The Rockets turned down a trade offer for Dwight Howard, the News learned.

The Rockets turned down the Hornets’ trade offer for Dwight Howard, who is still the most likely big name on the move Thursday.

Charlotte offered Al Jefferson and Spencer Hawes for the center, league sources told the News’ Frank Isola. The Rockets and Howard’s agent, Dan Fegan, are working hard to make a trade.

Thursday’s trade deadline is 3 p.m.

After Houston’s practice Wednesday, Howard said he didn’t “pay attention” to trade talk and he’s only focused on his performance.

“I came out here to Arizona and spent some time here in the mountains, and I got away,” Howard said. “I just trained, and I got ready for the second half of the season. No matter what’s being said, the only thing I can control is what I do on the floor. That’s been my only focus.”

The eight-time All-Star spent eight seasons with the Orlando Magic before heading to the Lakers for a season. He’s been with the Rockets since 2013-14.

12:44 p.m.: The Cavs made a move to add a shooter, acquiring former Knicks first-round pick Channing Frye from the Orlando Magic, a source tells Frank Isola.

Frye, a 6-foot-10 forward, gives Cleveland much needed perimeter shooting off the bench.

The Cavs traded away Anderson Varejao, a LeBron James favorite, to the Magic, who then shipped the Brazilian forward to the Trail Blazers for undisclosed draft picks and an expiring contract.
