Dwight Howard has basically denied Chris Sheridan's report that he's interested in joining the Clippers, tweeting to a fan who noted it, "love how everything y’all see y’all believe. If it ain’t from the horse don’t believe it. But God bless u." Moreover, Otis Smith said Howard's agent has not told him the center has expanded his list of preferred teams beyond the Nets, Lakers and Mavericks.
And if that isn't enough, Ramona Shelburne of ESPN LA says the Clippers and Magic "haven't had any serious discussions with the Clippers about Howard since the lockout was lifted," which would mean before the Clips traded for Chris Paul. Moreover, Shelburne reports that Magic would almost assuredly ask for Blake Griffin or Paul, which the Clippers would laugh at and that the other big man doing well in L.A., DeAndre Jordan, can't be traded this season.
