The Magic owner does not wish to trade Dwight. In related news, I don't want to pay taxes this year. We will both likely be disappointed.
DeVos made a surprise appearance in the Magic locker room tonight before their game against the Miami Heat, and he came right out and said what I believed he was thinking: He does not want to trade the best center in the NBA. "I don’t want to trade him," DeVos declared to reporters. "You never give up," DeVos said of the negotiations. "We’ve got a great talent, a great young man. He’s got to look at his options (and) what’s best for him and I have to tell him what I think is best for him. I’m selfish." ESPN.com’s Tom Haberstroh reported that Howard did not acknowledge the team owner while the two were together in the locker room.
Meanwhile the Magic actually beat the Heat tonight.
Dwight Howard had 25 points and 24 rebounds, Ryan Anderson scored 27 and the Orlando Magic hit 17 3-pointers in a 102-89 victory over the Miami Heat on Wednesday night.
And finally, David Stern doesn't think that any of this will be a distraction over All Star weekend. Right.
