And now, a Dwightmare update! Chris Broussard reports that Orlando's new GM, Rob Hennigan met with Dwight Howard in Los Angeles Friday and the All-NBA center reiterated that he wants to be traded to the Brooklyn Nets.
Hennigan was noncommital when Howard told him he wants to be traded to Brooklyn, sources told Broussard. In addition, the ESPN writer said Howard is investigating whether the NBA Players Association would sue on his behalf to get his March 15 opt-in reversed, claiming that he was "blackmailed" into agreeing to stay in Orlando. There's no indication the NBPA will go along.
Howard wants to play with Deron Williams, Broussard has written.
