Will The Magic Really Trade Dwight Howard This Summer?

Jeff Van Gundy says it’s ‘absurd’ that the Magic pretend Dwight Howard wasn’t the reason Stan Van Gundy was fired

There are two theories regarding the firing of Stan Van Gundy: the Magic are looking to start fresh, or they know their only chance of keeping Dwight Howard was to fire their head coach.

Magic deny report that they're ready to trade Dwight

Probably not the worst idea ever assuming Sheridan's report is the one you choose to believe.

Lots of negativity around the Magic (I have some more coming later). Rumors are flying. Everyone is trying to guess who the next coach and GM will be.

Lakers may have options for improving team

I wrote yesterday about the possibility of Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum playing somewhere new next year. He clearly isn’t happy in L.A., however with his low level of team dedication, I doubt he’ll be happy anywhere. But hey, a change of scenery couldn’t hurt. This past season, as the trade deadline approached, there were discussions of trading Bynum to Orlando for...
