Dwight Howard Trade Rumors

Dwight Howard Trade Rumors, This whole Dwight Howard trade rumor bonanza hasn’t been nearly as dissected as the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes of 2010-11. Blame the condensed game schedule, the lack of involvement of the core New York media and the lack of involvement of a reality show, but the actual mechanics behind the Howard saga are actually comparatively understood.

With Melo, we knew just about everything, it seemed. Howard’s situation isn’t quite an open book.

So let us answer any questions you, The World At Large, may have about this whole Dwight Howard thing.

Does Dwight really want to be traded?

Conditionally, yes. Howard is pretty renowned for not knowing what he wants, but this much is clear:

1. He isn’t terribly excited about re-signing with the Orlando Magic for various reasons.

2. He likes money, and would prefer more money to less money, because he is human and is not an acolyte of Notorious B.I.G.’s grandest philosophy.

3. He understands that re-signing with Bird rights is the clearest path to getting the maximum annual salary and commitment possible.

4. He has a list, which may or may not constantly change in content, of teams he would be happy to sign with long-term.

Howard has those three to five teams he has indicated he’ll sign a long-term deal with — the Nets, Lakers, Mavericks and possibly the Sacramento Kings and Besiktas. If he’s traded to any other team, he’d be in the same position he’s in now: he’d have to sign a non-Bird deal — a smaller, shorter deal — as a free agent with one of his preferred clubs.
