While his team plays through a terrible stretch, Magic center Dwight Howard has been telling reporters in various cities that he wouldn't rule out signing anywhere when it's expected that he will opt out of his contract and becomes a free agent after this season.
That may have raised a flicker of hope in places like Chicago and Boston, but the Orlando Sentinel reports that Howard's list of preferred trade destinations remains New Jersey, Los Angeles (the Lakers) and Dallas. The Nets have already offered a trade package revolving around injured center Brook Lopez, while the Lakers could offer Andrew Bynum or Pau Gasol. It's unclear what the Mavs could offer.
The Celtics don't have much in the way of trade unless Orlando suddenly decides that it needs Rajon Rondo, but that wouldn't get it done on its own. The Bulls actually could...
Boston College announced its football recruiting class Wednesday, national signing day. Frank Spaziani's 16-player crop is not highly regarded, but the Eagles did fill some holes.
"We evaluated these 16 players the same way we evaluated the six BC alumni playing in the Super Bowl," Spaziani said at an afternoon press conference to announce the signings. "We use the same system."
Added Spaziani: "Fans should be excited about this class in they are young, energetic, talented, and they fit the mold [of BC student-athletes]."
The most heralded recruit is Win Homer of Christchurch, Va., a 6-foot-5, 245-pound offensive lineman. Steven Daniels, a linebacker from the same Cincinnati school that produced Luke Kuechly, comes on board after spending a semester prepping at Worcester Academy.
The Eagles also got a boost when Michael Giacone of St. Peter's Prep in New Jersey chose the Eagles after originally selecting...
WILMINGTON -- Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was absent from the team's practice Wednesday at Ristuccia Arena with a lower body injury after catching a rut late in the third period of Tuesday's win over the Senators.
Coach Claude Julien said that McQuaid came back to the bench "a little shaken up" after the play. The team hopes McQuaid can return to the ice Thursday against the Hurricanes, but it seems the defenseman's status is up in the air.
"He got injured last night, so we just felt that it was better to keep him off the ice today," Julien said after Wednesday's practice. "We'll reevaluate his situation tomorrow morning."
The Bruins will be getting defenseman Andrew Ference back from a three-game suspension Thursday, so in the event that McQuaid is unable to go, the B's would not need to call a defenseman up from Providence.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Speaking to the media on Wednesday at University Park Hotel on the campus of IUPUI, Logan Mankins was asked about the Jets and their late-season collapse in 2011. The Jets lost their last three games to finish 8-8 and miss the postseason.
"The Jets, we know they're full of hot air. We see where they are right now," Mankins told Brian Costello of the New York Post. "They just like to say whatever they feel like saying and sometimes that can come back to bite you in the butt."
LaDainian Tomlinson suggested in a January 19 interview with "Inside the NFL" that locker room turmoil played a factor in the Jets' failures, and called the relationship between Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes "as bad as any I've ever been around." Tomlinson added that the brash culture fostered by Rex...
INDIANAPOLIS -- Patriots starting left tackle Matt Light said he has recovered from his stomach illness that kept him out of media day on Tuesday and is ready to join the team.
"Feeling great. I've got my coffee and we're ready to go," Light said Wednesday, before joking about missing "Media Day" at Lucas Oil Stadium. "Really torn up about that. Lost a lot of sleep last night and will never get that opportunity back but I'm going to move on."
Light also spoke for the first time since Osi Umenyiora claimed that Light did things to block him during games that caused their on-field scuffles in their last three meetings.
"It is what it is," Light said. "It doesn't really bother me. I think everything is going to work out fine. We'll let the game play out. On the field, that's all I can say. I don't know the guy, personally. We're not pen pals. Everything we've ever experience is on the...
