Broussard: Magic May Wait on Any Dwight Howard Deal

Chris Broussard of ESPN reports that the Orlando Magic have told rival executives that they might not trade Dwight Howard after all, according to league sources.

According to Broussard, an executive who has had discussions with the Magic regarding Howard said Orlando only will trade the star center in a deal that is great for the franchise. The executive said this has been Orlando's stance for the past week or so.

Also, another executive who has talked with Orlando said he thinks the Magic may start the season with Howard and wait until the February trade deadline to move him.

Broussard notes that each executive left the door open for posturing, and that the Magic may be bluffing in hopes of coaxing better offers out of opposing teams, The overriding sense, though, is that Howard may not be moved for weeks, if not months.
