Default Trade! Wizards get Josh Howard, Mavericks get Caron Butler in 7-player deal

UPDATE: Trade is official. Exact details here: http://www.insidehoops.com/butler-ho...e-021310.shtml


Quote:
The Mavericks appear to have agreed on the major points of a trade that will send Josh Howard, Drew Gooden, Quinton Ross and James Singleton to Washington for Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson.

The deal is not done. But a source said that the pieces of the trade have been tentatively agreed upon.

The trade would require league approval, which could take until after All-Star Weekend.

The Mavericks and Wizards have been trade partners before, when Dallas acquired Devin Harris and Jerry Stackhouse for Antawn Jamison in 2004. That was a trade that both teams viewed as a success.

Washington apparently has become resigned to the fact that Haywood, their center who is having a solid season, would not re-sign this summer when he is a free agent.

That, plus the fact that the Wizards will save a ton of money if the deal goes down, is their motivation.

The Mavericks drafted Howard in 2003 and he has enjoyed great successes, although he has been prone to controversial moments.

He's been struggling this year to recover from off-season ankle surgery but has played well lately. Next season, his contract is a team option, which could yield a payroll savings of $11 million for the Wizards.

Heard it was just Butler and Stevenson for Howard and Ross or Thomas. Makes no sense for the Wizards to add Haywood for Gooden...

People are that hard up for cash that they want Caron over Iggy? The Rockets if they take the Philly trade now would have easily one of the leagues best rosters next year if Yao's 100%.

Without adding in Haywood I would think Dallas would have a lot less incentive to go for the deal. Caron alone and losing Howard isn't putting them over the top.

That's kind of pathetic for the Wizards. Give away two very good players for nothing. Literally nothing. But don't have to pay Butler next year. Good going.

Jamison doesn't seem to be part of the deal. They played together years ago and it worked ok though, but Jamison wanted to be more than just a 6th man.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Boston will compete with Cleveland for Jamison

It's ok, I guess you're so used to see trades involving Jamison lately that you thought this was another one

I think that's just Boston trying to screw Cavs chances of getting him. Do you think Boston really want him?

I don't really care for him but I'm sure he'd help.
