The Mavericks’ top offseason priority will be re-signing Tyson Chandler, the best big man in franchise history.

Unless they can land the best big man in the NBA.

That’s a topic of conversation today because of the bombshell dropped by ESPN’s Ric Bucher on SportsCenter. He reported that Dwight Howard’s short list of teams he’d want to be traded to includes the Nets, Knicks, Lakers … and the Mavericks.

All due respect to Chandler – and that is a ton, considering the massive tangible and intangible contributions he’s made to a title contender – but it’d be an absolute no-brainer for the Mavs to acquire a 26-year-old perennial All-NBA center if possible.

After a week he will add another team..probably OKC or Bulls.hhaaha

Thats not a good idea is it?


Miami winning represents what is bad for the nba. Superteams. It means 25 teams would be irrelevant which also means people will turn away from the sport.

05-23-2011, 04:33 AM
dallas does have the pieces. they can trade butler, terry re-sign tyson and trade them for dwight and gilberts sick contract. both teams would do it. it works out for them. orlando saves money by getting rid of that crummy contract in arenas. dallas takes it cuz its worth getting dwight in return. dallas can move on without butler and tyson can be orlandos new center. hedo can go to the bench while butler starts at sf with j rich at sg and terry coming off the bench..

good trade.. but too bad it wont happen because dwight will end up in LA if he leaves orlando.. its like a prohecy waiting to be done. bynum, caracter, blake, brown and barnes whoever else and a first for dwight, arenas and reddick
lakers use MLE to sign a new pg

I thought that was common knowledge?
I really hope Laker fans aren't thinking otherwise.

The only trade that makes sense for the Magic is to force Lakers to add in Odom, so in turn the Magic can dump off another bad contract... Arenas or Turkoglu, take your pick.

He's might be a HEAT as well. Orlando won't get a better center piece than Bosh and nobody can still say "Dwight you can still play with LeBron and Wade". 3 best on the planet are playing together...thrilling!

aussie
05-23-2011, 06:20 AM
tbh i think that the best places he should be at are NOLA with CP3, or NJ with Deron...they are 2 places where he would avg a decent amount of point and have the best shot at a title, since them PG's are always pass first, not score first like Rose

Also Phoenix or Mavs wouldn't be bad for him but i think the first 2 are best! Not being all bias just stating the truth

No, the Heat do.

Plus matching Howard up with a PG that doesn't average 8-8.5 assists per game isn't exactly inviting for him. He'd much rather play with CP/Deron/Rondo etc

this. all of this talk is moot. there will be a lockout and probably no season at all next year. Which then means D12 will be a free agent, and then the real frenzy will begin. Along with CP3 of course.

I still don't understand why howard would want to go on a team that is older than his current team. You would figure he would want to go on a younger team that can compete for a longer time than the lakers can IMO.

Bucher is a douche who doesnt know what he is talking about. he has come out several times with "breaking news" and it ends up not happening and being completely false. this guy reports what he wants to report whether its true or false.

with that said, it wouldnt surprise me that Dwight would want to go to Dallas. it doesnt surprise that hes interested in any of those teams. idk how the Knicks or the Nets ever package a trade deal better than what the Mavs or Lakers could offer. and im sure when next years trade deadline gets closer, we will see a lot of rumors about where Dwight wants to play/which teams are willing to trade for him.

Of course he said that. Any GM in their right mind wouldn't say we are going to trade howard. He is saying that so season ticket holders feel good and will buy another season. The season ticket sales would decrease fast and then in turn the team loses money. Its all a PR stunt.

All these pundits have "sources" but never name them. They want to look important and instead end up looking like complete idiots. Michael Wilbon is the biggest liar of them all. Wilbon talks about his "sources" tell him that a deal between the Lakers & Magic is "in the works". That was news to Otis Smith. Funny that the Lakers & Bulls are his two favorite teams.

Trade: Arenas, Duhon, Reddick, Jameer, Bass, Q-Rich and right to Fran Vazquez!
Magic resign: Jrich and if the League which cant afford a lockout (to many teams are in the RED!!!) do an exemption on all teams for one bad contract! Allowing the Arenas trade . . .then the Magic could resign Rashard Lewis and a big like Chandler or Dalembert!

Orl:
C Howard, Okafor, Chandler/Dalembert
F: R-Lewis, Anderson, Orton, Clark, Hedo,

Lakers will like a word with you at least for the next 2-3 years. Besides you are not going to be able to get pass Miami since according to everyone Miami is going to win 7 titles. So that leaves Dwight 1 year to win it all with the Bulls before he has to retire. Howard/Gasol/Artest/Bryant/TBD is >>>> than Noah/Boozer/Deng/Brewer/Rose. not by alot but close. But Lakers have advantage because of Odom as our 6th man

TRADE HEDO FOR A WASHING MACHINE



I don't understand all the hate for Hedo. It's not his fault he was forced into the 2nd option role on our team. He's at most a 3rd option player. He's one of our only players who can actually create for other players on offense. He just can't be the focal point as our 2nd scorer like we tried making him be.

Dwight's trade options: (Arenas will be waived via Amnesty Clause)

Lakers - Bynum/Odom/etc for Dwight/Turk
Pros - Play with Gasol/Kobe, great oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - Play in the shadows of previous great centers (Mikan, Wilt, Kareem, Shaq), short window to win (Kobe's older)
Chances - Moderate - If he says he wants LA and he'll leave if he doesn't get it, they can do a lot worse than Bynum/Odom

Bulls - Noah/Taj/Asik/Picks for Dwight/Bass
Pros - Play with Rose/Boozer, great oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - Rose is not a pass-first PG, wants to be the "man" wherever he goes but Rose owns Chitown
Chances - Very Low - The Magic wouldn't want to play him 4 times a year, especially if they meet in the playoffs, Dwight wouldn't be happy with touches and playing second fiddle to Rose

Knicks - Stat/Etc for Dwight
Pros - Play with Melo (possibly CP3 also), great oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - D'Antoni is not a defensive-minded coach
Chances - Low - Unless the Knicks use the Amnesty Clause to waive Stat's contract and then sign D12/CP3 in 2012, they will have close to 0% chance that he gets traded there (EC team, Stat = overrated)

Dallas - Chandler/Beaubois/Butler/etc for Dwight/Turk
Pros - Play with Dirk, great oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - Giving up a lot to get him, short window to win (most guys are 30+)
Chances - Moderate - If he lists the Mavs and doesn't list the Lakers, then they have a shot, otherwise Bynum > w/e Mavs offer

Heat - Bosh/Joel Anthony/etc for Dwight
Pros - Play with Wade/Lebron, best possible oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - Playing second fiddle to Rose wouldn't be nearly as bad as playing third fiddle to Wade/Lebron
Chances - None - No way the Magic trade Dwight to the Heat for anything besides Lebron

Nets - Brook/Humphries/etc for Dwight/etc
Pros - Play with DWill, good oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - Take a long time to rebuild around them, coaching issues
Chances - Low - EC team, can get a better deal out West

Blazers - GForce/Oden (if healthy)/Camby for Dwight/Turk
Pros - Play with Aldridge/Batum/Miller/Matthews, good oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - N/A
Chances - Moderate - Will depend on Oden's ability to bounce back

Magic
Pros - Stays in his city, MGMT will continue to try and make his team better
Cons - Bad contracts locked up for another 3 years, no secondary scorer, poor defensive team
Chances - Moderate to High - Will depend on the new CBA and how they perform next season (should there be a next season)

There are many teams that will have capspace in 2012 (so far), but these seem to be the teams linked to him most by fans and idiots like Ric Bucher/Sam Smith...

Chances - Moderate - If he says he wants LA and he'll leave if he doesn't get it, they can do a lot worse than Bynum/Odom

Bulls - Noah/Taj/Asik/Picks for Dwight/Bass
Pros - Play with Rose/Boozer, great oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - Rose is not a pass-first PG, wants to be the "man" wherever he goes but Rose owns Chitown
Chances - Very Low - The Magic wouldn't want to play him 4 times a year, especially if they meet in the playoffs, Dwight wouldn't be happy with touches and playing second fiddle to Rose

Knicks - Stat/Etc for Dwight
Pros - Play with Melo (possibly CP3 also), great oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - D'Antoni is not a defensive-minded coach
Chances - Low - Unless the Knicks use the Amnesty Clause to waive Stat's contract and then sign D12/CP3 in 2012, they will have close to 0% chance that he gets traded there (EC team, Stat = overrated)

Dallas - Chandler/Beaubois/Butler/etc for Dwight/Turk
Pros - Play with Dirk, great oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - Giving up a lot to get him, short window to win (most guys are 30+)
Chances - Moderate - If he lists the Mavs and doesn't list the Lakers, then they have a shot, otherwise Bynum > w/e Mavs offer

Heat - Bosh/Joel Anthony/etc for Dwight
Pros - Play with Wade/Lebron, best possible oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - Playing second fiddle to Rose wouldn't be nearly as bad as playing third fiddle to Wade/Lebron
Chances - None - No way the Magic trade Dwight to the Heat for anything besides Lebron

Nets - Brook/Humphries/etc for Dwight/etc
Pros - Play with DWill, good oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - Take a long time to rebuild around them, coaching issues
Chances - Low - EC team, can get a better deal out West

Blazers - GForce/Oden (if healthy)/Camby for Dwight/Turk
Pros - Play with Aldridge/Batum/Miller/Matthews, good oppurtunity at a ring
Cons - N/A
Chances - Moderate - Will depend on Oden's ability to bounce back

Magic
Pros - Stays in his city, MGMT will continue to try and make his team better
Cons - Bad contracts locked up for another 3 years, no secondary scorer, poor defensive team
Chances - Moderate to High - Will depend on the new CBA and how they perform next season (should there be a next season)

There are many teams that will have capspace in 2012 (so far), but these seem to be the teams linked to him most by fans and idiots like Ric Bucher/Sam Smith...

That is no where close to an even trade they will be giving up Gasol, Bynum, Odom and somebody else and not getting Turk in return maybe Chris Duhon

I bolded the LA trade so obviously I was talking about his proposed Orlando and LA trade...Nobody in the world thinks Bynum and Howard are equals so a basically a straight up trade will not work and makes no sense at all. you can' even get Bynum and Odom for Howard on a video game

A straight up trade wouldn't work but because of salaries I don't see much more L.A. could give the Magic in a trade besides draft picks and/or Shannon Brown and draft picks.

I think some of you will be surprised at what a trade would look like. It all depends on what's most important for the Magic. If they are losing their superstar, there is no talent that is going to replace him so your options are:

* Make a huge dent in their league-worst salary and luxury tax situation, acquire young cheap talent from a team with cap space to absorb some poor performing players, get good draft picks (2012 is the stacked draft), and begin rebuilding

-OR-

* Acquire talent via trade with salaries that work in the trade system, to try and maintain a playoff run (but obviously early exit) and continue to pay massive amounts of salary and luxury tax

This is the question. The first scenario favors a team like the Nets that will have a ton of salary cap space to absorb bad contracts into without having to send much back (you don't need to match salaries as long as NJ doesn't go over cap by $100,000). Nets also have 3 picks in 2012. Also you'd have to assume they would trade Brook Lopez, who despite his flaws, is still a 20PPG 7 footer on a rookie contract and only 23 years old. Also, Lopez is a huge Disney guy and by most people's impressions, would probably consider Orlando the greatest destination in the world.

However, if they want to continue to try and push hard for the playoffs, they can go the Lakers route and acquire Odom & Bynum, but of course they will still be paying massive amounts of money for a mediocre team. But that team will be better than the Nets trade would have them in the short term, but they wouldn't get any decent draft picks, and both Odom and Bynum will then need to be convinced to stay.

If I'm Mark Cuban, I call the Magic and say "anything and everything you want besides Dirk is yours."

Dirk and Howard would be so impossible to stop.

Yea I can't see it happenning. Though if we win and Dwigtht is watching Dirk play right now I'm sure his interest will be high.

Dwight's defensive presence + Dirk's offensive dominance would be a night mare. Dirk is a good defender but with Dwight having his helpside D he would look alot better than he is. And between the two of them matchup problems like no other for the defense.

When you think about it the rest of the casdt is perfect too. Shooters like Terry, Kidd, Peja would see open looks like never before.

Doesn't make sense for him to go to Dallas. Brooklyn or LA. The Lakers easily have the best package to give up, Dallas doesn't have tradable assets to land him.

If he walks in 2012 he should go to Brooklyn, he and Dwill will make a nice combo

They are the only team currently setup to have the cap room to sign him. Which of course is the only reason why the Magic would trade him.
