Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: New Jersey Nets In Star's Sights, According To Report

Despite recent reports that Dwight Howard wants more sway in Orlando and would like an All-Star teammate by his side in the Sunshine State, Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday that the Orlando Magic star is preparing to leave -- and is intent on joining the New Jersey Nets.

"Dwight's gone, and [Magic CEO] Alex Martins is the only person who doesn't believe that," a league source with knowledge of Howard's intentions told Yahoo! Sports. ...

Said another official, who has been involved in deal talks with Orlando, New Jersey and the agents in the process: "Dwight is going to [expletive] them, and that will be especially true if he doesn't even ask for the sign-and-trade on July 1, because he wants Brooklyn to keep assets."

According to Wojnarowski, the Nets hope to acquire Howard, re-sign Deron Williams and settle on a deal with restricted free agent Brook Lopez worth approximately $10 million annually.

The NBA trade deadline is March 15, so stay tuned. See SBNation.com for complete trade deadline coverage.
