08:12 AM ET 03.14 | Dwight Howard may prefer to stay, but it appears at least someone was preparing for the possibility he might wind up in New Jersey. Late Tuesday night, a link began circulating on Twitter to a page on the NBA's online store that would allow you to buy a New Jersey Nets t-shirt, as if Dwight Howard -- of the Orlando Magic currently, but not expected to be after the season, and also kind of in limbo until Thursday's trade deadline -- was now a member of that organization. It has since been taken down. ... [All] signs point to his wanting to be in New Jersey next season, so this curious quirk in the NBA Store's online inventory has, of course, raised some eyebrows.

Howard will be on another team next season... but I have a feeling ownership and Orlando's money people have worked out the numbers and determined that it's better to keep Dwight for a playoff run this season than to get rid of him for some assets that may mature. It's all about the money bag. I'd be shocked if they trade him...

If he ends up with the nets, this will all look very suspicious. Stern better hope (or rig) that he doesn't end up in NJ or else his league will lose even more credibility

You are on fire.

New day same Stern behind the door tactics... The leak is out so I guess he is going to the Nets. Orlando should at least try to get all they can get for him. A playoff push or a hot cup of nothing in the summer Orlando the choice is yours.
