Magic GM Rob Hennigan On Dwight Howard Trade Talks: 'We Haven't Ruled Out Anything'

Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan told reporters that the franchise has not ruled out any sort of resolution to the Dwight Howard saga, but he did confirm that trade talks with the Brooklyn Nets have become "stationary." The statements come minutes after several reports suggested the Magic had ended trade talks with Howard as the centerpiece for the time being.

"We haven't ruled out everything. we continue to be process driven." Hennigan said. "We're going to stay committed to that philosophy. I don't think we can put any concrete parameters around everything. I don't think that makes a whole lot of sense."

Hennigan did deny that the Magic had suspended all Howard trade talks until a new coach is hired, calling that report "not accurate." He also did not rule out the possibility that Howard would stay with the franchise. He did confirm that he spoke to Howard on Wednesday, but declined to reveal the specifics of that conversation.

When asked to address the idea that the Magic were placing a higher priority on the coaching search than moving Howard, Hennigan said that the Magic's priorities were "fluid" and could change depending on other team's situations.
