multiple writers are saying the mavs would only be able to offer howard - williams a $25 split between them. i don't see any way in heaven or hell they'd go for that. meanwhile howard is still offended by what kobe bryant said about him being option two or three if he joins the lakers. nets are definitely in the drivers seat here.
biggest danger right now with the trade deadline in two weeks is that otis smith decides to take the nets last offer for howard, which really sucked for us. howard might push for that to happen because he can get paid more money that way as opposed to what he can sign for as a FA.
need howard to join the nets in free agency if we're going to have a chance to put a team together around he and williams.
