Dwight Howard

  1. 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…

  2. Report: Magic, Timberwolves discuss deal involving Jason Richardson

    Mar 14, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The Magic have been much busier in the days leading up to the NBA’s trade deadline than they’d like to be, thanks to Dwight Howard‘s uncertain future in Orlando and the many teams interested in offering a collection of less talented players in exchange for the league’s best big man. But he’s not the only…

  3. 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…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Hope in Orlando… maybe

    Mar 14, 2012, 9:26 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard and Miami Heat forward LeBron James talk during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Orlando

    What you missed while suddenly caring about what happens to Western Kentucky’s basketball team…. Magic 104, Heat 98 (OT): Let’s not read too much into one game. I know Dwight Howard is talking about wanting to stay and contend with this team, but I’m not on board with them as contenders yet. That said, they…

  5. PBT Extra: Talking Dwight Howard, trade deadline fun

    Mar 14, 2012, 3:08 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Here it is — the first ever episode of ProBasketballTalk Extra. A couple of times a week from now until the Charlotte Bobcats hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy this June Tiffany Simons and I will talk NBA news. We not so coincidentally started this just days before the trade deadline when things move fast —…

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

    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…

  7. Dwight Howard says he wants to stay, finish season with Magic

    Mar 13, 2012, 11:55 PM EDT

    Magic center Howard walks off the Magic's home basketball court after their NBA game against the Heat in Orlando

    Do the Orlando Magic feel like gambling? After the Orlando Magic came up with a dramatic 104-98 win over the Miami Heat, Dwight Howard said he wants to play the rest of the season with Orlando. Not sign an extension and stay — he wants the Orlando Magic to “roll the dice” on him. Here…

  8. Warriors reach deal to send Ellis to Bucks for Bogut, Jackson

    Mar 13, 2012, 9:03 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis, Chris Singleton

    What happened to the Golden State franchise that would only trade Monta Ellis to Orlando if they got Dwight Howard back? This isn’t that. In the first of the deadline trades this year, Golden State will send Ellis, Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown to the Milwaukee Bucks for Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson. Adrian Wojnarowski…

  9. Report: Brandon Jennings won’t be traded

    Mar 13, 2012, 8:28 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 7

    As Thursday’s NBA trade deadline looms, there are certain players who can expect to hear conflicting reports as to what’s really going on with their status. Dwight Howard, based on his own actions, is certainly at the top of that list. Brandon Jennings, however, wasn’t expecting to hear his name at all. But as several…

  10. Stan Van Gundy has had it with the Dwight Howard rumors

    Mar 13, 2012, 7:16 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Stan Van Gundy knows the Orlando Magic have a huge problem on their hands. No, not the one you’re thinking of. He’s thinking of tonight’s game against the Miami Heat. And in his pregame press conference the Magic coach was on fire about all the rumors — like the one that Howard was told if…

  11. Report: Bulls trying to engage Lakers in Pau Gasol trade talks

    Mar 13, 2012, 5:45 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol of Spain fights for a rebound with Boston Celtics' Paul Pierce during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The feeling among Bulls fans is they have a good team — one built for the regular season but one that cannot get by the Heat in the playoffs. Not as the teams stand now. I don’t think the gap between the two teams (when healthy) is that great, but the Heat do look the…

  12. 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…

  13. Winderman: Why Orlando has to trade Dwight Howard

    Mar 13, 2012, 3:17 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    That’s a pretty impressive piece of trivia that Stan Van Gundy is about to be attached to, if you believe the scuttlebutt: the first NBA head coach to be fired by both Shaquille O’Neal and Dwight Howard (if you accepted the speculation back in December 2005 with the Heat). But if we actually decide to…

  14. Report: Warriors owner kills Monta Ellis to Orlando

    Mar 13, 2012, 1:07 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Do the Orlando Magic want to acquire Monta Ellis in a desperate effort to prove to Dwight Howard how they want to keep him and put real talent around him? You bet they do. But it takes two teams to make a trade, and reports out of the Bay Area have consistently said they would…

  15. Frustrated Derrick Rose criticizes referees, fine coming soon

    Mar 13, 2012, 10:55 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Chicago Bulls

    Derrick Rose is a smart man, he knew as he was ripping the referees after the Bulls win over the Knicks Monday night that a fine would be forthcoming. But the man with the new big contract with the Bulls — not to mention a new big deal with Adidas — seemed to think the…

  16. Magic may want to land Ellis, but trade complicated, unlikely

    Mar 13, 2012, 10:33 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis, Chris Singleton

    It looks more and more like the Orlando Magic are going to go with the Jerry West philosophy and call Dwight Howard’s bluff — go ahead and leave us and that guaranteed $30 million on the table. (Which is not really $30 million, really, but we’ll get to that.) What’s more, they are trying to…

  17. Why won’t Orlando trade Howard? He killed the market.

    Mar 12, 2012, 6:21 PM EDT

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

    Here’s a little different spin from the standard “the Magic aren’t going to trade Dwight Howard because they want to keep him” take: The Magic couldn’t trade him if they wanted because Howard never gave up his power over the situation. Here it is, from Ken Berger at CBSSports.com. “The player holds all the cards,”…

  18. Report: Magic working on three-team deal to get Monta Ellis

    Mar 12, 2012, 5:37 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    I am starting this post off with a disclaimer: Take this actual report with a grain of salt. It is a long, long way from reality. I bring you this more as a way of discussing the mindset in Orlando. A report from Real GM (via IamaGM) has the Orlando Magic working hard on a…

  19. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls, Heat own top two spots. Again.

    Mar 12, 2012, 2:38 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The trade deadline could really shake up the power rankings… but probably not. 1. Bulls (34-9, last week ranked number 1). The Bulls keep winning while they are banged up — Joakim Noah is back Monday for the Knicks but Luol Deng and Richard Hamilton are out. Those wins are really impressive. But the big…

  20. Report: Brandon Jennings on the trade block “for right price”

    Mar 12, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 1

    All you fans trying to dream up trade scenarios where your team can land a star point guard by just trading away a rack of shootaround basketballs — or Luke Walton — we have another name to consider. Brandon Jennings. They are rethinking everything in Milwaukee and injured center Andrew Bogut was already on the…

  21. Report: Howard likes Clippers, Heat. Please make this stop.

    Mar 12, 2012, 1:05 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Another day, another report that the Orlando Magic are leaning heavily toward keeping Dwight Howard in their camp and trying to convince him to stay. This time it’s in a series of tweets of from Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated we hear that Dwight is staying and that he still has no interest in going…

  22. Lakers, Celtics talk then kill Gasol for Rondo; LA still looking

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo have both traveled a similar path this season. Both were offered up in a trade for Chris Paul, and when that didn’t work out they became the names fans of the Lakers and Celtics talked about shopping. For their part, both teams said they wanted to keep the guy publically,…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: What kind of team are the Knicks?

    Mar 12, 2012, 4:07 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    What you missed while thinking if you are going to have two wives you may want to get off Facebook…. Lakers 97, Celtics 94: This rematch of a couple recent finals — which looked like those finals if you squinted really hard — was our game of the day. Sixers 106, Knicks 94: How this…

  24. Dwight Howard just wants to win. Which is why he’s refusing Chicago, still. Obviously. Because that makes sense.

    Mar 11, 2012, 9:40 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Derrick Rose

    Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the Magic finally have a team they’re willing to trade with, who wants Dwight Howard. One problem, he doesn’t. Howard has long said that all that matters to him is winning. That that’s what’s important. Which is made clearly by the fact he doesn’t want to go to… Chicago?…

  25. Winderman: The “Take my Turkoglu, please” trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu

    The shame of the NBA trading deadline is that it does not follow the post-Christmas “Boxing Day” tradition of Canada and other countries, where you spend the day after sorting out the junk from the actual gifts. In the NBA, it remains an all-in-one process, which is why, in this space over the past few…
