The Orlando Magic cleaned house in management in an attempt to please Dwight Howard. But Howard still wants a trade, according to a report from SheridanHoops.com.

The Orlando Magic parted ways with coach Stan Van Gundy and general manager Otis Smith on Monday, likely to please Dwight Howard. But The Big Undecided might still be unhappy.

According to Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com, Howard still wants to be traded from the Magic and "harbors a lot of resentment toward the Magic for forcing his hand the way they did on deadline day." If he harbors so much resentment, it's unclear why he chose not to exercise his opt-out clause to become a free agent this summer. But such is Howard's flip-flopping, which had him change his mind several times last season about whether, and to where, he wanted a trade.

Sheridan mentions the Brooklyn Nets and New York Knicks as the two potential landing spots for Orlando's capricious superstar. According to Sheridan, the Nets would have to offer a package centering around draft picks and either Kris Humphries or Brook Lopez, while the Knicks would have to part with two of their three front court stars -- Tyson Chandler, Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony.
