Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: New Jersey Nets The Preferred Destination

Dwight Howard has formally requested a trade, according to Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith, and he reportedly has his eyes on one destination. Previously, Howard had been reportedly granted permission to speak to three teams: The Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks and New Jersey Nets. Of the three, Howard prefers the Nets, and has requested the Magic send him to New Jersey, according to a report.

The report comes from Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Dwight Howard has requested that the Orlando Magic trade him to the New Jersey Nets, league sources tell Y! Sports.

All along, the signs have been around. Howard allegedly met with the Nets, specifically owner Mikhail Prokhorov, before the free agency period began, though his agent denied those reports. The Magic also remain interested in finding ways to keep Howard in Orlando, though the chances seem small at this point.
