Magic Consider Tampering Charges Against Nets

Stay put, Nets fans. The Dwight Drama will not go smoothly.

David Aldridge reports the Magic are "contemplating filing tampering charges against two unnamed NBA teams for illegal contact with its franchise center." Sam Amick tweets that the two teams are the Nets and Rockets.

At the center of the proposed charges against the Nets (the Magic later said they wouldn't file charges against Houston) "is an alleged meeting between Dwight and Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov on Thursday. A source tells Broussard that Howard met with Prokhorov and Billy King in Miami on Thursday, and that the Magic were unaware of the meeting.

However, a "league source" tells Stefan Bondy the report is untrue.

Aldridge also writes that a source says that "a reported proposed package by the Nets of center Brook Lopez and Draft picks for Howard is not at all interesting to the Magic," and that Orlando "will not let Howard dictate the terms of where he wants to go."

Meanwhile, a report out of Orlando quotes sources who say that Dwight Howard "may soon fire his agent [Dan Fegan] and request a trade from the team." Another tweet denies that Fegan is being dumped.
