The All-Star center posted a message on Twitter on Friday night saying he thought Houston was ``the best place for me.''

``I am excited about joining the Rockets and I'm looking forward to a great season,'' he added.

The Lakers confirmed earlier Friday that Howard would be leaving after one season.

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

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.
