Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Orlando Magic Now Contradicting Themselves

It would probably be a superb idea for the Orlando Magic brass to quiet down and huddle up for a moment, lest things get anymore foolish. Let's rundown what's happened in the past hour or so to try and get an idea of what's going on here.

First, Dwight Howard's agent told Adrian Wojnarowski that the Magic had given him permission to speak to three teams, including the New Jersey Nets. Shortly thereafter, Orlando Magic CEO Alex Martins shot down the report, saying Howard had been given no such permission. Now this, passed along by Sam Amick.

Magic folks might want to get on the same page here. @RicBucher reporting that Orlando GM Otis Smith said he did give permission.

So the GM says Howard has been permission and the CEO says he hasn't. Remember earlier when I said this saga had already gone off the deep end? We've passed the pants on head stage and moved straight to lampshade on head territory. And we still have no idea whether Howard has permission to speak to other teams.

Back with more when it becomes available, hopefully after the Magic huddle up.
