Orlando Magic ask free agent Dwight Howard to meet at the old, abandoned warehouse and to come alone
Dwight Howard is the biggest name on the NBA free agent market and one of his former teams is reportedly making a strong push to meet with him.

According to Howard's agent, the big man received a note today from the Orlando Magic written with letters cut out from magazines and newspapers. In it, Howard was asked to meet at midnight at "the old abandoned, warehouse on the outskirts of town" and to "come alone."

"They seemed pretty serious," said Dan Fegan, Howard's agent. "I definitely think it's something Dwight should consider. Especially because the last line said: 'Be there. Or else.'"

Despite once being the face of the franchise in Orlando, Howard's eight years there didn't end well and he forced his way out via trade after the 2012 season. But team owner Rich DeVos says there is no lingering bitterness.

"Far from it," he said, hammering nails through the end of a two-by-four. "I just don't like where we left things, that's all," he added, using his homemade weapon to smash a watermelon.
