Dwight Howard Wanted More Say in Orlando’s Trades

by July 19, 2011

Dwight Howard tells 790 The Zone in Atlanta that he would’ve liked to be involved in the moves the Orlando Magic front-office made last season. From SRI: “How did you feel about the all the trades made last season to try to improve the Magic? ‘I wanted to be more part of the process a little more. I had to step out on the court and I wanted to make sure that the people I played with wanted to go out and play hard every night. My only issue was the fact that I didn’t really have a chance to be involved, but I think with the guys that we brought in we still have an excellent chance of winning, but we all have to be on the same page. I do miss a lot of the guys we traded. You know Marcin Gortat…I think he was very key since last season. Also Mickael Pietrus and Rashard Lewis and also Vince [Carter]. All of these guys are very key in our success and to see them go on the personal side it hurt, but I understand the NBA is a business and we have to keep going.'”
