Dwight Howard is sending signals he's coming to the Rockets. Is that a good thing or not?

Houston Rockets fans are in premature euphoria over the rumors by Marc Stein on ESPN about Dwight Howard. The word is that their team has received "hopeful signals" that the premier big man in free agency wants to join their up-and-coming squad.

That all depends on how you look at things. Because, like anything else, there are pros and cons to consider regarding Howard joining the Rockets.
