07:58 AM ET 02.04 | When Dwight Howard first demanded a trade in December, the Orlando Magic gave him permission to speak with the New Jersey Nets, Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers. While Howard dodges all questions related to his future, it seems that the 26-year-old is zeroing in on the Nets. The Lakers have already been informed that Howard won't sign a long-term deal in Los Angeles, according to sources close to the situation. Multiple sources believe Howard will force his way to the Nets and he certainly has leverage, just like Carmelo Anthony had last year when he would only agree to sign an extension with the New York Knicks.

QUOTE(#10):

I don't understand why Howard is not interested in LA. I mean -it's LA !! You have a contending team, a strong tradition, good ownership and management, plus Hollywood, the great California weather, and everything else that comes with it. Maybe it simply comes down to the fact that he does not want to be seen as following in Shaq's footsteps.

Or he doesn't want to be second fiddle to Kobe
