Report: Dwight Howard Close to Extension with Orlando

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.
