Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Magic Center Likely Next To Go

After a busy day yesterday, in which the Orlando Magic fired head coach Stan Van Gundy and parted ways with general manager Otis Smith, the franchise could look to continue to shake things up by dealing Dwight Howard, according to reports.

Despite Van Gundy's firing seemingly coming on the heels of friction between the coach and his star center -- things notably coming to a head when Van Gundy told reporters that he was told Howard wanted him fired -- Orlando could look to continue cleaning house. According to CBSSports.com's Ken Berger:

Should the Magic consult with Howard on who the next coach and GM should be? In theory, that's a good idea. But indications are strong that Howard's leaving anyway, so from here this looks like a complete revamping of the organization from top to bottom. The Magic will offer Howard an extension, and if he balks -- as expected -- the new GM's first order of business will be to trade him this summer.
