Three Magic players tell Y! Sports (2 to @SpearsNBAYahoo) and one to me that Dwight Howard did not tell them he was opting in for next year.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) March 14, 2012
Wojnarowski continued to expound on what took place in the next couple of Tweets, stating that one Magic player in the Howard meeting told Yahoo!, "Next year was not even mentioned in meeting...He told us he was "all-in" for this season."
