Maybe a new coach, a new system and a new approach will change everything between the Orlando Magic and Dwight Howard. According to an ESPN report, the on-again, off-again trade talks between Magic general manager Rob Hennigan and multiple suitors are off -- for now -- and the franchise could sit tight with the five-time All-NBA center until the trade deadline in February. Hennigan and the next Magic coach, likely to be announced this week, are planning to meet with Howard in Los Angeles before determining the next phase of their team-building plan. The Magic were well down the road in discussions with the Brooklyn Nets earlier this month but the deal broke down. Howard said he prefers to play for the Nets, but agent Dan Fegan denied that Howard plans to sign a contract until next summer when he can become an unrestricted free agent. The Magic have fielded other offers, including recent strong overtures from the Lakers and Rockets, but might prove to get better returns by h...

Can the Dwight Howard talks get any more theatrical? Right when rumors were being spread that the Magic wanted to deal Howard by August, there this report by Chris Broussard that the team may not deal Dwight at all or when a “great” opportunity presents itself. The Orlando Magic have told rival executives that [...]
Dwight Howard has rumored in so many deals that I lost count of them. These have been going on since last season’s NBA trade deadline. So as right now Howard is still a member of the Orlando Magic and according to a new report is might stay that way.
Chris Broussard from ESPN was told the Magic may not trade Howard after all.
The Orlando Magic have told rival executives...
So the Orlando Magic have come out and said they aren't going to trade disgruntled center Dwight Howard anytime soon. I guess this means more unnecessary drama will continue for the foreseeable future. Personally, I'm tired of hearing about Howard and his tendency to flip-flop depending on what time it is during the day. Another part of me says this is what Howard gets...
Orlando has told other executives that they will only trade Dwight Howard in a deal that is great for the franchise.
TSHQ Earth-Shattering Groundbreaking Story: Dwight Howard and Magic GM Rob Hennigan met in LA tonight apparently to discuss something. The question is, what did they discuss?

Just about everyone has expressed their exasperation over the Dwight Howard situation by now. The sports world is tired of hearing this story and everyone -- from players to fans to management -- want it over. Blame ESPN and the 24-hour news cycle, if you would like, for part of the over-coverage of this story with its reporting of "imminent deals" and backroom conversations...
By this time in July, NBA fans have typically already seen the biggest moves go down. The NBA's schedule makers are busy piecing together each team's 82-game schedule and talking with the TV networks about the games they want. That whole process and the next stage of the NBA's summer (perhaps the first stage, the one thing that should have been done back in December if...
The Rockets have been at the front of the offseason. Whether it was getting involved in Dwight Howard rumors or going after and signing Jeremy Lin, you cannot fault Daryl Morey for going out there and being active. Houston has been a middle of the Western Conference team for the better part of a decade. Always good enough to compete for a Playoff spot, never quite good enough to...
