Magic Owner Rich DeVos Talks Dwight Howard
Howard publicly has questioned whether the front office has surrounded him with the talent he needs to win a title.
“We talk about all that,” DeVos said. “We want to win, too. We all want to win, OK? I don’t think he tells you anything he doesn’t tell me. You can’t change anything until he says he’s going to stay. Then you can do a lot of things.”
DeVos also dispelled the notion that — if the team’s front office determines it must trade Howard — he would veto a trade to the Los Angeles Lakers because the Lakers signed Shaquille O’Neal to a free-agent deal years ago.
“I don’t have any emotion on that,” DeVos said. “I never talked about where he would go because I don’t want him to go. I don’t discuss where he might go.”
