08:13 AM ET 05.09 | When we last saw Dwight Howard, he was walking into a somewhat uncertain future after cutting off interviews with the media. Let us hope Magic GM Otis Smith has more productive conversations with Dwight about his future than the Orlando media did. The wound of losing was still bleeding and hadn't had a chance to scab over. The fact that it was a loss to his hometown Atlanta Hawks was even more galling. Atlanta, after all, is the team Dwight grew up following. He remembers the Hawks as the perennially hapless franchise that has been irrelevant for generations. Besides, Dwight is not obligated to tell the media what his mindset is and what his plans are. But, hopefully, he feels differently about Magic management.

ahh, they weren't going no where before the trade or after the trade. That team needs a new look. Get rid of SVG and change the system a little.

Why would Orlando want Bynum?

because they have shaq leaving for nothing in the back of their mind. also he probably is the second best back to the basket true center in the NBA....but he will get hurt walking on the plane

Orlando's ownernship and management needs to get real. Put an extension sheet in front of Howard. If he hesitates to sign ask him which teams he'd like to get traded to and get to work. Lakers will be more than happy to offer a package around Bynum and anybody else which I think will benefit Orlando in the long run. Howard aint stupid. He knows the cast around him is not championship material and can't be improved overnight.
