Adrian Wojnarowski, in his first article on the Dwightmare in a while, reports that while the Magic wait on Dwight Howard, they're NOT talking with the Nets.

Yes, the Nets are still Howard’s desired destination, but GM Billy King still hasn’t had a substantive conversation with [Otis] Smith lately. Orlando has made it clear to everyone that it’s a buyer to find help for Howard, not a seller.

"They’re going to reach a dead end here," Woj quotes one rival executive as saying. "It’s just a matter of time." But when? Not anytime soon, thinks Woj, quoting Alex Martins, Magic CEO and the man who's in charge of keeping Howard in Orlando.

'We have to use as much possible time as can we before making a final decision,' Martins said. Perhaps that time is March 15, perhaps it’s the end of the season. Eventually, there’s a moment of truth coming for the Magic and Howard. For now, they’re still trying to be buyers. They’re desperately trying to hold onto him. For now, Dwight Howard still plays for the Magic.
