Dwight Howard has asked Magic for trade

Magic GM Otis Smith told the media on Saturday that Dwight Howard has asked to be traded on two separate occasions this week.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: A trade is coming. And sooner rather than later, too.

Reports are surfacing that Dwight Howard twice formally asked the Orlando Magic for a trade this past week.

Now the Magic can talk all they like about re-upping with their franchise face and All-Star post, however, Howard has decided he wants out.

There’s still a remote chance Howard inks a long-term extension to stay, but the Magic would have to put together a strong, strong season.

And a winning season would be difficult – if not impossible – with Howard’s pending free agency hanging over the club like an ominous rain cloud.

Day-in, day-out the media would hound Howard, club officials, and teammates with pestering questions.

It would be wiser to give Howard the trade he seems to so desperately want.
