Dwight Howard update of the day (Sixers?)
Dwight Howard to the Sixers?
According to David Pingalore
of Orlando's WKMG-TV (via Liberty Ballers
), the Sixers are one of the teams talking with the Magic about acquiring the 6-foot-11, 265-pound center.
Would Howard come to the Sixers? Liberty Ballers' Derek Bodner would be shocked:
"While I consider this extremely unlikely (1% chance, at best?)," Bodner writes, "it gives us something to talk about."
That it does. Here's more ...
According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski
, Howard's list is barely a list at all.
"There’s only one team on my list and if I don’t get traded there, I'll play the season out and explore my free agency after that," Howard said.
Howard did not identify the “one team,” but according to Wojnarowski, league sources believe Howard is referring to the Brooklyn Nets.
From SI.com’s Sam Amick
“[A] source said the Magic are open for business on trade calls now,” Amick wrote, “and various reports indicate that talks are heating up with the Hawks, Lakers and Nets.”
And if you’re annoyed with the ongoing Howard saga, you’re not the only one.
According to ESPNDallas.com
, Charles Barkley has had enough.
"Dwight needs to make a decision because I’m sick of hearing about it every year where he’s going to go and I told him he needs to grow up and make a decision," Barkley said. "I don’t want to hear this stuff ever year coming up on the trade deadline. Make a decision and live with it."
