Chad takes a look at Dwight Howard’s move to the Houston Rockets. But was too much said too soon. AP reports a league spokesman confirms the team and its personnel were fined $150,000 by the NBA for comments made about the All-Star center during the moratorium period. Howard committed to leave the Los Angeles Lakers and join the Rockets on Friday, and Rockets general manager Daryl Morey gave an interview later that night with Comcast SportsNet Houston in which he talked about the recruitment and landing of him. Coach Kevin McHale also discussed Howard over the weekend at the Orlando Summer League.
Though free agency opened July 1, deals can’t become official until Wednesday, after the 2013-14 salary cap is set.
ESPN.com first reported the fine. That aside, Chad has his own opinion on Dwight, just before his vacation. Remember, Over and Under returns to your radio on its new home, August 1st on CBS Sports Radio 1140!
