AP source: Magic C Howard formally request trade
Question of the Day
ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) - Dwight Howard wants out of Orlando, putting one of the NBA’s most dominant big men on the block at the start of training camp.
The Magic center has formally requested a trade, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Saturday on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss Magic personnel moves.
Howard is eligible to opt out of his current contract in July 2012.
Howard denied an ESPN report that he met with Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov and general manager Billy King on Thursday in Miami without the Magic’s permission. It followed reports that Howard planned to request a trade to the Nets.
“Right now we’re in Orlando and we just had practice and that’s what matters,” Howard said. “Nothing else matters beyond today and at this moment.”
“At the end of the day our objective is to win a title and protect this franchise,” Smith said. “We’re gonna do whatever we have to do in order to do that. Our objective is to keep him in a uniform, however, if that’s not the case then we’ll move another direction. But our objective right now is to keep him in uniform.
“That’s not Bob’s job, that’s not Dan’s job, it’s not (chief executive officer) Alex’s (Martins) job. They want to assist me and at the end of the day I have to do what’s in the best interest of the Orlando Magic.”
