Larry King tweeted that Dwight Howard was ready to traded to the Nets -- until he changed his mind.
“You read it here. Dwight Howard had agreed to be traded to the Nets, but had a last minute change of heart and stayed with the Magic,” King tweeted from his verified @kingsthings account on Wednesday.
“My source is reliable. If Dwight wants to comment, I can't tell Dwight what to say,” the famous TV reporter later tweeted Thursday.

But don’t worry, the “Dwightmare” isn’t over just yet. After all, he’s going to be a free agent at the end of next season.
And you know what that means: if the Nets are competitive in Brooklyn and have assets to spare, you better believe the D-12-to-the-Nets talk with heat up quickly.
