Via Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:

In what could be considered a risky upheaval for such a crucial time of the season, Dwight Howard has left his long-time agent, Aaron Goodwin, multiple sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Howard’s next move is unclear, although sources say he planned to lean more toward letting some extended family and friends manage his business.

Cleveland’s LeBron James left Goodwin in 2005 with a similar plan.

Shocking.

Yeah, the odds of Howard leaving the Magic are low.

I think he goes to Golden State... He's voiced a passion to run the point and he loves the three point shot. I think the temptation of running the point and being able to launch threes for a team like Golden State will be too much for him to pass up..

Or with a new arena, being an hour flight away from home, and in a great city that many pros come to and never leave, will be enough for Dwight to stay in Orlando. I'm not so worried.

I'd have to agree with derekk's comment, wholeheartedly. I think Howard's desire and personality aren't going to be affected by the change. Having been able to interact with Howard for about six months or so when I've been in town, I know first-hand that his heart is in Orlando and his goal is to bring a championship to the city.

Dwight leaving Orlando worries me least of all the superstars in the league, he's repeatedly voiced pleasure in the franchise team and it's front office. What I'm more worried about is, how some NBA players have friends that are actually bad influences, but Howard has such a different disposition than other players that I think he's going to place himself with trustworthy friends. Family in the mix is usually a good thing too.

All I'm worried about is if this will have any effect on him staying in Orlando.
