Magic May Not Trade Dwight Howard, Could Wait Until Trade Deadline

Could the Orlando Magic really keep Dwight Howard? ESPN's Chris Broussard reports that the deal most of the NBA has been anticipating for a year or more may not happen after all.

An executive who has had discussions with the Magic regarding Howard said Orlando only will trade the star center in a deal that is great for the franchise. The executive said this has been Orlando's stance for the past "week or so."

Broussard includes the caveat that the Magic could still hold on to Howard until the February trade deadline in his report.

The Magic keeping Howard into the 2012-13 season could pave a path for a trade with Brooklyn, the destination that Howard has reportedly preferred all along. In January, the Nets can once again include Brook Lopez in a package for the Magic center.
