According to the Orlando Sentinel, Dwight Howard has told the team he will not re-sign and wants to be traded:
Dwight Howard has told the Orlando Magic that he wants to be traded, Magic General Manager Otis Smith told the Orlando Sentinel Saturday afternoon.
Smith said Howard has made the request twice in separate conversations since Monday.
As earlier reports indicated, the Magic gave Howard’s agent permission to talk with the Nets, Lakers, and Mavericks.
He can have his list of teams that he would like to go to, and we’ve probably got a few on our list of teams that we would like. But at the end of the day, we want him here and we want him in a Magic uniform for his career. With that said, we’re going to make the best possible deal that we can make if we have to trade him.”
The Sentinel also is reporting that Howard is participating today in the Magic’s second training-camp practice, which started at 4 p.m ET
