Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard may be set to become a free agent and several teams are already in line.

CBS Sports reported Monday that the Clippers are not in the running.

Howard's snub of the other Los Angeles team has led to speculation about what he is looking for. If he's not interested in the type of ball the Clippers play, he may be interested in a team like the Houston Rockets.

Howard becomes an unrestricted free agent in six weeks, and a report from the Houston Chronicle said Howard has a strong interest in the Rockets.

The Rockets would have room to sign Howard, as the team has a few non-guaranteed contracts and several tradable players.

But Howard does not have plans to commit just yet. He is reportedly considering the Dallas Mavericks and Brooklyn Nets as well, and has not ruled out re-signing with the Lakers, who would likely offer him the highest-paying contract.
