Magic Rumors: Rob Hennigan Must Stop Changing Terms and Deal Dwight Howard
Apparently, Dwight Howard isn't the only one in the Orlando Magic organization who can't make up his mind, as general manager Rob Hennigan has reportedly been frustrating trade talks with last-minute changes.
According to FoxSportsOhio.com's Sam Amico:
According to sources, the Magic have frustrated potential trading partners by continuously changing terms at the last minute. This supposedly dates back to their dealings with the Nets a few weeks back, when Nets GM Billy King felt an agreement that would send Howard to Brooklyn had been finalized, sources said.
Thus, we continue on with the NBA's "Summer of Indecision."
I understand that the Magic are trying to get the most out of Howard—the best player on the trade market these days—but their tactics are more likely to hurt them than help them.
Hennigan needs to quit playing around and trade Howard already.
If he isn't careful, the Magic will be stuck with a irritable, seven-foot center next season who doesn't want to be there. Last year was bad enough, the way Howard's attitude submarined the team. If this carries into the 2012-2013 season, things are going to get downright ugly.
Hennigan and the Magic have been playing this thing wrong from the start. They have been operating under the premise that they have all the cards.
Which side needs to get a deal done more, the Magic or their potential trade parter?
They couldn't be more wrong.
They need to trade Howard far more desperately than the Los Angeles Lakers, the Brooklyn Nets or Houston Rockets need to trade for him. Bringing Howard in would be a boon for the teams, of that there's no doubt, but they aren't going to bend over backwards and acquiesce to Hennigan's unreasonable behavior.
It's time that Hennigan and the Magic start to realize this truth. The time for playing games is over. They must stop messing around with other teams and deal Howard before it's too late.
