According to GM Otis Smith, Dwight Howard's camp has yet to inform the Magic of any preferred destinations besides the Lakers, Mavericks, and Nets, despite rumblings of Chicago. That was one of the many updates we heard yesterday in the roundup of Howard links. What will today bring? We'll recap the latest on D12 right here:
- ESPN.com's Chris Broussard (Insider link) thinks it's time for Howard to force a trade, preferably to the Nets, since the center's previous "request" left too much room for interpretation. Broussard argues Howard is worried too much about his brand and hurting the city's feelings, even though the Magic superstar knows he won't be in Orlando much longer.
- Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld fielded a number of Howard-related questions via his Twitter feed today. Among the higlights: Kyler views the Nets as the frontrunner, and thinks there's less than a 25% chance that Howard stays in Orlando (Twitter links). I'm in agreement on both counts.
