At least one Orlando Magic reporter believes that the team will not make a move to trade Dwight Howard today. Try to follow me here:
Jarrod Rudolph of Real GM tweeted just a few minutes ago that the Brooklyn Nets are “very close” to getting Dwight Howard. Rudolph is saying his sources told him the deal could be completed “very soon.”
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Ryan Anderson will likely not re-sign with the Orlando Magic, but will be moved in a sign-and-trade. Wojnarowski didn’t specify which team Anderson would be traded to. We told you via the Sacramento Bee last Monday that Anderson met with the Sacramento Kings over lunch, then toured their practice facility.
The cool thing to do these days is to create a fake Twitter account claiming to be someone important — Adam Schefter, the bear from ‘Ted,’ Chuck Norris, CNN, and ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith. The fake Stephen A. Smith — @stephenasmifh (Stephen A’s real account is @StephenASmith) — has now fooled Twitter for the third time, including ESPN personality Andrew Brandt.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was arrested over night after an altercation involving police at a Houston nightclub. Peterson has been charged with resisting arrest after not leaving the club when directed to.
According to Pro Football Talk, Peterson — and other club-goers — was asked to leave the club, but he wanted to get some water before leaving. As Peterson was making his way towards the exit an officer then attempted to take him down by jumping on his back. Other officers then got involved and made the arrest. Peterson was released from jail on $1,000 bond.
Being that I work for a radio station, 102 JAMZ, NBA All Star Weekend was a pain in my ass with all the work I had to do that weekend, and not getting any sleep. And while it didn’t do good for the sanity of myself and my co-workers, it did GREAT things for Central Florida, more specifically Orange County.
Our boy David Pingalore from Local 6 is back to breaking news, or something to that effect. He is reporting that the Orlando Magic’s head coaching search was narrowed down to two candidates after learning that information from his notorious sources. Ping is reporting that the list was narrowed down to “the San Antonio Spurs number one assistant Mike Budenholzer,” and Maurice Cheeks.
A source told Ping that Budenholzer is considered the front-runner.
However, since Ping’s report, a more credible source has emerged with information that negates Ping’s latest report. Joshua Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel tweeted shortly after Ping’s report:
Cincinnati Bengals cornerback and former TNA Wrestling tag team champion, Adam “Pacman” Jones, volunteered to speak to the incoming NFL rookies at the NFL Rookie Symposium. While Pacman spoke with the rookies he told a story that even blew Terrell Owens, who was also there to speak to the rookies, mind.
