARD participated in his first practice with the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday in El Segundo, Calif., going through a lengthy workout with no apparent concerns about his surgically repaired back. Howard worked out with the Lakers' new starting five during much of the afternoon practice at the Lakers' training complex, running offensive drills with Steve Nash and playing a little one-on-one against Pau Gasol. After finishing up the workout with drills in the Lakers' new Princeton-inflected offense, he got a few quick pointers from Kobe Bryant.

AFTER 20 MONTHS of twists and turns in the Dwight Howard saga, including some in the eleventh hour, he has decided to join the Houston Rockets. USA Today first reported the deal yesterday, citing a person close to the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity because his decision had not been announced. ESPN later reported that he returned to Los Angeles and was "50-50" on staying with the Lakers vs. leaving for Houston. But the Lakers tweeted last night, "We have been informed of Dwight's decision to not return to the Lakers.

Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, and other representatives of the team met Tuesday for about two hours with free agent center Dwight Howard to make their pitch for keeping him in Los Angeles. Howard became one of the NBA's most coveted free agents when free agency opened Monday. The Lakers have made no secret they want to keep him. The Houston Rockets, the Dallas Mavericks, and the Atlanta Hawks also are interested. Howard's first, and perhaps only, season in Los Angeles was a disappointment, ending in a first-round playoff sweep, and he acknowledged being unhappy at times.

CHARLES BARKLEY has an opinion on just about everything. And, apparently, a short memory. On Monday, Barkley appeared on the "Dan Patrick Show" and said that Lakers center Dwight Howard should tell off meddlesome teammate Kobe Bryant. Bryant has said on several occasions that Howard should stop complaining about playing with a shoulder injury. "He should have already told Kobe Bryant to shut the hell up by now, or [tell him he's going to] kick his ass" Barkley said. "He should have done that by now because, as a man, there's only so many times you can call me out publicly.

ORLANDO - Were the 76ers involved in the Dwight Howard saga? Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports said so. The respected NBA writer reported Friday afternoon that the Golden State Warriors were in trade talks with the Sixers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Utah Jazz for what he termed a "complicated deal for salary dumps. " The Sixers had no comment Friday while practicing for the Orlando Pro Summer League, which runs Sunday through Friday. The spokesman said the team has a policy of not commenting on rumors.

The Orlando Magic demonstrate the importance of having an inside and outside game. The 76ers aren't known for their performance in either of those areas. Combining the best of both worlds, the Magic produced a 115-99 win over the Sixers last night at Amway Arena. Orlando (35-22) is never bashful about chucking three-pointers. The Magic shot 15 for 33 from beyond the arc; the Sixers went 3 for 13. "When you're scoring the ball in the half-court set, you have to be able to shoot the ball, you have to get dribble penetration," Sixers coach Maurice Cheeks said.

The 76ers are showing interest in signing free agent guard Chris Duhon, Yahoo Sports reported. According to the report, the New York Knicks are also interested in the guard who played two seasons with them from 2008 to 2010, where he set a team single-game record for assists with 22. The former McDonald's all-American and Duke guard was selected by the Chicago Bulls in the second round of the 2004 NBA draft and spent four seasons with the team....

As expected, the 76ers lost to the undermanned Houston Rockets on Monday night. The 104-93 setback at the Wells Fargo Center dropped them to 0-4. It marks the first time they opened with four straight losses since the 2010-11 season. But again, that was expected. Nerlens Noel's performance against Dwight Howard was not. Aside from grabbing just one rebound, the rookie had a solid performance against arguably the NBA's best center. Noel finished with 10 points, a game-high six steals, five assists, and a block.

NEW ORLEANS - The 76ers' development of Nerlens Noel is far different from the measures taken by the New Orleans Pelicans when Anthony Davis was a rookie. Noel has squared off against some of the NBA elite post players in Dwight Howard, Marc Gasol and Roy Hibbert. The 6-foot-11, 217-pound rookie also averaged 30.1 minutes heading into Monday's 99-74 loss to Pelicans at the Smoothie King Center. He logged 35 or more minutes six times. The Pelicans tried to limit Davis' minutes during his rookie campaign in 2012-13.

TALK BEFORE last night's 76ers-Houston game was that the Rockets might give Dwight Howard the night off with a sore right knee and with a back-to-back looming tonight in Miami. Sixers coach Brett Brown wanted none of it. "You'd be lying if you said you wanted to keep playing against NBA All-Stars," he said. "I think that from time to time, with the group that we have, it's not a terrible thing. If you made me say something, I want to play against the best. I want our guys playing against the best.

HOUSTON - Remember when the 76ers started the season 3-0 and had wins over the Miami Heat and the Chicago Bulls? Talk about distant memories. The good days seem so long ago for the Sixers and now they might change the record books in their next game after their losing streak reached 26 games last night at the Toyota Center against the Houston Rockets. This one ended 120-98 and tied them with the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers for the most consecutive losses in league history.

WASHINGTON - It didn't seem like so long ago that Jameer Nelson was entering the NBA, fresh off a Saint Joseph's career that will live on forever through his records and the team's accomplishments. It was 10 seasons ago when Nelson was starting that final year on Hawk Hill. It was so long ago that he is now starting to reflect on everything that happened during that time when even fantasies seemed to come true. Seated in the lobby of the Georgetown Four Seasons yesterday afternoon, Nelson, who just recently started his 500th game for the Orlando Magic, chatted about how his NBA life has come full circle.

Last offseason, the Houston Rockets were an afterthought, a young team with little star power. Now, after trading for James Harden just before this past season and adding Dwight Howard on Friday, Houston is suddenly primed to contend sooner than almost anybody expected. Still, Houston general manager Daryl Morey knows nabbing Howard is only the first step in a long process for his team. "We haven't accomplished anything yet, but we're putting something pretty cool together, I think," Morey said in an interview with Comcast SportsNet Houston.

Dwight Howard is leaving the Los Angeles Lakers and is headed to the Houston Rockets, the free-agent center said on Friday. Howard announced his decision on Twitter after various media outlets had already reported it. "I feel its the best place for me and I am excited about joining the Rockets and I'm looking forward to a great season," Howard tweeted. Howard's camp had informed the other four teams pursuing him that the all-star will not be signing with them, the earlier reports said, leaving only the Rockets.
