The Orlando Magic have informed Dwight Howard and his agent, Dan Fegan, that they will attempt to trade him, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Wojnarowski's report comes just hours after Chris Broussard of ESPN reported a meeting between Howard and Magic General Manager Rob Hennigan ended with Howard asking for a trade, and that Howard wanted to sue the Magic in order to enter free agency immediately before learning he didn't have a case.

Howard's wish is to join Deron Williams with the Brooklyn Nets, but Wojnarowski says Williams' "patience" with regard to Howard "is wearing out," and notes that the Nets may have turned their attention to other targets.

The Houston Rockets are believed to be interested in trading for Howard despite assurances from Howard's representatives that he would not re-sign there after the season. Orlando is not obligated to trade Howard to a team of his choosing.

All NBA trades and signings are on hold until July 11th. Teams can agree to transact business with one another or with free agents, but cannot formally announce any deals until the moratorium period ends.
