Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Orlando Reportedly Ready To Deal Disgruntled Center

According to a report by Chris Sheridan the Orlando Magic have made the decision to trade Dwight Howard sooner rather than later.

A plugged-in league source tells SheridanHoops.com that the feeling is mutual, and Orlando is prepared to trade him sooner rather than later.

The source said that when Magic team president traveled to Michigan last weekend to speak in person with owner Rich DeVos, the conclusion was reached that not only was it time for Stan Van Gundy and Otis Smith to go, but Howard, too.

Van Gundy and Smith were let go last week and many assumed that it had everything to do with Howard. This report refutes that and indicates that the Magic are ready to start over with whatever pieces might come in a Howard trade. Complicating matters is the lack of a general manager for the Magic which would seem to make any trade in the short term very difficult to pull off.
