Rumor: Magic will make Howard wait for trade?

When Dwight Howard asked to be traded, the Magic informed him that the team will not let his request dictate their timetable for a decision.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Dwight Howard will have to wait for his ticket out of Orlando.

Magic executives reportedly told their franchise-face, who formally asked for a trade, that they won’t rush to satisfy his request for a change of scenery.

There are two sides to this approach. On the one hand, the Magic’s future is at stake, so they must take their time and get what they can from potential suitors.

On the other hand, waiting means dealing with with 24/7 internet rumors and constant questioning from media. Such distractions could railroad their season.

There’s both good and bad to making Howard wait for what seems inevitable.
