Report: Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic Close To Two-Year Extension

According to David Pingalore with Click Orlando, Dwight Howard has spent his Memorial Day weekend finalizing the details of a two-year contract extension that would keep the center in Orlando until 2015.

It’s important to note that the deal is not “done.” The rumor is unconfirmed by any other source, and a friend in Orlando media has told me that Pingalore is “a joke” and often wrong about things, especially scoops like this.

Still, where there’s smoke, often there’s fire. Stay tuned…
