Steve Nash Trade Rumors: Dwight Howard Reportedly Asked Magic To Trade For Nash

Despite the fact that the Phoenix Suns have said they have no interest in trading point guard Steve Nash unless he wants to be traded and despite the fact that Nash himself he will not ask for one, the rumors keep going. Recently, it was rumored that the Dallas Mavericks would reunite Dirk Nowitski with Nash by trading Lamar Odom.

Now there is a report from HoopsWorld that says that center Dwight Howard really wants Steve Nash passing him the ball.

The Orlando Magic has made offers for Nash in the past and sources close to the situation say that they'll attempt to acquire the 16-year veteran in the next two weeks. Dwight Howard has asked the front office to pursue Nash and sources close to Howard believe he won't exercise his early termination option if the team is able to acquire Nash and re-sign him this summer.

Nash to Howard would really be fun to watch. Of course, what does Orlando have to trade the Suns? The report seems to indicate that the Magic would be willing to part with anything that the Suns might want or need.

Could Nash end up playing elsewhere before the trade deadline? We will soon find out.
