Dwight Howard Trade Talks Suspended For Now, According To Report

Remember just a couple days ago when a Dwight Howard trade from the Orlando Magic to the Brooklyn Nets seemed inevitable? Talks fell apart Tuesday as a proposed deal that would include the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Houston Rockets became unwieldy and disintegrated. Now it appears things are back at square one. Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld reports that the Magic have informed Howard that they are suspending trade talks for now.

The news likely forces the Nets' hand to re-sign current center Brook Lopez and move on without Howard. The Nets had seemingly grown tired of the negotiations anyway, and needed to act quickly before Lopez signed an offer sheet with another team.
