Report: Dwight Howard open to returning to Magic
Could Dwight Howard reunite with the Orlando Magic? One report says yes.
Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher cited sources on Friday telling him that the Magic have been informed through backchannels that Howard would entertain a return to Orlando in free agency. Bucher also reported that Howard’s first choice would be to stay in Houston.
Howard was, of course, drafted by the Magic and played for them from 2004-2012, reaching the NBA Finals for the first and, to date, only time in his career in 2009.
According to Bucher, Howard is keeping his options open. That is no doubt true. He hasn’t even hit free agency yet and he’s been linked to the Knicks, and he supposedly almost went to the Milwaukee Bucks at the trade deadline.
