Dwight Howard & Phil Jackson
Neither - Stick with Brook
Neither - A trade that upgrades the Nets 4 spot
And he's playing pretty darn good

IMO, I think one of the main problems that we have is D-Will and Joe miss way to many shots and they really need to improve that. Their FG% are not good at all especially from Joe since he's suppose to be the teams "shooter". If we can get better scoring from other players than D-Will can shot less and be the floor captain that we really need. He should be leading the league in assist if we can just find better shooters but since we don't have that, that's the reason why he shoots more than he needs to.

It's Blatche i am worried about. I want to know that he will keep his head on straight now that Avery is gone. I am also worried about Crash. He cannot stay in front of anyone these days. He is an excellent help defender but Melo was embarrassing him and so do most quick SF that we face. It is clear he is a shadow of what he was in Charlotte. I hope the Nets monitor his minutes
I want morrow back
I am not sure how excited I am to bring Howard onto the Nets unless we get a solid back up Center or a proven scoring PF. First off lets ignore these last few months for Dwight 'cause he is probably the overall best center in the league once 100% healthy and he is not. However Lopez right now is a huge part of making our offense better and we are getting closer in establishing more of a consistant flow on the offensive end. Howard is a different player that the Nets players will have to learn new plays that better suits his stregths. There is a way, I think, 'round that though:
Start Tele at PF: He bring a scoring touch to the Nets that can be really good, but he is not proven and you don't want to rush and hope; you want to develop and PJ seems to be starting to play him more. I would rather see him come off the bench.
Start Blatche at PF: I would love that, but we need a solid back up C to do that and I do not want to see Hump or Evans backing up Dwight!
Start Hump or Evans: Not next to Dwigh...No!
Start Wallace at PF: No need to play someone consistantly out of position.
If this trade does happen, IMO we have to get a solid back up center so we can slide Blatche to PF. That would be the easiest way to make a Howard trade to the Nets a success!
Dwight isn't going anywhere. This whole thread is a joke. I'll remember to bump this after the trade deadline and after free agency. DWIGHT HOWARD ISN'T GOING ANYWHERE. HE'S GOING TO BE A LAKER.
I say don't even bother trading for him. He's going to test the waters once the season is over so we'll have a good chance to get him for nothing (meaning no trade). Yes he'll be leaving a lot of money on the table should he not sign with the Lakers but if he's not getting along with Kobe then he wouldn't want to play there.
Let's say we do get him in the off season, my question is this, can he play PF while keeping Lopez as the center. What do you guys think?
You do not take the best C in the game out of his position
The Howard thing is funny because now it is the Nets in a position of power. We do not NEED Howard and according to sources, while Billy King would not reject a call from Mike Kupchak, Billy will not be calling. Brook Lopez is having the best season of his career while the Lakers will have to finish at .500 just to make the playoffs at this point and Howard not healthy in both his back and now a torn shoulder
The Nets would like Howard but do not need to chase him anymore. Meanwhile the Lakers will be lucky if he resigns in that mess with Kobe who he seems to have problems with there
