“Sources say Dwight Howard is signing with the Harlem Globetrotters.”
—Dwight Howard to the Orlando Sentinel. Howard had been asked about the report the Los Angeles Clippers were on his trade destination list, Howard responded with a “no” and then his standard line about him being on the Magic right now and that is all that matters. Things like this and the fact the Magic are 10-3 give those fans hope they can keep him in town. Good luck with that. The Clippers are not likely as a landing spot only because a better deal than DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe, Mo Williams and a pick will come along, either at the deadline or this summer (and that’s the best the Clippers could do).
