A person familiar with the details says the Houston Rockets have been informed that Dwight Howard will sign with them.

The All-Star center is leaving Los Angeles after one season, the Lakers confirmed Friday night.

In a statement, general manager Mitch Kupchak says, ``We wish him the best of luck on the remainder of his NBA career.''

The person told The Associated Press that the next stop would be Houston. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Howard hasn't made his plans public.

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.
