Magic to Dwight Howard: ‘Sign extension or else’
The Magic are apparently digging their feet in and giving Dwight Howard a true ultimatum (Maybe). Sign an extension with the Magic or else… But what exactly does or else mean?
Magic CEO, Alex Martins had this to say regarding Howard.
“If he decides not to sign an extension, then we’re going to make decisions necessary so we don’t go through a season like we went through this year.”
Martins is addressing the back-and-forth circus that the Magic, Dwight Howard and their fans endured all season.
Martins was asked if the Magic intended to trade Howard is he rejects the idea of signing an extension. Martins replied with.
“We’ll cross that bridge when we get there but our number one goal is to get him to sign an extension this summer.”
Only one thing remains sure to me. The Magic must do whatever it takes to avoid completely tossing away another season due to drama. The Magic need to move forward in a positive direction, with or without Dwight Howard as their anchor. Whether this means trading away their all-star center for veteran help or assets to build with for the future.
