Dwight Howard Not Expecting Trade
Dwight Howard thinks he’ll represent the Orlando Magic at this year’s All-Star Game in Orlando – and he doubts he’ll be switching uniforms at all this season in spite of his desire to be traded.
Howard has not rescinded his trade request, but he told Yahoo! Sports he thinks there’s a “100 percent” chance the Magic won’t trade him before the Feb. 26 All-Star Game at the team’s Amway Center. Team officials still hope to convince Howard to commit to staying with the franchise for the long term.
“I don’t think they are going to do anything right now because we’re winning,” Howard said after a 104-97 victory over the Sacramento Kings improved the Magic’s record to 6-3. “Even if this is the last season, let’s go out hard, regardless.”
