The Houston Rockets have begun contacting teams about a trade involving Dwight Howard.
Howard plans on becoming a free agent this offseason and both sides have uncertainty on his place with the franchise.
The Rockets are working with Howard’s agent, Dan Fegan, on possible destinations.
"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 in a statement.
Howard was reached by ESPN and he confirmed Fegan's statement.
"Dan's statement is true," said Howard. "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."
