Dwight Howard Trade Will Be Job No. 1 For New Magic GM, According To Report

The Orlando Magic will soon hire either Jeff Bower or Dennis Lindsey as the team's new general manager, according to several reports. Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel reports that the first job for the new GM will be to trade Dwight Howard.

Howard famously waffled on his desire to remain in Orlando at the trade deadline. Eventually, the team plied him with gumdrops, and the All-NBA center waived his early termination option, leaving him under contract for the 2012-13 season.

Bower spent time as the GM of the New Orleans Hornets before being replaced by Dell Demps. Demps worked with Lindsey in the San Antonio Spurs' front office, where Lindsey is currently the assistant general manager behind R.C. Buford.
