This story is getting annoying, and I feel like Howard is a lost sould, who has no clue, or it's the media, just jumping story to strory. But I'm sure a lot of this is Howard. We know he had asked for the Nets deal. But that died.
"The agent for Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard refuted reports that his client has decided he will sign an extension with the Los Angeles Lakers -- if traded to them.
"Dwight's position has remained unchanged since the end of this past season," said Dan Fegan of LaGardere Unlimited. "He fully intends to explore free agency at the end of next season, regardless of what team trades for him, including Brooklyn."
HowardA source said the Nets never insisted Howard commit to an extension as a prerequisite for acquiring him, which Nets president Billy King confirmed in a text message.
Howard told the Magic, according to GM Rob Hennigan, he would like to be traded to the Brooklyn Nets above any other team. The Nets made concerted efforts to strike a deal for Howard earlier this month, but were forced to stop when the Charlotte Bobcats threatened to sign their restricted free agent center, Brook Lopez, to an offer sheet."
I hope he just stays in Orlando. I know some fans had wanted Howard, but that died, once he signed the extension this season, so he wasn't a free agent this summer, when the Celtics had cap space. That to me was a sign that he had no intentions on playing for any team with cap space this summer. I'm not sure on what teams have cap space next summer, but I'm sure the Nets can get under the cap to sign Howard? No they can't unless they find team wanting to trade for Brooks. When will this end? All I want is Howard not to land in LA.
