Dwight Howard has wanted to go to the Brooklyn Nets for a while. He could be loading his things into a swanky new Manhattan condo right now, but instead he's stuck in Orlando, thanks to the waiver he signed that prevented him from terminating his contract early. The Nets just traded for Joe Johnson, so they won't be trading for Howard.
Where's he headed now? According to ESPN's Ric Bucher, his first choice is to go to the Dallas Mavericks.
It's anyone's guess why Howard is so averse to going to the Lakers, but it can't make Rob Hennigan too happy.
