New Jersey Nets general manager Billy King is working on multiple scenarios to trade for Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard.
Sports Illustrated reported that King has put together three- and four-team deals if the Magic decide to deal Howard by the NBA’s trade deadline.
Howard, who will be a free agent after the season, has made it known that New Jersey is one of his preferred destinations.
King reportedly had trade offers in place in December in which he would deal center Brook Lopez, but Lopez suffered a broken foot in preseason and just returned to the court last week.
Howard, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2004 draft, sa id he was not worrying about what happens down the road.
“Right now, my only concern is winning games, playing as hard as I can every night and leading my team,” he said. “That’s the only thing I can control. I put all the other thoughts aside and I’m focused on one thing, the only thing I can control, which is what I do on the court. And that’s the only answer I can give you.”
