NBA Trade Rumors: Dwight Howard To Stay With Orlando Magic; New Jersey Nets, Portland Talking Gerald Wallace

Oh Dwight Howard, will you ever make up your mind?

After originally demanding a trade, Howard claimed he would stay with the Orlando Magic through next season. Then yesterday he went back on that saying he wouldn’t give up the opt-out clause in hi contract.

Well today, just hours before the NBA’s 3 p.m. trade deadline, Howard has reversed course again, claiming he will not opt-out of his contract and will return to Orlando next season.

Got all of that?

Dwight Howard To Stay With Orlando Magic

The Magic have now reversed course and instead of feverishly trying to trade the six-time All-Star they have shut down the red phone that accepts all Howard trade requests (note: I don’t really know if they have a red phone or not, I’m just assuming).

Howard plans to sign a waiver of the early termination option in his contract at some point Thursday, but until he and his agent actually sign the waiver, the Magic have no guarantee that he will. (Update: Howard has waived his early termination option).

One sign that Howard is probably staying is the fact that the New Jersey Nets have been told he will, in fact, be returning to the Magic. ESPN’s Ric Bucher reported that New Jersey has been informed of the situation and is reacting accordingly.

Yahoo! Adrian Wojnarowski says the Nets are now working the phones around the NBA in an attempt to land some talent that could convince point guard Deron Williams to return next season. They are currently engaged in talks with the Portland Trailblazers that could net them Gerald Wallace in exchange for Mehmet Okur, Shawne Williams and a protected first-round pick.

Howard’s decision to stay in Orlando could shake the foundation of the entire trade market.

  4. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
