It's Official: Magic Will Trade Dwight Howard

Chris Sheridan: Exclusive: #Magic brass are ready to trade Dwight Howard
Mike Fisher: magic's GM ready to trade Dwight as soon as magic GM actually exists. Solid situation, Orlando.

Royce Young: Report: Magic ready to start talking Dwight Howard trades again
Michael Dugat: Anyone else find this odd: Stories running simultaneously on Magic deciding to trade Howard ... and start interviews for a new GM.
Got two links with more info, hold on:



Fire up the Dwightmare engine, because it's time go 'round and 'round again.

According to Sheridan Hoops, the Magic are ready to trade Dwight Howard and will entertain offers once next week's draft lottery results are in.

A plugged-in league source tells SheridanHoops.com that the feeling is mutual, and Orlando is prepared to trade him sooner rather than later.

The source said that when Magic team president traveled to Michigan last weekend to speak in person with owner Rich DeVos, the conclusion was reached that not only was it time for Stan Van Gundy and Otis Smith to go, but Howard, too.
There was some feeling that the firing of Stan Van Gundy and agreement to part ways with Otis Smith was in an effort to keep Howard, but that doesn't seem to be the case. The Magic might be clearing the slate.

CBSSports.com's Ken Berger wrote this after Van Gundy and Smith were let go:

According to two people familiar with the Magic's strategy, the departure of Van Gundy and Smith does not necessarily mean Howard is staying in Orlando. Similarly, if the Magic had chosen to keep Van Gundy and/or Smith, it wouldn't necessarily have signaled that Howard was gone.

Nobody seems to have a clue what the Magic are doing, even the Magic themselves. The whole Dwight Howard trade deadline mess ended with Howard waiving his early termination option and agreeing to stay with the Magic (under contract at least) for the next year.
Here's the likely process that happened:

Howard really liked this Magic team and wanted to stay for the season and then take off in the summer. The Magic weren't having that, so they were going to trade Howard at the deadline. Howard waived the ETO so he could stay with the team. But he still wants out. And the Magic don't seem to have an upper hand to keep him.

A report in April had Howard still likely to request a trade this summer, and that doesn't seem to have changed despite the front office decisions. A report earlier in the week said Howard still wanted to be traded.

That sound you hear? That's Nets GM Billy King calling the Magic right now.

Update!:


Howard regrets forgoing his early termination option on his 2012-13 contract, sources said, and wants a trade before next season. Nevertheless, the Nets become far less appealing should Williams leave in July as a free agent, so Howard's camp is applying pressure on Orlando to expedite a deal once it hires a new general manager.

Orlando ownership has softened on moving Howard and doesn't want to spend another season pleading with him to sign an extension. The organization's preference is to get the best possible trade package for him and start retooling the franchise. Nevertheless, the Magic will give a new GM some latitude to navigate Howard's future once he's hired. Several of the potential GM candidates in Orlando have already been devising trade scenarios for Howard and plan to propose those ideas to Orlando president Alex Martins in the interview process.



Also:

All-Star point guard Deron Williams has made one decision about his free agency: If the Brooklyn Nets win the No. 1 pick in the NBA's draft lottery on Wednesday night – and the chance to secure Kentucky center Anthony Davis – it won't be enough for Williams to sign a contract extension, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

"It's Dwight Howard or bust," said a league source who has spoken to Williams.

Williams doesn't want to stay with the Nets unless they become an instant Eastern Conference contender and wouldn't accept waiting for Davis' development. The Nets have a 7.5 percent chance of winning the lottery, and sources said the organization would be willing to part with Davis for the chance to pair Howard and Williams for the franchise's move into a new Brooklyn arena next season.

For the Nets to beat the odds and get the rights to draft Davis, they believe that they'll be able to hold onto forward Brook Lopez in a potential deal with Orlando.
