Dwight Howard says he'll resign with only one team if traded

NBA superstar Dwight Howard has made it clear he is unhappy with his current team, the Orlando Magic.  In the midst of requesting a trade, Howard told Yahoo! in a recent phone interview that, “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.”  Not specifying which team, it is believed he is referring to the Brooklyn Nets.  In the interview, Howard also refuted allegations that he was faking a back injury to an effort to bail on the Magic.  Yahoo!‘s Adrian Wojnarowski reports:

Orlando Magic star Dwight Howard told Yahoo! Sports he will not re-sign with a team outside his preferred list that trades for him, and emphatically denied that he ever used the term “blackmail” to describe how Magic officials convinced him to waive his early termination option.

As the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and other teams prepare possible trade offers for him, Howard told Yahoo! by phone that, “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 wouldn’t specify the team, but multiple league sources believe that it is the Brooklyn Nets.

Howard also denied an ESPN report that he had told people Orlando Magic officials had “blackmailed” him into forgoing the early termination option on his contract that ultimately cost him his free agency this summer.
