NBA Trade Rumors: Magic Deny Report On Dwight Howard

The Orlando Magic deny an earlier report that they had made up their minds to trade Dwight Howard. According to a report by the Orlando Sentinel's Joshua Robbins no such decision will be made until the Magic have a new general manager in place.

Robbins also reports that Orlando will not make a decision on Howard's future until the new GM has had the opportunity to give Howard his "vision" for the club. Howard's response to that vision will direct the Magic on how to proceed.

Despite the earlier report it is highly unlikely that the Magic would make any such trade with a player of Howard's stature until they had a new GM in place.
