Celtics trade Rajon Rondo + Jeff Green for Chris Paul

with KG and Ray's contract coming off the books, The Celtics have a ton of cap space to make a move for Dwightt Howard.

CP3 + Dwight + Pierce + KG + Ray

You should include Miami in the scenario as well. If they fail again next year, I could see Lebron or Wade being offered for Dwight. No way would Orlando team up Lebron, Wade, and Howard together just to get Bosh back, so it would have to be Lebron or Wade, most likely Lebron since he's younger and not injury prone plus Miami probably has some loyalty towards Wade.

I'm thinking between the 3:

Howard and Arenas to the Lakers in a sign-and-trade for Gasol and Bynum, teaming up with Kobe, Odom, and Artest?
Howard signing straight up with the Celtics teaming up with Rondo and Pierce, with Ray Allen and possibly KG coming back for cheap deals?
Howard in a sign-and-trade to Miami for Lebron?

I'd probably say the Celtics deal is more realistic, but the Heat deal is the best scenario for Howard AND the Magic.

With a Melo/Stat/Howard front court, you don't need role players.

I hope he doesn't join the Lakers. He'll be the best player on the team but guess who'll get the most credit if they're successful...

its clearly the lakers. the celts have 9 players on their books (including sheed and shaq and the QO for Green) and have no young assets outside of avery bradley.

What can they trade for him? a huge expirer and two dudes from purdue ( I actually really like their picks)?

The lakers have a good mix of solid vets and reasonable fill in pieces to make it work.

That being said, I expect orlando to call the bluff and hope the new CBA makes it much more financially beneficial for howard to re-up
