Actually Dwight Howard, you can sign extension with Orlando Magic!

Orlando center Dwight Howard has been telling anybody who will listen lately there’s nothing he can do now about his contract situation. That’s wrong.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Yes, he can!

Dwight Howard is absolutely eligible to sign a two-year, $43 million dollar extension which would keep him in Orlando through 2014-15.

The massive five-man had been telling the media nothing can be done about his contractual situation –Howard can exercise an option and become a free agent in 2012.

This is incorrect, and a simple strategy to deflect rumors he’ll leave Orlando for a larger market –like say Los Angeles.

Thankfully, Magic Executive Otis Smith is already talking to his franchise face. After all, the longer this situation lingers, the greater the likelihood of Howard leaving.
