Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Magic Looking To Take "Best Deal"

Orlando Magic All-Star center Dwight Howard has still not been traded, though he's indicated he very much would like to be over the last couple weeks. And as Orlando looks to deal its disgruntled star big man, it appears as if it's also establishing a deadline to do so. Per Brian K. Schmitz:, the Orlando Magic Insider for the Orlando Sentinel:

At 5 p.m., Magic inclined to take "best deal," aren't entertaining idea of playing hardball to keep Dwight longer to enhance another trade

As of today, the leading candidates for a destination for Howard still seem to be Brooklyn, as well Houston or the Los Angeles Lakers.
