Dwight Howard Trade Lakers

December 12, 2011 by staff 

Dwight Howard Trade Lakers, Dwight Howard’s trade demand from the Orlando Magic is due in part to the organization not granting his requests for specific trades and signings over the last several years, the All-Star center said Sunday night.

Howard requested a trade during several meetings last week and has been given permission by the Magic to have contact with the New Jersey Nets, Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks. He went public with the demand Saturday and then followed that up with a strong explanation Sunday, referring to an eroding relationship with Magic general manager Otis Smith.

“I’m pretty sure if you go down the line of teams, every GM has a pretty good relationship with not just the best player but all the players,” Howard said. “If you don’t have a good relationship with the people you work with, how are you going to get better?”

Orlando is not limiting its Howard trade talks to the three teams, sources close to the situation told ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard on Monday. But while the Magic have opened up the talks, they are also holding out hope they can convince Howard, who has vacillated often on his desire to stay or go, to remain in Orlando, a source said.

The Magic would like Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol from the Lakers, but a source said the Lakers’ offer was expected to be Bynum, the trade exceptions acquired in a Lamar Odom trade to Dallas, and two draft picks.
