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, sources confirmed to ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard.
Howard’s reversal, first reported by RealGM.com, came early Thursday morning. But the Magic told Howard to go home and sleep on it before making a decision, sources told Broussard.
The reversal came hours after a Wednesday night conference call with team officials before Orlando’s game in San Antonio, when, after indications to the contrary earlier in the day, Howard firmly told the Magic he was not prepared to surrender the option in his contract that allows him to become a free agent at season’s end.
