Dwight Howard Staying?

More

From ESPN:


Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard has told the team he is ready to sign away the early termination option on his contract and remain through 2012-13, ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard confirmed...

Magic spokesman George Galante confirmed the conference call to The Associated Press on Wednesday night after ESPN.com, citing sources with knowledge of the call, reported that Howard and agent Dan Fegan clarified their position with Magic CEO Alex Martins, owner Rich DeVos and other members of the DeVos family on the line. 

But Howard told RealGM.com that he's having a hard time leaving Orlando, the only NBA city he's called home since entering the league out of high school. "Man, listen, you know my heart, my soul and everything I have is in Orlando. ... I just can't leave it behind," Howard told RealGM.com.

This could obviously change by the end of the day.
