Dwight Howard Trade Talks Include Houston Rockets Trying To Complete It Alone

Even though the Dwight Howard trade rumors looked to be coming to a close earlier this week, the internet seemingly knew the saga was far from over. That has proven to the be the case, too, as the Orlando Magic are now looking at new deals in an attempt to trade their disgruntled superstar.

There was a point in negotiations that the New Jersey Nets and Magic looked like they might be able to make a simple two-team deal, but things got out of control fast -- eventually also including the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Clippers as ancillary pieces to the puzzle -- and that deal reportedly fell apart earlier this week.

The new buzz revolves around Daryl Morey and the Houston Rockets. The Rockets have been working hard to acquire assets over the past month and now, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, they're dealing with the Magic directly.

The Rockets have been mentioned throughout the process, but most reports had them grouped into a three-way trade that would also include the Los Angeles Lakers. It's a whole different deal if they're trying to keep LA out of the mix.
