Even though the Houston Rockets were given the first formal meeting with (Dwight) Howard in Los Angeles near the start of free agency Sunday night, Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak made two unexpected connections with Howard leading up to his much-anticipated round of meetings. The first came on Saturday, as the two discussed Howard’s future and why he belongs in Laker Land one last time before Kupchak’s competition came to town. Then Kupchak made a surprise visit on Sunday night, a brief well-wishing that came just minutes after the 9:01 p.m. PT buzzer sounded and before Howard headed out for dinner and a presentation with the Rockets. Two people with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports about the interactions. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the private nature of the talks.
