NBA Trade Rumors: Dwight Howard From Orlando Magic To The…Atlanta Hawks?

The Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers and New Jersey Nets are still the three preferred destinations for Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard if the team decides to trade him.

But while Howard would prefer to go to one of those places, Orlando could end up shipping him to another team if they get a better package in return.

Could Dwight Howard Go Back Home To Atlanta?

The Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets remain interested in the six-time All-Star, while another possible suitor is the Atlanta Hawks. Howard grew up in Atlanta and went to Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy in high school.

The Hawks are already trying to deal with Josh Smith’s trade request and are in the market for trade partners. Oddly enough, Smith and Howard played AAU ball together in high school (think that team was any good?), so it would be an interesting story if they were traded for one another.

But if the Magic could land Smith and Al Horford in exchange for Howard, that would probably represent the best deal they could get for the big man league-wide. On the other side of things, such a deal would make the Hawks instant contenders in the Eastern Conference and if any team not on Howard’s list has a chance to convince him to sign an extension it is his hometown squad.

The problem with such a deal would be the gigantic risk Atlanta would be taking since they could lose Howard via free agency and then be without Smith and Horford as well.

Again this is all speculation but as we approach the NBA’s March 15 deadline, the rumors surrounding Howard are sure to come fast and furious. And as that date nears the Magic are likely to expand their horizons beyond their 26-year-old superstar’s preferred landing spots. After all, the team has to get something in return for him.

  1. If the Lakers are ever thinking of a trade, it should be Fisher moving not Pau Gasol. We need a point guard who can shoot, pass, etc.

  2. I was thinking the same thing but I don’t think the magic would run the risk of trading for an injured Al Horford.

  3. Hawks trade J.Smith & Pachulia to Orlando for D.Howard & R.Anderson by Monday.

  6. Acupuncture is commonly used for migraines in Germany. If you happen to like sugar a little more than you should and you need that sugar fix each day, an enormous way to get control and to curb the sugar craving is by using a natural substance called 5-HTP. A group of Danish scientists measured 5-HIAA and other serotonin metabolites in a group and found that the lowest levels of serotonin were found in males who had killed a sexual partner or had attempted suicide.

  19. Some genuinely nice and useful information on this website, too I think the style contains wonderful features.

  20. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  21. I have figured out some new points from your website about personal computers. Another thing I have always assumed is that computer systems have become something that each residence must have for some reasons. They offer convenient ways in which to organize the home, pay bills, search for information, study, pay attention to music and in some cases watch tv programs. An innovative method to complete these types of tasks has been a computer. These computer systems are mobile ones, small, highly effective and portable.

  22. Appreciating the time and energy you put into your blog and detailed information you offer. It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.
