Dwight Howard's agent has denied reports that Howard had decided he would sign an extension with the Los Angeles Lakers if he's traded to the Lakers, ESPN.com reported.
"Dwight's position has remained unchanged since the end of this past season," Dan Fegan of LaGardere Unlimited told ESPN.com. "He fully intends to explore free agency at the end of next season, regardless of what team trades for him, including Brooklyn."
The Nets say they never insisted that Howard commit to an extension as a prerequisite for acquiring him.
The Nets were the team Howard preferred, but since talks with them broke down, the Lakers have been the team that has shown the most interest in the Orlando Magic center.
