Dwight Howard says he is signing with the Houston Rockets.
The All-Star center posted a message on Twitter on Friday night saying he thought Houston was "the best place for me."
"I am excited about joining the Rockets and I'm looking forward to a great season," he added.
The Lakers confirmed earlier Friday that Howard would be leaving after one season.
"We wish him the best of luck on the remainder of his NBA career," general manager Mitch Kupchak said in a statement.
USA Today first reported earlier Friday that Howard would join the Rockets, where he would join All-Star James Harden to give the Rockets a potentially potent inside-outside combination.
Dallas, Golden State and Atlanta were the other suitors interested in Howard.
