The Rockets are working with Dan Fegan, Howard’s agent, about the most possible destinations. Howard has plans of becoming a free agent this off-season, and both sides are not certain about his place, according to Real GM.
“I’m not privy to what the Rockets are doing or not doing with respect to Dwight Howard. What I can say, with 100 percent certainty, is that Dwight has not and has never asked the Rockets for a trade. And neither have I,” said Fegan to ESPN.
The Rockets are the most disappointing team in this edition of NBA, with a 27-28 record heading in to the All-Star break.
“Dan’s statement is true. I have not asked the Rockets to trade me. Nor have I talked about right trades. I want to win. I want this situation to work. I chose this team. And I’m not running because we have been faced with some adversity,” revealed Howard when asked by ESPN about his stance on the Rockets.
Howard and All-Star guard James Harden met the Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey after their shock defeat in the hands of the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday to discuss Houston’s current woes.
