The agent for Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard confirmed NBA commissioner David Stern’s accusation that Howard’s representatives were the sources that provided details of Wednesday’s private meeting in Los Angeles with Magic officials.
However, the agent said, those representatives did so only after media members were tipped off to the meeting taking place by some other source and out of concern that subsequent reports about the content of the meeting would be inaccurate.
“It’s very unique, especially if it’s driven by a quote source that happens to be Dwight’s agent,” Stern told USA Today. “‘A source in the meeting.’ Oh, OK, who might that be?”
Stern reportedly did not believe the leak came from the Magic.
