Dwight Howard's vacillation on committing to the Magic for next season has reached an end. Kind of. Howard officially won't opt out of his contract next season, meaning that he'll have at least one more year in Orlando -- unless the Magic trade him anyway, that is. It's definitely a possibility -- they might decide to cut ties sooner rather than possibly later, as they may not feel Howard is totally committed to the team.
