Now that the Magic appear willing to oblige Dwight Howard‘s wishes to send him elsewhere, we’re hearing more about Howard’s exponentially growing discontent with the Magic.

We already knew about Howard’s alleged displeasure of Stan Van Gundy. But in recent days we’ve learned about new incidents ranging from the predictable (his reported asking for a trade for the millionth time — or maybe the billionth time; I’ve lost track) to the downright outrageous (the hilarious report about his accusing the Magic of “blackmail”).

And now we’re hearing about Howard reportedly having a physical altercation with Jameer Nelson last season. Oy vey. Here’s HoopsWorld:

Several of Howard’s teammates are hoping for his departure as well. Toward the end of last season, Howard came close to a physical altercation with teammate Jameer Nelson at the Magic’s practice facility. Howard was sidelined with a back injury at the time, but nearly came to blows with Nelson for unknown reasons, according to sources. The two players had to be separated.

There comes a time when you trade a superstar not because you have no chance of re-signing him but because you just want to get rid of a headache.
