Dwight Howard Rumors: New Jersey Nets Among Four Teams Drawing Howard's Interest

Dwight Howard has narrowed his wish list of destinations to four teams, according to a report from ESPN's Chris Broussard, and his list includes the New Jersey Nets.

"There r only 4 teams Dwight Howard would sign longterm deal with - Orl, NJ, LAL, Dal - a source says," Broussard tweeted on Tuesday. 

The 6-foot-10 All-Star has waffled about whether he wants to return to Orlando, playing a game of flip-flop that sometimes changes by the day. After reportedly requesting a trade this past week and voicing concerns that Orlando general manager Otis Smith did not listen to his opinions, Howard told reporters he would like to stay with the Magic if they can make a few serious moves to become contenders again.

Howard is reportedly very interested in joining the New Jersey Nets, but it's unclear whether the Nets have the required assets to make a two-team trade. New Jersey manager Billy King would likely need to recruit a third team to sweeten the deal from Orlando's perspective.

The Nets have reportedly set a deadline for acquiring Howard that would expire at the end of this week.
