According to Rotoworld, Dwight Howard reportedly told the Magic during a meeting on Wednesday that he will opt-in for the final year of his contract, keeping him with the franchise through the 2012-13 season.
The meeting, which took place in San Antonio, is being reported by an Orlando news station in conjuction with the Associated Press. It's conceivable that Howard is being completely manipulative and will opt-out anyway, but it's more likely that he's giving Orlando more time to scour the league for the best possible trade. In the meantime, he and the Magic can attempt one more championship run -- they are currently 3rd in the Eastern Conference. He could still be shipped out in the next 24 hours, as he'll need to give the Magic some written proof of his intentions before they agree not to trade him.
