    Why is everyone trying to take credit for Howard? He signed an extension in Orlando to avoid Houston after this supposed Cato recruitment.

    Clutchfans knows who deserves the real credit

    Yeah, no one knows better than him that we "take care" of our big men. Still give props to Cato though for trying to recruit for us.

    One good preseason game lands you a 6 yr, $42 million contract in Houston. Don't get much better than that.

    This is the best thing Cato has done since his triple double in that one preseason game.

    We have an MLE still right? Resign him. 7 years, full MLE with escalation. Worst case scenario, we'll trade him to the Knicks.

    I find it absolutely hilarious that after all that media scrutiny, sensationalism, or whatever you want to call it about Dwight over the last two years, that ultimately Kelvin Cato was the deciding factor in all of this.

    Ok, I know that's not what the article said but it's funny to think that something that simple influenced his decision after all the talk last summer
