The Dwight Howard saga continues with the Orlando Magic remaining reluctant to trade the superstar center without the right package of players or draft picks. After Howard let it be known that he has no intention of staying in Orlando and still wants to be a traded after a meeting with GM Rob Hennigan recently, the clock is ticking on a deal that might send Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers or Brooklyn Nets.
In the meantime, NBA Commissioner David Stern chimed in on the ongoing trade rumors surrounding the league’s best center. Apparently, Stern believes that Howard’s agent, Dan Fegan, is the cause of the never-ending speculation about the potential blockbuster trade. Stern’s opinion is that Fegan might be leaking information to the media.
Stern may have a point here as NBA agents usually attempt to dictate where their clients might sign and for how much. Fegan stands to benefit greatly from Howard’s decision and ultimate trade. With endorsements also being a major factor after a trade and or signing, Fegan stands to cash in as well as Howard.
As of right now, the team that clearly has the best chance of landing Howard via trade is the Lakers. With the Lakers still adamant about acquiring Howard and having arguably the best trade asset with All-Star center Andrew Bynum; Los Angeles seems to be the most likely destination for the league’s best center.
Apparently, Howard is open to an immediate trade to the Lakers or a trade to the Nets in January. If those trades fail to come to fruition, as they have thus far, Howard will walk away via free agency after next season. Reports have surfaced that he’d look to sign with the Dallas Mavericks once an unrestricted free agent.
