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.”
