Dwight Howard said he’s staying with the Orlando Magic on the National Basketball Association’s trade-deadline day, the league’s most dominant center passing up the chance to be a free agent after this season.
Dwight Howard is heading to Houston after one season with the Los Angeles Lakers, accepting a contract worth $30 million less to join a younger roster and become the latest in a line of Rockets big men that includes Hakeem Olajuwon, Dikembe Mutombo and Yao Ming.
Dwight Howard is still in Orlando as the National Basketball Association season prepares to tip off almost two months late. How long he stays there is among the league’s biggest questions, one month after a new labor agreement erased the chance there wouldn’t be a season at all.
Chris Paul and Dwight Howard are two of the biggest names in the National Basketball Association’s free agency class of 2013. One appears to be staying in Los Angeles and the other could be on the way out.
