Trade Rumor: Six to eight teams pursuing Dwight Howard

With less than 10 days to go until the March 15 trade deadline, the future of Magic center Dwight Howard [1] is still cloudy.

It’s been known for some time that there are three teams on his list of preferred trade destinations: New Jersey, Dallas and the Lakers. It has also been known that Golden State would be willing to trade for Howard [2] without assurances that he would sign an extension with them.

Magic GM told Otis Smith told the Orlando Sentinel that “six to eight” teams were still calling [3]. Orlando is still hoping to convince Howard to stay long-term.

In other Howard-related news, the Nets [4] announced that center Brook Lopez [5] will be out three weeks [6] with a sprained right ankle. Lopez has been mentioned prominently in trade talks.
