Report: Orlando Magic Listening to All Dwight Howard Trade Offers

by December 30, 2011

According to the Orlando Sentinel, the Magic have opened up their phone lines and email inboxes to all NBA teams willing to discuss a trade for Dwight Howard: “The Magic are talking to more teams than the ones on Dwight Howard’s wish list. They will listen to anybody who is willing to take a risk and give up a few good men for Howard if he can lead them to the NBA Finals as a temp. It’s another reason why they will wait until the March 15 deadline to make a deal for Howard, after he’s played 44 games in Orlando. His new team would land him for 22 games, plus the postseason. Far-fetched? Absolutely. Sounds more like a means to put pressure on the teams that Howard has approved (Nets, Mavericks, Lakers). But the Magic think some teams might take a flyer, hoping they can convince Howard to re-sign with them.”
