Report: Howard-to-Lakers talks resume
Dwight Howard’s trade demand stands, and the Orlando Magic are back working on obliging the five-time All-NBA center.
Yahoo Sports reports the Magic have re-engaged the Los Angeles Lakers and two other teams — believed to be the Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets — in a blockbuster proposal that would ultimately get Howard what he wants: out of Orlando.
Howard met with first-year general manager Rob Hennigan last month and shot down the team’s last-ditch effort, believed to be the third since Hennigan was hired a week before the 2012 NBA Draft, to convince Howard to give new management a chance with the Magic.
Howard is remaining in Los Angeles and this week skipped his basketball skills camp for youth.
A previous proposal from the Lakers involved the Cleveland Cavaliers receiving center Andrew Bynum and both teams sending picks and players to the Magic, whose main objectives in any deal remain unloading salary and stockpiling future draft choices.
