08:08 AM ET 05.25 | Though a report out of Orlando has since disputed as much, there is some sentiment for believing the Magic are ready to move Dwight Howard. A plugged-in league source tells SheridanHoops.com that the feeling is mutual, and Orlando is prepared to trade him sooner rather than later. The source said that when Magic team president traveled to Michigan last weekend to speak in person with owner Rich DeVos, the conclusion was reached that not only was it time for Stan Van Gundy and Otis Smith to go, but Howard, too. That means the Magic will be proactive in soliciting deals once next week's draft lottery results are in, clearing up the lay of the land in terms of which teams can offer the most value in return.

Just sayin......With no gm,how exactly are they doing this?They're going to let an 'interim' underling assistant make that move?

The article states they are soliciting deals for Howard. I'm sure they'll have someone in place as GM before consummating one.

Buyer beware. Howard is coming off season-ending back injury and I have a feeling he will never be the same again. Now I know he has to pass a physical in order for a trade to go through but won't predict his overall back health. The fact that Orlando wants to trade him now after all they've been through as husband and wife tells me he's used goods. Buyer beware. New Jersey beware. Lakers bewarned!!!!

Guess they wanna get Bynum/Pau while the stove is still hot. Lakers will be desperate to take Howards regardless of his back's prognosis. AND dump Turk's contract.
Smart move.

He would probably work well with Rondo, but I don't see it happening unless he waits to sign as a free agent because Boston doesn't have anything the Magic would want.
