Wade's Free Agency Could End With Dwight in Orlando (http://nba.fanhouse.com/2009/11/25/wades-free-agency-could-end-in-orlando/)




"If I could pick one player in the league today to play with and most people think I'd say LeBron James I would pick Dwight (Howard)," Wade told FanHouse Wednesday after practice at Amway Arena. "I'd love for that to happen at some point. Dwight is already close right here in Orlando. People who say it couldn't happen (us playing on the same team), they don't know. I've learned in this league that anything is possible."

Wade and his Heat teammates are in Orlando to play the Magic Wednesday night. He and Howard spent considerable time together last summer at the Olympic Games, then this summer filming both a T-Mobile commercial and a movie that will be released soon.

Wade already played in Miami with former Magic center Shaquille O'Neal, and they won the 2006 NBA title together. Howard has replaced O'Neal -- now in Cleveland -- as the league's best big man. Although Wade won the league's scoring title last season, the Heat have struggled since O'Neal's departure in 2008.

"I've played with a dominant center before, and there's nothing like it. It changes the whole game. It's why I'd love to play with Dwight. He's a phenomenal center who has only just scratched the surface of where he'll be," Wade said. "And he's the type of guy you'd really like to be around."

Who wouldn't want to play with Dwight? Too bad it's impossible.

Here's another question. Who wants to play with D-Wade? Cause Miami ACTUALLY has the cap room to make it happen.

PG- Jameer Nelson
SG- Dwayne Wade
SF- Vince Carter
PF- Rashard Lewis
C- Dwight Howard

Sounds like he inadvertantly threw Jermaine O'Neil under the bus here.

That starting lineup alone will put the Magic above the cap.
Wade can say what he wants, but barring a trade, there's no chance in hell it happens in the near future. Certainly not this offseason.

I wish it would happen but highly doubt it. Miami wanted a pick to even let us sign SVG. I doubt they would S&T him to Orlando.

But I won't rule it out till he actually signs somewhere. Because it would be better for them to get something in return then let him go for free unless they keep that cap space for some other FA, but who would go with no Wade?

Sign and trade.

Still don't see it happening.

If Miami loses Wade, I don't think they will want to rebuild around Rashard or Vince. Neither probably appeal to them much. I also don't see them trading him to Orlando of all teams. Wade + Dwight means bad news for them. An in-state, in-division rival is not who you will want to trade him to.

They can get better deals, ones that revolve around young players, high draft picks (something we can't offer) etc.

Not in a million years will they trade Wade to us. I wish...but I'm also not a dumb-dumb.

Wade and Lebron would work out for maybe 5 games
You can't put a superstar like Wade and a superstar like Lebron on the same team. Both want the ball and want to be the man. Maybe in their older age when all they want is a championship (second for Wade ;)) and dont care about being top scorer.

I really hope this happens.
If everyone can just have paycuts, then they can automatically win a championship.
Nelson - 5 mil, Wade - 15 mil, Carter - 10 mil, Lewis - 10 mil, Howard - 15 mil then they wouldn't go over the cap.
Too bad they want more money than championships.

NO WAY. Shaq in his prime was MUCH better than dwight now and even next year. kobe back then was probably on the same level as dwade is now.. so nope.. no where near shaq and kobe. if those two played together they'd need a good squad full of talent and a pretty good sf.. like a battier

See the nice things about S&T is that the OTHER team signs the player and trades him to the team he wants to go to. Well obviously he would request to go to the Magic thus why it would happen.

Unstoppable, but since basketball players actually get payed real money and there is a salary cap you can keep trying to make these trades happen on playstation.

Okay, so in order for the Orlando Magic to sign Wade, they either have to clear $50 million in cap space. Or get Riley to start smoking crack....

Anon
11-26-2009, 12:06 PM
I do not see this happening but not because of the salary cap. NBA fans need to forget about the salary cap. It means nothing. Orlando was over the cap going into the off season and brought in: Vince Carter, Brandon Bass, Ryan Anderson, Matt Barnes and Jason Williams. We are now 35 million over the "cap." The only teams the cap stops are those who do not want to go into luxury tax territory. We are not one of them.

But he'll be 34. If they are trading Wade, they'll want young player to rebuild with, and a guy who isn't basically an expiring contract. No way they want Vince. No way.


Im sure you rather have talent back rather then let him walk for free.

If you let him go you can go after a ton of FAs (they'll have a ****-ton of cap), instead of a 34 year-old player who you can't rebuild around. It would be a lost season, without much more hope for the future. They'll let him walk, re-sign him, or S&T from something that might be of any value down the road...like draft picks (ours will suck), or good young talent.

How more pathetic and desperate will the media get in their attempts to get people to read their garbage?

So now Wade is going to Orlando because he complemented Dwight on being a great player.

I guess the "Wade to New York" and "Wade to Chicago" must have gotten too boring for the time being, huh?

Next week he will say something nice about Chris Paul and it will be "Wade might be going to New Orleans"

And God forbid he might complement Kobe Bryant on anything. "Wade to LA Wade to LA!".

Bottom line is:

The media is garbage, and all of these pathetic losers should be lined up and have their sorry arses whipped until they find something actually interesting to write instead of their constant tabloid monkey crap.
