HoopsWorld's Steve Kyler, with an assist from Larry Coon, tries to dis-spell various "myths" about Dwight Howard's options, before and after the trade deadline.
He looks at how much Howard would really leave on the table as a free agent; when is the optimum time for him to leave Orlando; even how much taxes he would have to pay (and whether there is that much of a disparity).
Bottom line for Kyler is "no one, including the Orlando Magic, has the details entirely right. It’s becoming clear that the Orlando Magic may not have as firm a grasp on their situation as they believe. Either that or they are deliberately putting out false information which wouldn’t be a stretch either."
