Report: Dwight Howard Close to Extension with Orlando

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

According to Dime Magazine, Dwight Howard may be close to signing an extension with the Orlando Magic. This comes as bad news to Laker fans, who have been campaigning for Howard to join Los Angeles since the Lakers’ untimely exit from this year’s playoffs.

Rumor has it the extension is ready and only needs Howard’s signature to make it official. The deal would keep Howard in an Orlando uniform for four more seasons.

There is still a chance that Howard leaves Orlando, and much of that depends on the organizations ability to build a championship caliber team around him. After trying to do so this past season by adding players like Gilbert Arenas, the Magic have made it clear they want Howard to stay and they want to win with him in Orlando. Whether or not they can satisfy Howard with the pieces they have is yet to be seen.

    Go ahead & sign your extension Dwight! You’ll feel bad that you did when you see the Lakers win another title next season. And the Magic getting knocked out of the playoffs in the 1st round every year for as long as your with them. Its either this year with the Lakes or not at all.

    I think that the Lakers should put more focus on developing and retaining players, rather than always looking to hijack players from elsewhere. We draft good players that wind up helping other teams.
    It makes sense to get a free agent here and there , but we can’t use that as a model. Look at the Knicks who have specialized in that see where they are

    D12 dog lol dont do it plz don’t u want a ring COME TO LA

  • Scotty

    Getting Gilbert Arenas was such a bad idea.  Why pay soooooooo much money for a back up point guard?!  Thats not nearly enough to keep Dwight happy.

    We don’t need Howard ,we need someone to replace Blake and help,fisher. Lakers gave the mavericks a free pass for a championship. I still don’t understand, how we lost after seeing the lakers demolish them the last game of the season, and winning the season series.

      I totally agree. We don’t NEED Dwight; we NEED a good point guard and we need a good shooting guard to help Kobe. Hopefully the two rookies can help. PJ didn’t believe in playing rookies, I wonder where Blake Griffin, D-Rose; John Wall and a few more would be if PJ had been their coach.

        I 2nd that. We need a good penetrating guard who can finish and run pick&roll with Bynum and Gasol. Steve Blake and Matt Barnes need to step up and hit those wide open jumps shots in order to open up the middle. If they can’t do it then we need to bring in somebody who can. Maybe the the two rookies they brought in can help in that department. We know they’ll get some playing time now that Phil is gone. You think we could’ve used Sasha in the playoffs? Just kidding.

      • oldmanflow

        I 2nd that. We need a good penetrating PG who can finish at the rim and also run pick and roll with Bynum and Gasol. We definitely could use some outside shooting to help open up the middle. Maybe the two rookies they picked up can help out in both of these departments.
