Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Orlando Magic Suspend Trade Talks

It's been a tumultuous day in the NBA on Wednesday, as expected. The Dwight Howard Saga, however, lives on, despite the news that the Brooklyn Nets have dropped out of the trade sweepstakes.

The clarity of the rumors isn't any more focused, even with the Nets out of the picture. The Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and Atlanta Hawks all have been linked to obtaining Howard in the past 24 hours, and unfortunately for fans of all teams involved, it doesn't look like a resolution is coming in the immediate future.

Nobody can really blame the Magic for wanting to hire its new head coach before dealing Howard. That way, whoever the new coach is can help have a say in deciding the organization's future, which will drastically change with a Howard trade.

For more on the Hawks, head over to Peachtree Hoops and join the discussion.
