For Orlando Magic star Dwight Howard, it’s Brooklyn or bust.
“There’s only one team on my list and if I don’t get traded there, I’ll play the season out and explore my free agency after that,” Howard told Yahoo! Sports on Monday.
Howard did not specify the team, but Magic general manager Rob Hennigan confirmed Monday what multiple league sources have told ESPN — Howard wants to be traded to the Brooklyn Nets, making that clear in a meeting the GM had with the Magic center Friday.
Hennigan said Monday that Howard singling out one team complicates any potential trade scenarios, but he has not committed to honoring that demand and said he will keep communication lines open with the All-Star and his agent.
