Dwight Howard Rumors: Orlando Magic Center Says He'll Only Re-Sign with 1 Team

Andrew BurtonCorrespondent IIIJuly 2, 2012

For over a year now, rumors have been circulating as to where disgruntled Orlando Magic superstar Dwight Howard would be traded to. The New Jersey Nets, Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks were all active in the Howard sweepstakes.  Well now it's being reported that Howard will only sign with one team.

In an article by Yahoo! Sports expert Adrian Wojnarowski, we learned that in a phone interview Howard said, "There's only one team on my list and if I don't get traded there, I'll play the season out and explore my free agency after that."

Although Howard did not specifically mention the one team that he'd sign an extension with, many people think they have the answer. 

Earlier reports from Chris Broussard on presented that Howard had requested a trade to the Brooklyn Nets before the season started. Going back as far as last December, New Jersey/Brooklyn has been Dwight's preferred destination; it might be safe to assume that the one team that Dwight would sign with is the Nets.

One would have to imagine that if the Nets are the team that Dwight will re-sign with, Deron Williams will also remain with the team—forming the dynamic duo that could put Brooklyn on the map.
