Christian Petersen/Getty Images(ORLANDO, Fla.) — Magic center Dwight Howard still wants out of Orlando, according to the Orlando Sentinel. The five-time NBA All-Star told the newspaper that “nothing has changed” in regards to his trade request.  

So which team does Howard has his sights set on?

“His first choice is New Jersey-slash-Brooklyn,” ESPN NBA insider Chris Broussard said. “He loves the business opportunities that Brooklyn will provide when they go there next season. He loves Deron Williams. They want to play together. They’ve been talking. But he also realizes that just Deron and himself in New Jersey, that team isn’t probably any better than the one he’s on in Orlando right now.”

In nine games this season, Howard has averaged 18.6 points, 14.6 rebounds and two assists.
