NBA news: Dwight Howard wanted more say in Magic trades, may play overseas
Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard was in the news for multiple reasons yesterday. First off, Superman told a radio station that he had wanted a bigger say in the trades Orlando made during the 2010-11 season.
“I wanted to be more part of the process a little more,” Howard told 790 The Zone in Atlanta. “I had to step out on the court and I wanted to make sure that the people I played with wanted to go out and play hard every night.
My only issue was the fact that I didn’t really have a chance to be involved, but I think with the guys that we brought in we still have an excellent chance of winning, but we all have to be on the same page.”
Howard added that he missed many of the players Orlando traded.
“Marcin Gortat … I think he was very key since last season. Also Mickael Pietrus and Rashard Lewis and also Vince.
All of these guys are very key in our success and to see them go on the personal side it hurt, but I understand the NBA is a business and we have to keep going.”
Howard also made news yesterday when rumors surfaced of him joining the growing exodus of NBA players overseas during the lockout.
“There’s a huge possibility about me going to China or me going overseas to play basketball,” he said.

This is kinda funny! Just remember Howard is a free agent at the end of the 2011-12 season, if there even is one.
