Free-agent center Dwight Howard reportedly he has made his decision about where he will play next season and could possibly announce his decision via Twitter, according to the Orange County Register.

The report made no indication of when Howard was set to make a decision.

Howard met with five teams this past week--the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks, the Golden State Warriors and the Los Angeles Lakers, who all gave various pitches as to why Howard should join their team next season.

The Warriors were reportedly still trying clear cap space to sign Howard.

A max deal for Howard would be five years, worth $118 million if he stays with the Lakers. If he signs anywhere else, the deal would be four years, $87.6 million.
