Shortly after 7 a.m. ET, Howard tweeted that he was going to remain a Laker, an announcement that Shams Charania and Bobby Marks appeared to confirm via his Twitter himself. But minutes later, Howard and Charania both deleted their tweets, with The Athletic NBA Insider posting an update on Howard’s situation It turns out that there was no deal in place for announce

The good news is that Howard has finally found a new home in free agency, but not the one he originally advertised

Free agent Dwight Howard has signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia 76ers, agent Charles Briscoe told @TheAthleticNBA @Stadium
