Rumor: Orlando let Dwight Howard talk to three teams?
The marriage between the Orlando Magic and Dwight Howard, for all intents and purposes, is now basically over. Just a matter of where the big man ends up. Reports SI: “Dwight Howard’s agent, Dan Fegan, tells SI that the Magic gave Howard permission to have contact with several teams to explore his options. Fegan says report that Dwight could have been traded today was ‘inaccurate.’ Fegan says the Orlando gave Howard permission to talk to three teams. New Jersey was one of them.”
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: This is the latest evidence that Dwight Howard is done with the Orlando Magic.
After all, the Magic ‘reportedly’ allowed Howard, their franchise face and perennial All-Star, to talk to three teams about a trade and extension.
Remember, Howard can and will opt-out of the final year of his contract next summer, meaning he can leave the Magic as a free agent.
And he won’t sign an extension with the Magic, so the club is letting Howard explore his options to help facilitate a trade.
