Ever since Dwight Howard demanded a trade from Orlando, the Magic have (understandably) been inundated with calls from around the League. And one of those teams poking around about the superstar center may be the Bulls, according to the Chicago Tribune: “As the Bulls remained poised to sign veteran shooting guard Richard Hamilton once his buyout from the Pistons becomes official, a bigger target emerged. Think really big. Think Dwight Howard. The Orlando Sentinel reported Magic general manager Otis Smith said Howard has made his trade request twice since Monday. Multiple outlets later reported Howard wants to be traded to the Nets, with the Lakers his alternate choice. However, Smith said that he would look at all 29 teams if the Magic choose to trade their franchise center. Sources said the Bulls, who can build a package around cap relief, young talent and attractive draft picks, will enter trade talks. A confidante of Howard’s, though, expressed hesitation he’d sign a long-term extension with a team beyond his preferred destinations.”
