NEW: After a hilariously long day of decisions, indecisiveness and decisions again, Dwight Howard has finally decided to join the Houston Rockets. The Los Angeles Lakers have been informed of the decision, and their General Manager Mitch Kupchak already publicly commented about his departure. It's a done deal at this point. And in response, Omer Asik reportedly requested a trade.
