Meeting with a local media Monday, new Magic GM Rob Hennigan said he and Dwight Howard discussed his plans for the future in Los Angeles on Friday and Howard was direct about being dealt and to whom. "Dwight mentioned he wanted to be traded and Brooklyn is where he wanted to go."

In an interview Sunday with Adrian Wojnarowski, Howard had said he had told Hennigan there was only "one team" on his list but had not identified it.

Hennigan would not put a deadline on dealing D12. "I don't have any sort of timeline," he said. He did note that fans of the Magic deserve to know the Magic's plans. "Our fans certainly deserve some details... We are going to do what is in the best interest of this organization." When asked if he wanted to keep Howard, he replied, "We want people who want to be here."

In a telling moment just before the 30-year-old Hennigan spoke, the Magic's first round pick, Andrew Nicholson was asked if he was looking forward to playing with Howard. "I'm just excited to be here," he said.
