The Dwight Howard situation is cloudier than it was months ago, and it seems that no one has a clear view on where the league's best big man will end up.
The Magic have come out and denied the reports, but something tells me that there may be some validity to those statements because of the failures that both men have experienced during their tenures.
Nevertheless, the Magic will have to make a decision on Howard before the March 15th deadline or the team will risk getting nothing back in return.
The New Jersey (Brooklyn) Nets, Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat have all been labeled as potential suitors for Dwight in the future, but what about a team that plays in Maidson Square Garden?
The answer to that question to me would be "yes" and the reality of it is something that more people should be talking about.
In my proposed trade, the Magic would send Dwight Howard and Hedo Turkoglu to the Knicks for Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and a second-round pick. The Knicks would receive a big-time upgrade at the center position as well as having a legitimate replacement at the forward position for Carmelo Anthony.
The Magic would receive one of the league's best scorers and clutch players as well as adding Chandler, who can hold his own defensively and on the glass.
This deal makes sense for both parties because it would provide a breath of fresh air for two disgruntled situations while still allowing both teams to make a solid run towards the playoffs.
This would be the best trade that Magic general manger Otis Smith could possibly receive back and it is a deal that he should try to act on as quickly as possible.
