Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Magic Getting Close To Decision

In a report by Ken Berger of CBSSports.com, he says the Orlando Magic are getting close to a decision on what they will do with Dwight Howard leading up to Thursday's trade deadline.

He is also reporting that no matter what happens this season, Howard already knows where he wants to be next season.

All signs continue to point to Howard, 26, wanting to land in Brooklyn next season with Deron Williams. "I think he wants that big market," said a person apprised of Howard's plans. Teams inquiring about Howard in recent days have been told, yet again, that his No. 1 choice is the Nets, who will open a new arena in Brooklyn next season.

In a tweet from Magic beat writer Josh Robbins, Magic owner Rich DeVos is still holding out hope that Dwight will stay past Thursday's deadline.
