If you are Dwight Howard looking at this from a distance, you see what happened to your friend Chris Paul and the potential of NBA teams colluded against players that would force them to lose millions of dollars, I can see why he is trying to get the hell out of Orlando ASAP.
It isn’t a coincidence this report comes out immediately after David Stern nixed the Chris Paul Trade.
Dwight Howard is preparing to ask the Orlando Magic to trade him to the New Jersey Nets, according to sources close to the situation.
Howard’s representatives have told the Nets that they are his preferred destination.
Howard has yet to tell the Magic he will not re-sign with them after this season, but the sources said he will within the next few days, perhaps as early as Friday. There is also a chance that Howard will not attend the opening of training camp Friday, according to a source.
Howard’s preferred destination is really the Lakers, but as we can see Antoine Dodson aka Dan Gilbert is not going to allow that.
Stay tune for further details.
