NBA Store Puts Dwight Howard Nets Jersey On Sale: At the NBA's trade deadline, Dwight Howard has reportedly decided to opt out of his contract early and test free agency after the season, a move that puts the Orlando Magic at risk of losing another dominant big man and getting nothing in return unless they deal him now. On Tuesday, the NBA Store briefly posted for sale a Dwight Howard New Jersey Nets T-shirt. "The player's number is subject to change," the description states, "and will not ship until the official number is issued." Confusingly, the website RealGM reported that Howard told them last night he was not going to opt out and would stay with the Magic through next season. Kelly Dwyer of Yahoo thinks Howard is trying to prevent a trade because he "doesn't want to cost the Nets assets that he'd prefer to play alongside."
