Orlando Content to Wait on Howard?

Ask three NBA executives and you’ll get five opinions about where Dwight Howard will land.
Some believe that the drama is playing out in the Lakers’ favor. In their trademark fashion, the Lakers will show up late to the party but still leave with the best-looking date, just as they did in the Steve Nash Sweepstakes. “The Lakers aren’t his first choice, but they’re his best choice,” one executive said. “And the Magic know they need Dwight on board to get the most in return.”
Others feel Orlando is content to wait, and many of them have quickly become admirers of new Magic general manager Rob Hennigan. “He’s not in a hurry,” an NBA executive said. “He has a very cool attitude, as if he knows something the rest of the league doesn’t know. It makes you wonder, is there a third wave of suitors out there? Is he holding out for [James] Harden or [Serge] Ibaka?”
Every executive agreed that, despite his petulance, Howard is worth a ton. “He’s an emotional midget,” one said. “But he’s worth moving a roster for.”
