Dwight Howard tenure as Rockets center is not over, but it took the expected step in that direction.Howard’s representatives told Rockets general manager Daryl Morey on Tuesday afternoon that he would not pick up the option on a fourth season of his Rockets contract, worth roughly $23.3 million, to become an unrestricted free agent next month, a person with knowledge of the conversations said. The individual spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the talks.

Howard has not ruled out returning to the Rockets, according to the person familiar with his thinking, but considered returning with just one season on his contract to be irresponsible. Howard will look for a combination of the “environment” and “chance to win,” the individual said.

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jamal Crawford has declined his $4.5 million player option for next season and will become a free agent, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Crawford, a three-time Sixth Man of the Year, will become one of the top reserve scorers on the open market after facing Monday’s deadline to decide on his option.

In his 18th NBA season, Crawford averaged 10.3 points and 20.7 minutes in 80 contests, marking his 16th consecutive year that he scored in double figures per game. He joined the Timberwolves on a two-year contract last offseason and served as a veteran leader for the franchise’s first playoff season since 2004.
