Dwight Howard Was Once ‘Promised’ He Was Being Traded to the Brooklyn Nets


The “Dwightmare” is now over, so we hate to bring up old, painful news, but this is pretty interesting—while the seven-time All-Star was trying to figure out his future back in 2012, Howard claims he was “promised” that he was headed to Brooklyn. As we now know, Orlando’s deal with the Nets fell apart, and the rest is history. Via BasketballInsiders.com

In the summer of 2012, reports emerged that Howard requested a trade from the Magic. Unlike midseason when he didn’t know what would happen, Howard believed his next move was clear.

“I thought the Brooklyn thing was going to come through at the end of the season,” Howard said of a potential trade to the Nets. “It was something that was promised, but it didn’t happen. Once it didn’t happen I figured everything happens for a reason. I just let it go. I was upset for a while, but I just let it go.”
