If you're the Orlando Magic...???
It's the middle of the 2011-2012 NBA season. The Magic are once again thoroughly seated in the middle of the pack in the NBA Eastern Conference. This time in the 5th seed behind Miami, Chicago, Boston, and an even more improved NY team. The Hawks are dead on your heels for the 5th seed as you only hold a 1 game lead on the team that upset you in the first round of the playoffs the year before.
Dwight Howard is once again a strong MVP candidate. However, you have been unable to make any other significant roster moves to lift the team back to legitimate title contention and Dwight Howard has still not signed an extension. Your superstar center has given no direct indication that he will leave in the offseason, yet not signing an extension speaks volumes.
The trade deadline is literally hours away and for weeks practically every team in the league has inquired about the big man's availability. In a last minute surprise, the Chicago Bulls offer both Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer for Howard. (along with whatever other player(s) you're willing to part with to make the salaries work)
Would you trade Howard to the Bulls for Boozer and Noah, two talented big men who are contracted until 2015 and 2016 respectively or risk loosing Howard 2012 free agency?
