Report: Magic CEO Denies Lakers Rumor
Orlando Magic continue to say they have made no decisions about what they’ll do with Dwight Howard as the NBA trade deadline approaches on March 15.
And they are saying that a rumor making its way around Orlando that they’ve reached a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers and a third team is totally false.
The scuttlebutt is that the Magic would send Howard, Hedo Turkoglu and Jameer Nelson to the Lakers and the Magic would receive Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol. A third team, the Toronto Raptors, could be part of the deal or in a separate trade with the Magic, sending point guard José Calderon to Orlando.
Magic CEO Alex Martins told the Sentinel the rumor is wrong.
