Quentin Richardson already wasn’t much of a factor for the Magic, but now he’s just embarrassing himself. The Orlando small forward missed Friday night’s home loss to the Bulls because of a problem with his ankle.

The Warriors are aggressively pursuing a trade for Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard, Yahoo! Sports reported Thursday
Dwight Howard gave the Magic a list of places where he would sign an extension (New Jersey, Dallas, the Los Angeles Lakers). The Magic said they would listen to offers from teams willing to “rent” Howard for this season without the guarantee he would opt in for another year at least (as Chris Paul did)…

Even if Derrick Rose believed bad things happen in threes, it wouldn’t matter.
Twice Dwight Howard has knocked Rose out of games with hard fouls in the lane.
But Rose promised before Friday night’s game against the Magic that he would not change his strategy.
“No, I’m still going to attack, go to the hole,” he said. “I’m [...]
