ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Magic general manager Rob Hennigan says that Dwight Howard told him in a face-to-face meeting last week that he would like to be traded, and that his preference is to be dealt to the Brooklyn Nets.
Hennigan said Monday that Howard singling out one team complicates any potential trade scenarios, but he has not committed to honoring that demand and said he will keep communication lines open between both the All-Star and his agent.
The new Magic GM says Howard never claimed in the meeting in California the Magic blackmailed him to give up the early termination clause in his current deal. Howard asked to be traded last season, then opted-in for 2012-2013 - forgoing becoming a free agent this summer.
Hennigan says Howard is ''progressing well'' after back surgery.
