HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Dwight Howard is officially a member of the Houston Rockets and is looking forward to the “fresh start” being on his new team will bring.

The center was formally introduced in Houston on Saturday afternoon to the city of Houston and was greeted by some of the brightest stars and legends in the team’s History. Hall of Fame center Hakeem Olajuwon and Yao Ming were among those on hand to celebrate Howard’s signing and offered him congratulatory support and advice.

The Rockets which gave Howard a four-year deal worth about $88 million, joins the “Red Nation” with the likes of current players James Harden.

The Houston Rockets are the youngest team in the NBA but on that reached the playoffs for the first time since 2009.

A seven-time All-Star, seven-time All-NBA team selection, five-time All-Defensive member, and three-time Defensive Player of the Year, Howard has been ranked consistently as one of the best in the NBA in rebounds, blocks and field goal percentage. He is also known to pay the position of center but can reportedly play power forward.
