DALLAS -- This past Monday, a report surfaced out of New York that the Dallas Mavericks are on a short list to acquire Knicks restricted free agent point guard Jeremy Lin.
And now today, a new wrinkle has been added to the equation.
Center Dwight Howard wants the Orlando Magic to trade him, according to SheridanHoops.com. The Mavs, Brooklyn Nets, Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers and LA Clippers are the teams reportedly on Howard's wish list.
In other words, get ready for a long summer of rumors, innuendos and flat-out lies as teams try to improve their organization and get in position to win the 2013 NBA championship.
