Report: Dwight Howard to skip own youth basketball camp

Dwight Howard will not attend his annual youth basketball camp in Orlando, reports the Orlando Sentinel's Mike Bianchi.

The Magic center, who has been the subject of trade rumors throughout the offseason, typically attends the camp that bears his name. But this year, in what will likely be an unpopular move, he will skip the event. Andrew Nicholson, Orlando's first-round pick in the NBA Draft, will replace Howard.

Camp members pay a $199 fee to attend. While they will still receive the same level of instruction from the coaches at the camp, the chance to meet Howard, Orlando's best-known player, was likely one of the motivating factors for many to attend.

Howard, who will reportedly stay in Los Angeles to continue rehabbing his injured back, will almost certainly receive criticism for the decision. He has been criticized for the way he has handled his trade demands, and this decision could further hurt his popularity.
