Dwight Howard Trade Saga Takes Another Turn

The Dwight Howard trade saga that has lasted all season long and intensified over the past 48 hours as we approach the trade deadline took another turn early this morning when RealGM reported at 3:37 AM that Howard had told them that he was in fact planning on waiving his early termination option early Thursday morning. RealGM reports that Howard went on to apologize for the media circus that has surrounded his impending free agency and claim that his heart remains in Orlando. Amid swirling reports that Howard is considering firing his agent, RealGM reports that Howard also believes he has gotten bad advice.
