New Jersey Nets general manager Billy King denied reports that his club was in negotiations to trade for Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard, the Associated Press reports.

"I'll go on the record that I haven't talked to Orlando about a trade since February, right before the trade deadline," King said at a press conference, according to the Associated Press. "I have not had any conversations at all with my good friend Otis (Smith, the Magic general manager).

"So, I don't know where that is coming from."
