July 05, 2013|By Eric Pincus

Dwight Howard has yet to make his free-agent decision. One of the teams in the running is the Houston Rockets.

Early Friday morning, Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted a video plea to Howard.

The homemade video shows a number of kids says, "Dwight Howard, come to the Rockets."

Morey also brought in a Hollywood celebrity, Emmy winner Jim Parsons of "The Big Bang Theory" with a video trying to sway Howard.

In addition to the Lakers and Rockets -- the Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks and Atlanta Hawks hope to lure the All-Star center.

The Warriors have made efforts to shed salary to either sign Howard outright (currently they don't have the necessary cap room) or to find a suitable sign and trade that would appease the Lakers.

Of course Howard's decision comes first -- the big unknown that will have major ramifications league-wide.
