Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Magic Center Conflicted Over Future

Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard spoke to the media Saturday regarding his recent demands to be traded and made it clear that he feels conflicted.

"Just because I've asked to be traded doesn't mean that I don't like where I'm at. The back and forth for me is based on the people here."

Howard, who was wearing a Magic hat, told reporters that he is reading everything he receives on Facebook and Twitter and he is "hurt" by some of the stuff being sent.

When asked if he wants to be in Orlando when the season starts, Howard said, "Yes, I do. But that's up to the people in charge."

Dwight also said he had a meeting with CEO Alex Martins today where both sides presented their arguments and both sides promised to work together for the best mutual decision.
