Howard signs waiver, to stay with Magic

According a tweet from ESPN's Chris Broussard, Dwight Howard has signed the waiver of his early termination option, meaning he will be under contract with the Magic for the 2012-13 season.

As was first reported by RealGM.com, Howard told the Magic late Wednesday night he intended on remaining with Orlando and wouldn't utilize his opportunity to opt-out of this current contract.

"Man, listen, you know my heart, my soul and everything I have is in Orlando," Howard told RealGM. "I just can't leave it behind."

Ainge: Never made any calls offering Rondo

Appearing on the Dennis and Callahan Show with Dale Arnold and Kirk Minihane Thursday morning, Danny Ainge said that there is a "50-50" chance the Celtics make a deal before the 3 p.m. trade deadline Thursday afternoon, but nothing on a large-scale appears close. (To listen to the entire interview, click here.)

"I think it's 50-50. It may be a small deal. It may be not as exciting as what people may expect," he said. "But we're working hard. We'll work hard the rest of the day until 3 o'clock."

"I have no desire to move anybody on our team," Ainge said earlier in the interview. "I have to look and so far I have nothing. We don't have anything that we're really excited about right now. If somebody steps up and ups their offer today, who knows what might happen by the trade...

Report: Howard won't concede FA option

According to ESPN.com, Magic center Dwight Howard won't concede his option to become a free agent this summer, making a deal prior to Thursday's 3 p.m. NBA trade deadline more likely. The report states that Howard "firmly told" Orlando in a conference call late Wednesday night that he had no intention of surrendering the opportunity to become a free agent starting on July 1.

Sources told ESPN.com that New Jersey have had the most serious discussions with the Magic regarding Howard to this point. The report also goes on to say that Houston is also interested in trading for the All-Star if it can get an assurance that Howard would sign a new deal. Marc Stein also writes that teams such as the Lakers and Chicago are reluctant to jump into any deal due to the belief Howard is intent on joining New Jersey via free agency (if he isn't already traded to the Nets.)

Mashup: Shaq agrees to fight Canseco

Shaquille O'Neal responded to Jose Canseco's challenge to fight in a mixed martial arts bout by saying he's ready to rumble.
"I challenged him a long time ago," said O'Neal, who retired from the Celtics last year. "If he wants it done he knows where to find me."

Canseco, 47, had attempted to start a comeback to baseball, but he was banned from his Mexican League team after declining to take a doping test.

Said the 40-year-old O'Neal: "He can be high off whatever, and I'll be high off Frosted Flakes."

Read more about that story and others -- including a report that Dwyane Wade's father was ejected from Wednesday's Heat-Bulls game for his use of vulgarity -- at Thursday's Morning Mashup.

Rivers: 'Our team is really close right now'

OAKLAND -- With a 105-103 win against Golden State on Wednesday, the Celtics have now won eight of their last 10 games and coach Doc Rivers believes they are finally coming together.

"A lot of things are going on. Number one our team is really close right now. You can feel the spirit," Rivers said. "They knew they were struggling. Early [in the year] they would have been upset with each other. You could see one guy mess up and play and everyone had resolve. They just got over it instead of getting on guys."

Rivers noted that Paul Pierce accepted blame for a botched possession late in the game that led to a forced jump shot. But given another chance, Pierce made the pass to kick it to an open Kevin Garnett for the game-winner.

"He was the criminal in that one, but he came in and said, 'Hey my fault guys. That’s basically why I gave him the ball back at the end," Rivers said. "Usually when you make a...
