Per Alex Kennedy of Hoops World, Dwight Howard told Orlando Magic general manager Rob Henniganhe still wants out of Orlando.
Meeting between Dwight Howard and Rob Hennigan is over. Howard wouldn’t drop his trade demand, per source. Magic’s last-ditch effort failed.

Howard also reportedly told Hennigan he’d leave as a free agent after next season if the Magic do not trade him.
There is still no rush to trade Howard. Camp doesn’t start until October and although it may be difficult for fans to swallow, they could keep him until the trade deadline.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Hennigan told Howard “he’s trying to trade him but finding no acceptable deal.”
