A few weeks before the NBA season began Dwight Howard requested a trade and the NBA blogosphere went ballistic for a few days. There were proposed trades from all corners of the Internet, most of them were shot down as ludicrous, and everyone just sort of moved on. But according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, Dwight Howard has not rescinded his request to be traded.
"Nothing has changed," Howard said before the Magic faced the Sacramento Kings at Power Balance Pavilion on Sunday.
Otis Smith confirmed Howard has not taken his trade request off the table and that Howard's agent still has permission to speak with three, and only three, teams: the Dallas Mavericks, the Los Angeles Lakers and the New Jersey Nets.
I guess since nothing had really developed on that front, we all just sort of forgot about it. But Howard clearly isn't impressed with the moves that the Magic made in the offseason, or the way they've played so far this season, enough to want to stick around. It will be interesting to see if as Howard's frustrations grow, the list of teams he is willing to be traded to grows.
