In the latest installment of As Dwight Howard Turns, the Orlando Magic All-Star center still loves Orlando and is not seeking a trade, according to a source close to Howard.

Said source told WESH-TV's Larry Ridley that Howard -- who is rehabbing from back surgery in, ahem, Los Angeles -- is "hurt by all the negativity surrounding him (and) doesn't understand why he's blamed for everything that happens inside the (Magic) organization."

The source added that Howard is waiting to see how the Magic improve.

The most recent development in the Howard storyline came two weeks ago, when Chris Sheridan of reported that the Magic had decided to trade Howard.
