ESPN: Dwight Howard ask Orlando Magic for trade to Nets

Howard's representatives have told the Nets that they are his preferred destination.

Howard has yet to tell the Magic he will not re-sign with them after this season, but the sources said he will within the next few days, perhaps as early as Friday. There is also a chance that Howard will not attend the opening of training camp Friday, according to a source.

As ESPN.com reported last week, the Nets are ready to offer the Magic a package built around center Brook Lopez and two first-round draft picks, New Jersey's own and one the Nets acquired from Houston in a previous trade, according to sources.

New Jersey is also willing to take back Hedo Turkoglu and the three years, $34 million remaining on his deal.

I'm not surprised at all. I doubt the Magic do this deal. They might if they truly feel he's gone,or if he actually tells them bye I'm not coming back anyways. What a wild week in the NBA! Howard I hope is up front. If he in fact asked for a trade. Then maybe he did it the right way, It seemed like so many others did it in private.
