The Magic are "not in a rush to do anything," regarding the potential trade of Dwight Howard.</p>
The Magic reportedly have no interest in a
package built around Brook Lopez and Gerald Wallace, and it's tough to
blame them. That's not a very enticing offer to land an elite center,
and Howard's price tag should be sky high considering he's a
franchise-altering player. The rumors won't be going by the wayside at
any point soon.
According to David Aldridge, the Lakers are "dangling" Pau Gasol in a potential trade for Chris Paul.</p>
Aldridge writes that Gasol "would almost
certainly" be flipped elsewhere, and that the league continues to be in a
standstill with the Clippers about the inclusion of Eric Gordon in a
trade. New Orleans has no interest in a package built around Rajon
Rondo, so the Celtics are out of the picture. It appears the L.A. teams
are battling for Paul, although the Warriors have still expressed
interest in dealing for CP3.
