Dwight Howard Rumors: Mavericks Still In Running

For the last year, Dwight Howard's ultimate fate has been the biggest domino hanging over NBA player movement. There's been twists, turns, opt-ins and accusations of blackmails, and it doesn't seem like the soap opera is set to end anytime soon.

According to a report from Ken Berger of CBS Sports, the Dallas Mavericks are one of five teams still in the running for Howard:

The Mavericks don't have nearly the trade assets of the Rockets or the Lakers, but they're the only of the three teams Howard originally asked to be traded for who have the cap space to sign him in free agency.

It doesn't seem like the Orlando Magic would risk letting their All-NBA center walk for nothing, but they haven't been very proactive in trying to move him. It's a situation that is "fluid", to say the least.

For all the latest news and notes on the Mavericks free agency plans, stay tuned to the SB Nation Dallas story-stream as well as Mavs Moneyball.
