Enough people are talking about it now on twitter...

I have no idea how credible he is...he's a local news reporter. Never heard of him though.


@cbruey
My source has just told me that Dwight told the team he is going to opt in for the final year of his contract. @wftvsports


@cbruey
Now have it from multiple sources that he told his teammates that he will opt in for the final year of his contract but has not filed papers


I held off making this thread...but I couldn't. Speculation is fun!

ORLANDO, Fla. — A source with the Orlando Magic told WFTV's Christian Bruey that Dwight Howard plans to stay with the team through the 2012-13 season.

Howard has the option to opt out of the final year of his contract and become a free agent this summer.
Howard told the team of his plans during a meeting in San Antonio on Wednesday afternoon. The source, who was in the meeting, said Howard will opt in for the final year of his contract so long as the Magic do not trade him.

Howard asked for a trade before the season but after the Magic beat the Miami Heat on Tuesday night.

Howard told the media he has asked the team to let him stay with the team through the end of this season.
"Well, I told those guys, I've been telling them for the past two or three weeks now that I want to stay and finish the season," Howard said. "I told them I feel we have a great opportunity to win and I told them that I want to be here and I want to bring a championship here. I told them they've got to give me that chance. They didn't trade me at the beginning of the season and I told them I'd go out and play as hard as I could every night to put our team in a position to win."

Dwight Howard had 24 points and 25 rebounds, Jameer Nelson scored 25 points, including 12 in the fourth quarter and overtime, and the Orlando Magic came back to beat the Miami Heat 104-98 Tuesday night.
It was the eighth 20-20 game of the season for Howard and the 40th of his career.

The Magic overcame a 14-point, first-half deficit to win their third straight and fifth in six games.
Dwyane Wade scored 28 points and Chris Bosh 23 for the Heat, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. LeBron James added 19 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists.



Same source, but in written form.

Local news has NOT been the most accurate in Orlando the past few years.

But again until it's on Woj's twitter feed or on ESPN.com...I'm not getting my hopes up.

Nothing really funny with that. Magic can certainly compete, and maybe Howard see's this. While they may be a tier below, they are certainly close, and a couple of moves away from being on the same tier as Heat/Bulls.

I'm just worried as to how credible these local news people are, doesn't seem like they have many sources, but, they do cover the Magic and all, would make sense if they were the first ones to get the news.

03-14-2012, 03:58 PM
Doesn't make sense to me. Why hold off on signing your next long-term deal when he can opt-out and still resign with the Magic for the max? Do you really think he's going to stay for one more year just to see if Otis can put together a big team and have to deal with all this drama all over again?

Just my opinion. Doesn't mean I think he's leaving, just doesn't make sense.

Agreed. He knows that we were really close on getting Monta, stupid Lacob messed it up though. :mad:

Still, I''ll wait for this to become official before I get my hopes up, these last few days has been a roller coaster for Magic fans.

Jameer, JJ and potentially Hedo can expire after next season. They really don't have any expirings this year.

Has anyone thought about the possibility that he said this so that the Magic do not trade him, and then he actually will opt out. He hasn't filed any papers yet and that is what the Magic want. He could very easily be trying to mess with them so they really think he will stay. Until he signs those papers, this is just another rumor to me that somehow is being used as leverage for someone.

He hasn't even told management yet and has to put pen to paper. This has horrible rumor written all over it.

Yahoo has the quote from Dwight.

“Well, I told those guys, I’ve been telling them for the past two or three weeks now that I want to stay and finish the season,” Howard said. “I told them I feel we have a great opportunity to win and I told them that I want to be here and I want to bring a championship here. I told them they’ve got to give me that chance. They didn’t trade me at the beginning of the season and I told them I’d go out and play as hard as I could every night to put our team in a position to win.” - Dwight Howard


He's pulling his trade request for this season, he wants to be there and try to bring a chip to Orlando. Haven't heard this one before.

So happy he is staying in Orlando. Nets fans can say bye bye to DWill

I'm pretty sure their management has some type of Plan B in case a situation like this played out. Unless D-Will explicitly says he wants out, I doubt the Nets deal him. Nets have always said they were pretty confident they could keep him even if they didn't get Howard. We'll see what goes down in the next 24 hours.

Yahoo has the quote from Dwight.

“Well, I told those guys, I’ve been telling them for the past two or three weeks now that I want to stay and finish the season,” Howard said. “I told them I feel we have a great opportunity to win and I told them that I want to be here and I want to bring a championship here. I told them they’ve got to give me that chance. They didn’t trade me at the beginning of the season and I told them I’d go out and play as hard as I could every night to put our team in a position to win.” - Dwight Howard

So nothing about opting in, hes just saying he wants to finish the season with the team.. Im so confused.

However, a person briefed on the conversation told @CBSSports that Howard told a Magic official today he would sign the ETO waiver.


The ETO waiver -- meaning Howard wouldn't opt out of his deal for next season -- is in Howard's possession in San Antonio, the person said.

And some of you are so damn hypocritical it actually bothers me. You here a rumor, that has not been confirmed, he hasn't signed anything yet. When there were rumors Dwight was about to be traded, so many of you said "oh this is just some rumor but it means nothing blah blah blah". When he signs the waiver then that is one thing... but please stop saying he is staying for sure this is one of a million rumors that has been thrown around. And knowhere in his quote did he even mention next year...

They don't get much help.

Jameer, JJ and potentially Hedo can expire after next season. They really don't have any expirings this year.

Hmmm, I just took a quick look and saw similar things. Not much chance Hedo declines that option, though, right?

If they can move some stuff for expirings, though, they could aim to have cap room in 2013. They don't need to have guys in place to keep him - just enough 2013 room to sign some promising help at the same time they sign him, Miami style.
That offseason Monta could opt out, J Smith is unrestricted, CP3 unrestricted, Millsap unrestricted, Jefferson unrestricted, etc.

All assuming he opts in for next season, of course.

Is Dwight Howard Staying or Going?

There's conflicting information Wednesday about Dwight Howard's intentions.

First, multiple reports indicated that that Dwight Howard has told his Magic teammates --and some in the Magic organizaton-- that he will not exercise his early termination option and stay in Orlando another year before becoming a free agent. However, the Magic have yet to receive any agreement to stay in writing.

Then later, Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc J. Spears reported that while Howard told his teammates he was all in on this year's efforts to win a championship --and told each of them what he needed from them-- "he did not tell them he was opting in for next year." Woj and Spears spoke with three players in the meeting and one told them, ""Next year was not even mentioned in meeting...He told us he was 'all-in' for this season."

Similarly, Ken Berger tweeted, "Some came away thinking Howard said he was 'all in' for the rest of the season, while others thought he meant next season, sources say."

This written commitment is apparently what the Magic need before suspending efforts to trade Howard prior to Thursday's 3 p.m. ET deadline. The document would need to be signed by Howard and his agent, Dan Fegan.

Either he signs the paper tonight, or the Magic trade him. I feel bad for the Nets right now. If he waits till the 11th hour and signs that paper, there is an excellent chance they end up losing D-Will for nothing

He just doesn't wanna be booed and look like a prick like Lebron did. He's a lot like Lebron the way he cares sooooooo much about what ppl say about him. His *** just doesn't wanna get booed if he leaves and returns to play agaiinst the Magic

Dwill has said in December there was a 90% chance he would re-sign with the Nets WITHOUT Dwight. Makes no sense to deal him.

Of course he did this is just him trying to save face. If it was between him and his wife why delete it.

For him to publicly say "If we dont get Dwight, Im bailing." Would look terrible on him. These players all have their egos and want to protect their images. The fact that he only said 90% means that if he bails at seasons end he can just be like "It was so hard for me to leave." Even if in reality, he did not want to stay.

Just saying, I dont take a thing any of these people say too seriously until the Ink is dry

Steve Kyler is in love with Dwight, he's getting annoying with this Dwight love fest. Should just unfollow him, huh? :p

He is just saying this IMO, because whatever team he would be getting traded to this year, wouldn't have as much a chance as the Magic do at winning this year. Let the diva continue talking.

Since when is PR important to NBA stars? Have you been living under a rock? These dudes don't give a damn about fans or the team. But I have a better reason why said it.The NETS have the wealthiest owner, a brand new arena and a big market and he can be the face of it.

Chris Mannix: Magic continuing to explore Dwight Howard deals, league sources tell SI. No indication anything DH has said today changing that. Twitter

Let the trade talk continue... Magic still looking at deals for Howard according to Mannix

how funny would it be if dwight said none of this and the rest of the magic team was trying to put dwight in a bad position by having to make him tell everybody that he never said this.

OF Course they do if Dwight at ANY point came out PUBLICLY and said

"there is a 90% chance I will be back in ORLANDO"

NONE of this would be going on and they wouldn't be getting lowballed in trade offers like they have.

I have no idea. :laugh:

Seems like he either made no promise about next year, or that the next step is signing the papers. More waiting either way. Game's 2 hours away so maybe the focus on that has killed the drama/rumors/discussion.
