“It was tough to see how everything that we worked for and everything that we built up, it seemed like people took that for granted,” said Dwight Howard, whose Houston Rockets (1-3) host the Magic (1-3) tonight at 8 p.m. ET at Houston’s Toyota Center. “It didn’t end well and all of that fell back on my shoulders, which is fine.

“I just know that I did a lot of great things for the city by putting my heart out there every single night and I put my body on the line to help the city and the team grow,’’ Howard said. “But things happen. But I like what they are doing down there now and I really think (General Manager) Rob (Hennigan) is doing a great job.”

“They’ve got a lot of young guys now who can really play the game and they’re only going to get better. I’m happy for them that they’re coming back,’’ Howard said following the Rockets’ morning shoot-around practice on Wednesday. “Young guys like [Nikola] Vucevic, [Victor] Oladipo, [Evan] Fournier – they’ve got a lot of guys who can really basketball. It’s nice to see them coming back.”

Then there are the other members of the Best Five. [Gordon] Hayward won’t be opting out of his contract unless he has a long-term extension in place, which will be hard for a 30-year-old with a concerning injury history. Indiana is still home for the Haywards, and with Victor Oladipo looking to move on this offseason, according to sources, and Myles Turner possibly in the same boat, there could be an opportunity for Ainge to move Hayward and the abundance of draft picks in his war chest in a mutually agreeable way. Boston won’t have cap space again with three stars locked up long-term, so moving Hayward or Marcus Smart presents one of the few opportunities to get back a player making starter-caliber money.
