NBA Trade Rumors: Orlando Magic-Dwight Howard Saga Continues

Dwight Howard’s future plans are a lot like in weather here in Dallas, changing at a moment’s notice in often annoying and unpredictable ways.

Here is the latest rumor floating around the ever-evolving Magic-Howard saga:

Dwight will agree to stay in Orlando, but he wants at least one weekend day per month at Disney World designated “Dwight Howard Day” when no other guests are let in but local Orlandoans and other NBA superstars, with Stan Van Gundy wearing Mickey Mouse ears and operating Space Mountain.

Okay, just kidding. For now.

Orlando Magic-Dwight Howard Saga Continues

All joking aside, via CBS’ Ken Berger, the following happened today with Howard, who had a much-publicized team meeting during which he ostensibly pledged his desire to stay in Orlando:

Players who came out of meeting called by Howard today in San Antonio have given conflicting accounts about what Howard said, sources say.

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.

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.

Howard, however, has not yet returned the document signed, which the Magic need to protect their interests, the person said.

Howard’s agent, Dan Fegan, who has not responded to requests for comment, also has to sign the ETO waiver for it to be valid.

This stream of tweets came about ten minutes ago, at 3:35 CT.

So apparently some teammates think Dwight made a long-term commitment, some think it’s just for this season, and he needs to sign an ETO waiver for any of it to mean a hill of beans, which he hasn’t yet done but hopefully he’ll do soon because the trade deadline is tomorrow and Orlando would like to know what it’s working with in case the franchise, you know, wants to trade its greatest asset before the deadline to get something of value.

And all of this comes on the same day the Carmelodrama reached its nadir in New York, leading to Mike D’Antoni stepping down, and when even less-prominent stars like Raymond Felton and Jamal Crawford can lead mutinies.

I’m so glad the NCAA Tournament is here.

Thanks for reading this mind-numbing post about this mind-numbing yet important sports story. For your troubles, here is a video of Stan Van Gundy dribbling better than I bet you figured he still could.
