Magic do not intend to chase Dwight Howard

Dwight Howard is a free agent this summer.

There are still Magic fans who have the crazy idea that Orlando will find a way to get Howard back and made the trade to clear the deck. That is the conspiracy theory.

Conspiracy theories are just that.

Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports the Magic have no intention of pursuing Howard in free agency this summer.

The Orlando Magic won’t attempt to convince Dwight Howard to rejoin their team when Howard becomes a free agent in July, an NBA source with knowledge of the Magic’s thinking told the Orlando Sentinel.

Magic officials are said to believe it’s too soon to try to bring back Howard after the acrimonious eight months between his Dec. 2011 trade request and the deal that sent him to the Los Angeles Lakers.

That settles that. No surprise.
