Reports: Howard Expected to Sign ETO Waiver Thursday

Reports out of the Orlando media indicate that Dwight Howard will sign his early termination option waiver Friday. If true, it would end the Nets' pursuit of the All-Star center, four months after it began.

John Denton, the Magic's in-house beat reporter, and Orlando Sentinel columnist Mike Bianchi tweeted that Magic executives on hearing that Howard had once again changed his mind met the team plane as it returned to Orlando from San Antonio at 3 a.m..

Howard, according to reports, said he was willing to sign the documentation on the spot, but Magic executives advised him to "sleep on it." ESPN is reporting team executives and Howard met Thursday morning.

Jarrod Rudolph, who talked to Howard and reported his latest change of heart, tweeted, "I'm hearing Dwight will sign around 12:30 today. Get ready to go crazy at tomorrow's game. It's should be a mad house."
