Dwight Howard's name has been all over the news lately as trade rumors have once again picked up full force surrounding the superstar center.

It doesn't help matters that the Orlando Magic, Howard's current team, has gone from a perennial contender to a team that has struggled to score even 60 points in a game over the last week.

Yes, you read that right. Sixty points.

Last Monday, Jan. 23, the Magic scored a franchise-low 56 points against the Boston Celtics, who were missing Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo, among others.

Orlando is now mired in a four-game losing streak in which it is averaging just 76 points per contest. The slump forced Howard into a clubhouse rant in which he said he felt like players on the Magic didn't even act like they wanted to play.

So it's no surprise trade talks have picked up again.

Josh Robbins from the Orlando Sentinel joined David Kaplan on Tuesday's Chicago Tribune Live to discuss the possibility of Howard coming to the Bulls.

"I don't think much has changed," Robbins said. "Right now, Dwight's list of preferred destinations remains the Nets, Lakers and Mavericks. Those are the only three teams that the Magic have given Howard's rep permission to speak with. And so while Dwight might say -- and I'm paraphrasing here -- 'if God tells me to go to the Bulls, I'll go to the Bulls,' that's not really saying much. That's not really something that's new.

"So at this point, I don't really see his position changing, which probably bodes ill for Bulls fans, unfortunately for them."

There's plenty more from Robbins so be sure to check out the video.
