Default Nets are set to offer Brook Lopez and draft picks to Orlando for Dwight Howard

Quote:
ESPN reports that the Nets are set to offer Brook Lopez and draft picks to the Orlando Magic for Dwight Howard, and are willing to take on Hedo Turkoglu's contract to get a deal done. New Jersey would need to include a smaller contract or two, but would have available cap space after waiving Travis Outlaw via the amnesty clause.

It takes two sides to make a deal, of course, and Marc Stein and Chad Ford write that it's "unclear if the Magic can be convinced to start seriously considering trade scenarios for Howard this early." They also write that the Nets will still go forward in pursuit of free agent big men Nene and Tyson Chandler.

smith has made some pretty wacky decisions the last couple years, so who knows when he'll decide to finally trade howard? and who knows what he'll look for in return?

that being said, sign me up for this trade! (our votes count, right? )

Quote:
Chris Broussard in a post-midnight tweet reports the following: "Nets have emerged as No. 1 choice for Dwight Howard, multiple sources say. D12 is expected to ask Magic to trade him to NJ."

Moreover, reports Broussard, "Nets still pursuing Nene in case deal for Howard falls through. NJ offering Brook Lopez & 2 1st rnd picks."

The trade, if it worked out, would give the Nets two of the NBA's seven best players. That is all.

Me too. As a Nets fan though, I'm like scared to be to happy because if something suddenly just happens (like what just happened to the Lakers), it'll kill me.

This would truly be awesome. Not going to get my hopes up right now though for fear of being let down (again) .

Imagine that tandem of D-Will/Dwight. The best center by far, coupled with an elite point guard, a true pure shooter like Morrow, hopefully Hump will be back on a reasonable contract, and we'll see how Marshon pans out, etc.. To say the least, that would be the first Nets team to look forward to in 5 seasons. Don't want to speak too soon, but this could be a major step in the right direction.

If you can land Howard East is going to be extremely strong.

Heat (Big 3)
Knicks (Melo,Amare,Chandler)
Bulls
Nets (D-Will,Dwight)
Celtics (Big 4)
Hawks

D-Will + Dwight guarantee you a playoff spot and you could be able to do much damage with that team.

If this deal goes through we may finally have "the battle of New York".
May the better team win.

Default Re: Nets are set to offer Brook Lopez and draft picks to Orlando for Dwight Howard

very interesting situation: howard has apparently chosen the nets as his next destination, and otis smith still seems to think he can find a way to keep the man.

but with little to trade, and with howard's mind made up (is it really true?), the advantage is definitely shifting towards the nets.

what may suck: having to pay turkoglu $11mil+ for the next three years and losing whoever the nets will have to throw in to make the trade work. but oh well. still a much better way to move in to brooklyn than the possible disaster alternative: no d-will and no howard going in to barclays...

David Aldridge reports that the Magic are "contemplating filing tampering charges against two unnamed NBA teams for illegal contact with its franchise center." Sam Amick tweets that the two teams are the Nets and Rockets, and furtherthat the root of the charges against the Nets is "is alleged meeting between Dwight and Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov on Thursday."

Just our god damn luck.
