Magic Expect Offers for Dwight Howard

Otis Smith expects trade offers for Dwight Howard next season, but Smith won’t trade him. The Magic GM spoke to the Orlando Sentinel‘s Brian Schmitz: “As hard as it is to believe, NBA teams have come to Otis Smith before with trade offers for Dwight Howard. So the Magic general manager is fully prepared to field more calls next season — potentially, Howard’s final season in Orlando. ‘To say it hasn’t happened before is crazy, so, yes, I expect it to happen,’ Smith told me Friday. ‘And the answer will be the same as it always is: No.'”
