The Golden State Warriors will not meet with Dwight Howard in free agency, according to a source.

It had been previously reported that Howard would meet with the Warriors.

The only way the Warriors could acquire Howard is via sign-and-trade, which the Los Angeles Lakers have repeatedly said they will have no interest in.

The Lakers, Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks are the only three teams considered to be serious suitors for Howard. The Atlanta Hawks will receive a meeting with Howard, but it appears it will only be as a courtesy.
