Now that the Orlando Magic are finished hosting this year's NBA All-Star game, the Eastern Conference's fifth-place team has to figure out if it's going to deal Dwight Howard or not.

Howard's mother told TNT Craig Sager that she'd like her 6-11 little fella to stay in Orlando, according to the Sporting News.

But the 26-year-old isn't under mama's thumb anymore. "That's my mom's opinion," Howard said after the game, according to the Orlando Sentinel. "… I don't want to talk about that stuff right now."

The Magic has till March 15 to deal Howard. Team CEO Alex Martins insisted Sunday night that the team has not made a decision about whether they will trade Howard, the Sentinel reports, adding that the Magic apparently are holding out hope they can hold on to him until the end of the season and convince him to stay.

Meanwhile, has it from multiple sources that the Magic will be "aggressively" pursuing eight-time All-Star Steve Nash from the Phoenix Suns before the deadline.
