Dwight Howard trade

  1. Report: Four-team Howard deal close… unless it is not

    Aug 9, 2012, 7:56 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    The Dwight Howard Tilt-A-Whirl started spinning again today and we all just want to get off. According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard a complex four-team deal to ship Dwight Howard to the Lakers is “close.” A four-team trade that would send Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers is “very close” to happening and could be…

  2. Report: Four-team trade involving Howard to Lakers, Iguodala trade being discussed

    Aug 9, 2012, 4:10 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    UPDATE 4:10 pm: Here’s a bit of an update on this complex blockbuster four-team Dwight Howard trade that illustrates how complex and potentially unlikely it is. From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo: Orlando’s Jason Richardson has been significant name in 4-way talks too, sources tell Y! There’s a scenario where he goes with Howard to LA.…

  3. Report: Lakers willing to offer Bynum, World Peace for Howard, if he will stay in L.A.

    Jul 3, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard still has some leverage over in where he gets traded. Not because the Magic give a rat’s a** what he wants, if they could trade him to a team from Siberia in the Russian league they would do it. Rather it’s because he can walk away as a free agent next summer from…

  4. Report: Magic, Nets in talks to send Dwight Howard to Brooklyn

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:25 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Twenty-four hours ago it looked like the Nets were moving on from Dwight Howard, but things change fast in free agency. I say change fast because a version of this deal wasn’t good enough for Orlando at last year’s trade deadline and even recently we heard the sides were far apart, but suddenly everything has…

  5. Joe Johnson trade to Nets nearly complete, Brooklyn out of Dwight Howard chase

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Nets seem to be thinking about having an interesting team to open the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn with next season, the years beyond that be damned. And Dwight Howard be damned. He has said Brooklyn is the place he wants to be but when this trade for Joe Johnson goes through they would be…

  6. Report: Houston can trade for Dwight Howard but he’s not staying

    Jun 26, 2012, 1:46 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    And we’re back to this stupid cycle again… Dwight Howard and his camp are trying to exert control over where he gets traded. It was reported  the Houston Rockets were trying to take some big steps to land Howard — trading their two first round picks (No. 14 and No. 16) and some players to…

  7. Report: Magic to make decision on new GM by end of week

    May 29, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    First comes the new general manager. Then comes the decision on Dwight Howard. The first part of that decision could come by the end of the week, reports magicbasketballonline.com. A source close to the decision making process within the Orlando Magic organization has informed me that the team is close, and likely to name their…

  8. Report: Magic to start shopping Dwight Howard before draft

    May 24, 2012, 9:23 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    It sounds more and more like Orlando’s ownership and upper management, after spending a year trying to convince Dwight Howard to stay, are done. They want him, he can sign on and stay, but they are done catering to his whims. Well, now that Stan Van Gundy is gone. Orlando will start listening to offers…

  9. With no deals close, Suns likely to keep Nash (and everyone else) past trade deadline

    Mar 14, 2012, 10:21 PM EDT

    Suns guard Nash looks to drive on Mavericks center Mahinmi during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    When it comes to teams dealing with superstar players who can become unrestricted free agents at the end of this season, the Suns are essentially the polar opposite of the Magic. While Dwight Howard has tortured the franchise by changing his mind nearly every four minutes about what his intentions are, in Phoenix, Steve Nash…

  10. Report: Magic decide to trade Howard if he doesn’t commit

    Mar 14, 2012, 2:06 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Maybe Orlando Magic owner Rich DeVos is realizing what everyone else has understood for a while — that no matter what he said, Dwight Howard was out of there this summer. And the Magic don’t want to come up empty handed when that happens. Orlando wants Howard to, at the very least, opt in for…

  11. Magic officials “disgusted” by Howard as they talk to Lakers, Knicks

    Mar 14, 2012, 11:29 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    The Orlando Magic ownership — and that is who ultimately makes this call — is still deciding what to do. Dwight Howard wants the Orlando Magic to “roll the dice” on him and keep him through the end of the season. It’s all about winning, he said. Don’t think this is about keeping his options…

  12. Dwight Howard New Jersey Nets t-shirt was briefly available in NBA’s online store

    Mar 14, 2012, 12:17 AM EDT

    SafariScreenSnapz011

    Are you into conspiracy theories and NBA basketball? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Late Tuesday night, a link began circulating on Twitter to a page on the NBA’s online store that would allow you to buy a New Jersey Nets t-shirt, as if Dwight Howard — of the Orlando Magic currently, but…

  13. Dwight Howard update: Magic want to talk to Lakers, Howard wants Nets

    Mar 13, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    There are two sides to where things stand with Dwight Howard less than 48 hours before the NBA trade deadline. One is what the Magic are doing and thinking. The other is what Howard wants. What the Magic are doing is having GM Otis Smith keep fielding offers and look for deals while ownership decides…

  14. Why the bottleneck on NBA trades? Calendar and Howard.

    Feb 13, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    We’re a couple months into the NBA season, and there have been very few trades. Before the season we had some biggies — Chris Paul to the Lakers, er, Clippers — but once the season started, that has dried up. And you can expect things to stay pretty much dry past the All-Star game at…

  15. Magic owner: “I don’t want to trade (Dwight Howard)”

    Feb 9, 2012, 2:12 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    If you have wondered why trade talks around Dwight Howard have stalled out, here is your answer. Orlando owner Rich DeVos, age 85, surprisingly met with members of the media before the Magic took on the Heat, as reported by Chris Sheridan at Sheridan Hoops: “I don’t want to trade him,” DeVos declared to reporters.…

  16. Magic GM: Dwight Howard’s trade list remains unchanged

    Feb 1, 2012, 9:07 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    There are no Chicago Bulls on the list. No Los Angeles Clippers, no Boston Celtics or Golden State Warriors. While other teams keep trying to fill the Dwight Howard trade rumor void, Howard’s original list has not changed, Orlando GM Otis Smith told the Sun Sentinel. Magic General Manager Otis Smith told the Orlando Sentinel…

  17. Dwight Howard blasts teammates for lack of effort after blowout loss to Hornets

    Jan 28, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    The wheels are starting to come off in Orlando. Just one night after blowing a 27-point lead at home in a loss to the Celtics, the Magic pulled a complete no-show in New Orleans, and were blown out 93-67 by a Hornets team that entered the game just 3-15 on the season. That effort (or…

  18. Dwight Howard trade still in neutral

    Jan 9, 2012, 11:07 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Omer Asik

    I’d be surprised if Dwight Howard is traded before the All-Star game the last weekend of February. That is if he gets moved at all — Howard said he may not to Yahoo Sports. “I don’t think they are going to do anything right now because we’re winning,” Howard said after a 104-97 victory over…

  19. Report: Warriors “aggressive” suitor to rent Dwight Howard

    Jan 5, 2012, 5:42 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Dwight Howard gave the Magic a list of places where he would sign an extension (New Jersey, Dallas, the Los Angeles Lakers). The Magic said they would listen to offers from teams willing to “rent” Howard for this season without the guarantee he would opt in for another year at least (as Chris Paul did)…

  20. Report: Magic want veterans, not to rebuild after Howard

    Dec 28, 2011, 8:08 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Right now, the Dwight Howard soap opera is on hiatus. The Magic have stopped all trade talk and are focusing on this season and convincing Howard to stay in Orlando. I’m pretty sure opening day did not help their cause. In the least. Eventually Orlando is going to have to trade Howard. His demand is…

  21. Video: Jameer Nelson talks Magic, Dwight Howard

    Dec 21, 2011, 1:16 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Dwight Howard and his trade demands over the Magic like the cloud over Joe Btfsplk. That said, we are talking about a 52-win team last season. A team undergoing a lot of changes — Glen Davis is in for Brandon Bass — but still a team you ignore at your own peril. Magic point guard…

  22. Suns successful in avoiding media circus around Nash’s impending free agency

    Dec 18, 2011, 12:04 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    The Suns held their annual media day on Friday, and overall, things were pretty quiet. Too quiet, even. Especially when you consider that the face of the franchise, heart and soul of the team, and two-time MVP Steve Nash is playing in the final year of his contract, and will be an unrestricted free agent…

  23. NBA Season Preview: Orlando Magic

    Dec 15, 2011, 12:42 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Last season: 52-30, fourth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Lost a close first-round series to the Atlanta Hawks in six games. Head Coach: Stan Van Gundy, if he can manage to not go insane while continually asked about the Dwight Howard situation all season. Key Departures: None … yet. (OK, not entirely true.) Gilbert…

  24. Report: Magic might decide to trade Howard before season

    Dec 2, 2011, 8:06 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith said he wants to sit down with Dwight Howard and see where his head is. Prudent move. But what if Howard says his head is wanting out of Orlando? If Howard tells the Magic he is gone, then he might be gone really soon, tweets Marc Stein at ESPN.…
