Thread: The Dwight Howard deal

  1. #1

    Default The Dwight Howard deal

    Nets are set to give up 3 first round picks plus Lopez, Humphries and Brooks.

    I realize he's the best at what he does but I'm not sure he's worth that. That's 3 good to very good players plus 3 unknown commodities in the picks in exchange for 1 very good to great player who appears to be more high maintenance than your average teenage girlfriend.

    I do it everyday, 3 good players, 3 mid to late 1st rounders for the best center in the game. Without question or hesitation. Nets could win the East, if this happens, imo.

    If this clown had kept his mouth shut last year and not signed that extension then couldn't he have outright signed here because of NJ's cap space? Instead, they are forced to gut their team for him.

    The Gerald Wallace thing looked to be a joke, huge mistake giving up an only top 3 protected pick, paying him 10 million a year....now it looks like a nice piece to the puzzle, really crazy.

    The Nets won't win the east this year. They aren't wade and lebron, they still need more pieces, like a 4 and some bench. What are the odds Orlando doesnt want Humphries? Because I do..

    Please the nets are becoming my frontrunner for the heat killers next year.....

    You got Howard who can dominate bosh, Wallace can attempt to guard Lebron, wade had to guard Johnson, leaving d will to impose his will on the heats PGs! That's scary! They can have some of us on their bench and still be contenders for a ring.

    Why do all these new Big 3 teams have to be in the Eastern conference? It kinda forces Indiana to match Hibbert (which we should). If this trade goes down, I'm all for Nash, B. Roy, Gordon, or bust.

    If you can keep deron Williams you give virtually anything you can for Howard. The Heat, not just with Lebron but with Shaq have taught us tha given the chance to gave 2 genuine top 10 players, you have to grab it. You can fill the pieces around them later.

    Hmmmm. I truly hope Orlando gets close, then says **** you and trades his *** to Russia's national team for that FPS Russia guy on youtube.


    Hate seeing a petulant child like him getting his way...yet I love the NBA. Odd.

    EDIT:
    @KBergCBS
    Orlando GM Rob Hennigan also trying to engage the Hawks, Rockets, Lakers and possibly Mavs in Howard talks. Full-court press.

    @KBergCBS
    The Brooklyn scenario isn't imminent, and it isn't the only one Orlando is working on, sources say.

    For Nets-Magic to progress on a Dwight Howard deal, a 3rd team needed to take Kris Humphries in a sign-and-trade, league source tells Y!

    Wasnt this somebody's dream scenario?

    Really? AK47? This could work for Brooklyn.

    Very interesting. So the Nets are relying on Lopez and Humphries' cooperation in S&Ts. Seems very tricky to pull off.

    If you're Lopez or Hump, why do you sit around and wait for a possible S&T? That can get torpedoed at any time if the other guy gets signed to a deal by another team? Wouldn't you rather look for your own FA deals in the market? Lopez at least is RFA, so he'll have to consider the possibility of Nets matching. But Hump is UFA. Note also that there are no longer financial advantages to a S&T vs signing with a team outright. Both Lopez and Hump will have to really want to go to Orlando (or to a third team that will provide assets to ORL) if they're going along with this.

    We have the cap space to sign Humphries outright without having to give up assets in a S&T. There's no advantage to us to participate in this deal.

    But who? All of Brooklyn's next few years of first round picks are going to Orlando. Unless you want Brooklyn's 2019 first round pick. Orlando sure as hell isn't going to send any of their first round picks. A second round pick isn't going to do it either.

    Not a bad idea! Sure, we'll do it, but you have to include one of those first round picks you're throwing around!

    They keep enough and you are talking about a superstar and the best center in the game and he is young. There were many teams that would have given up just about everyone to get him including Chicago who would give everyone not named Rose........ Look at it this way, is Orlando a better team after this trade? I do not think that they are but they will be different.

    By the way, if this happens, the Pacers just moved down a peg in the East.......
