Another week, another rumor of Dwight Howard on the move. The latest coming from ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. Just last week, Superman indicated that he would accept a trade to the Los Angeles Clippers. Howard had previously given his blessing to relocating in New York or LA with the Lakers. The back and forth began prior to the season opener and has continued ever since.

Talk of Howard getting shipped to New York has surfaced, according to NBA Insider Stephen A. Smith. Reportedly, the Orlando Magic have approached the Knicks about trading for the mega-star. Howard becomes a free agent at the end of the season and the Magic are determined to either re-sign him or get something back in return. Orlando was left high and dry once before, when Shaquille O'Neal left the Magic via free agency just as he was entering his prime and Orlando got nothing in return.
The basis of the deal would send center Tyson Chandler and power forward Amare Stoudamire from the Knicks to Orlando in exchange for Howard. If there were such a deal, the salary cap would have to match up up, so other players might be involved, if it were to take place. Over the past year, the Knicks traded for Carmelo Anthony and added Chandler and Stoudamire via free agency. The Knicks have had trouble meshing this season, with Carmelo and Amare reportedly having difficulty playing together.
