Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Magic Center Considering Firing His Agent, According To Report

The NBA Trade Deadline is on Thursday, which means that this whole Dwight Howard situation will finally be coming to a head. But even with all of the other stuff going on, Howard has enough time to consider firing his agent, according to our Magic blog Orlando Pinstriped Post.

According to Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD, Howard is considering firing Fegan. Howard dismissed Aaron Goodwin, who had represented him since the Magic selected Howard 1st overall in the 2004 NBA Draft, in 2010. Because Fegan did not represent Howard when Howard inked his extension in 2007, he will not receive another commission until Howard signs his next deal. But if Howard fires him, Fegan--one of the most powerful agents in basketball--will be out of a commission altogether.

It's hard to believe that Howard would be upset with how his situation has played out since he has been in control since the beginning. But firing his agent will only complicate things. Gonna be a fun day!
