Magic Johnson Wants Dwight Howard Traded

In the wake of Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s declaration that the ‘Bank of Cuban’ is open in regards to a trade, Lakers legend Magic Johnson thinks Cuban could be close to nabbing the most prized name being floated around: Lakers center Dwight Howard.

The NBA trade deadline is February 21, 2013.
