Magic Renew Discussions With Nets On Dwight Howard Trade, According To Report

The will-he, won't-he Dwight Howard trade saga has, yet again, taken another turn Wednesday. The Brooklyn Nets appeared to be moving on from the Orlando Magic center after it was reported that they were negotiating with Brook Lopez on a max contract extension. In turn, the Magic apparently spent most of Tuesday talking with the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Now it appears that the Magic have re-engaged talks with the Nets, according to a sleep-deprived and probably delirious Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Nets appear to be tiring of the process, along with everyone else. According to sources, the team has resolved to end trade talks Wednesday, either with Howard or without him. Lopez' situation certainly puts them in a bind. The Nets can't afford to let him sign an offer sheet with another team, negating the possibility of a sign-and-trade.
