    SOURCE: Nets Preparing To Pursue Trade For Dwight

    Oh here we go again. Let the conversations begin once again

    The Brooklyn Nets are preparing to make another run at Dwight Howard, according to a source.

    Playing in Brooklyn with Deron Williams and Joe Johnson was at the top of Howard’s list last summer and the Nets are convinced that he still has a strong desire to make the Barclays Center his home office. The Nets have played well under P.J. Carlesimo and feel like the addition of Howard could be the piece that gets them to the NBA Finals.

    Nets general manager Billy King has closely monitored the struggling Lakers and quietly searched for a third team with an attractive piece that would help facilitate a trade that would deliver Howard to the Nets, according to sources.

    The Lakers have struggled through injuries, a coaching change and a lack of chemistry this season. The team is currently 17-24 and facing the reality that missing the playoffs seems inevitable. The feeling out of Brooklyn is that Howard can be had for the right price because of the Lakers’ struggles and long-term commitment to a collection of pieces that just don’t seem to fit or complement Howard’s assortment of skills.

    The only missing element was a third team with an attractive piece that would force the Lakers to consider the future of the franchise and directly question Howard about the direction he’s leaning at this point of the season. King, according to sources, was confident that he had a trade proposal that was a perfect fit for all teams involved.

    According to sources, King was planning to contact the Minnesota Timberwolves in order to gauge their interest in a three-team trade that would send Kevin Love to the Lakers, Brook Lopez to the Timberwolves and Dwight Howard to the Nets. Other small pieces would need to be included, but the proposed trade was thought to be intriguing enough to start conversations in the Lakers front office that would force them to deal with Howard earlier than planned.

    That idea, however, was shelved when Love was sidelined 8-10 weeks with a broken hand. The Nets believed the Lakers would be interested in Love, but not an injured Love, even if they’re facing missing the playoffs, according to sources.

    King will still look around for an attractive piece for the Lakers, but won’t make getting Howard as big a priority as last season, according to sources. But he will continue to watch the Lakers and explore intriguing trade options, sources said.

    Dwight will ruin this team I hope we do not get him. This team has no shooters people dont realize this. Deron is declining and JJ is as well without Brook Lopez our offense pretty much sucks and defenses would collapse on Dwight while Deron chucks up 3s and misses 2/3 of them

    The only way Dwight becomes attractive to me is if you say we are also getting Ryan Anderson

    I couldn't hate on Billy King if he made a play for Dwight. Its a risk no doubt, but Dwight would at least give us a chance at a title. Without him our ceiling is maybe the ECF.

    Yeah but are we stretching the floor anymore? We don't have Kyle Korver or JJ Reddick

    No doubt we'd have to make another deal or two. But he would certainly help Mirza.

    It depends the only team in the east the nets cant beat is Miami Id feel comfortable matched up with anyone in a 7 game series besides them. Nets can sneak into the finals if someone can knock off miami. We should be more focused on getting a starting caliber defensive PF than acquiring Dwight. If we had a good PF we could definitely protect the paint and make noise
