Magic owner Rich DeVos is aiming to keep Dwight Howard in Orlando.
"We love him, and he respects us, so we talk," DeVos said of Howard.
"When you've lived as long I've lived, you see things from a bigger lens and you try to share that with the young guys coming up, including being patient."
Howard has openly questioned the lack of talent surrounding him.
"We talk about all that," DeVos said. "We want to win, too. We all want to win, OK? I don't think he tells you anything he doesn't tell me. You can't change anything until he says he's going to stay. Then you can do a lot of things."
