ORLANDO, Fla. — It appears Magic center Dwight Howard is going to be on the roster when Orlando opens its season Christmas night at Oklahoma City.
Whether he stays there throughout the season is a big question for the Magic in 2011-12.
Orlando has made some moderate efforts in the lockout-shortened free agency period to give Howard some help. It added big man Glen "Big Baby" Davis and also managed to re-sign shooting guard Jason Richardson, who promises to be more assertive than he was a year ago when he arrived via a trade from Phoenix.
Forward Hedo Turkoglu also says he thinks this will be a turnaround season for him.
Whether it's all enough for Orlando to duplicate its NBA finals run from 2009 remains to be seen.
