Howard Admits First Choice was Nets
Dwight Howard admitted Thursday that he wanted to be traded from the Orlando Magic to the Brooklyn Nets.
Howard, who was ultimately dealt to the Los Angeles Lakers, said, “I did want to go to Brooklyn. That’s a place where I told the Magic that I really wanted to go,” to Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco on ESPN NewYork 98.7 FM. “[But] I was traded to the Lakers, and I think it was a blessing in disguise.”
