View Full Version : What would you trade for Dwight Howard?

Here's the scenario. For 24 hours, the league turns off the salary cap and all of its' ramifications. The Magic let it be known that they will trade Dwight Howard in this time period (they know he's leaving, and they have a chance to dump money with him). So you're running your favorite team, and this comes up, what would you do to get Dwight Howard?

For my Knicks, I'd give everything and the kitchen sink except Carmelo. I'd send them Amare so they'd get an all star back, I'd send them Landry and Toney for some young talent, I'd send them Chauncey's expiring contract to mentor their young guys, and I'd take back Hedo and Gilbert's hideous contracts. Basically, I'd clean house to pair Melo and Dwight.

Not every team is in the same position though. Some teams couldn't afford the long term cap burden of taking on the Arenas/Hedo contracts. Others wouldn't want to give up the young talent necessary to get him because it wouldn't bring them any closer to a title and he'd probably leave anyway because of that. So with your team specifically, under these ramifications, what would you trade for Dwight Howard.

Everything the Sixers have. Ideally I'd like to keep Iguodala and Holiday. Jrue/-/Iggy/-/Howard would be awesome defensively, if the Sixers could find some good offensive playrs at the 2 and 4 they'd contend without a doubt.

Sadly your kitchen sink is worthless. I dont think ORL would be interested in Amare being that he is good enough for them to fight for an 8th seed but not bad enough to get them a high lottery pick. Besides he is paid a lot of money which im sure ORL would not be too keen on paying. ORL MIGHT be interested in getting Melo back thou... huge maybe


If we are going with he hypothetical assumption that he would resign with whatever team he is traded to the Timberwolves, Thunder, and Clippers could provide the best return for them. MIA if they are willing to send Lebron but i dont think ORL will want Bosh or Wade at his age.

I disagree. Lebron's hate is on another level. It stems from the media. The media has been on this kids jock since he was like 13 and he came into the league with more hype than anyone in NBA history imo with all the Jordan comparisons etc.

After 7 years of proclaiming his love for CLE and vowing to get CLE a title... he seemingly quits on CLE in the playoffs and bolts for the bigger market to team up with two superstars...

As long as Dwight steers clear of The Decision 2.0 he will get no more hate than Melo would in DEN; Maybe less since Dwight is more charismatic and likeable as a person and his fans relate to him.

this is tough for me, because even though my head would say i have to push hard for him, i just don't really like dwight. giving up everything and rebuilding around him would probably improve our winning prospects, but right know i think i'd enjoy developing jrue and et more.

and even my head wouldn't take back gil and hedo like someone else said. no way i give up everything just to end up in the situation orlando are in right now.

also the 2011 free agent class blows. i was thinking if the salary cap was turned off for 24 hours orlando would just sign the guys needed to keep dwight - but there really aren't any such guys available this summer.

I dont think orlando would trade Dwight to the knicks ( another east team) for a guy like Amare. However if no other suitable deal was available to them, they might consider it. Amare is under contract and is from florida so who knows?

I'd trade 4 first round draft picks, Thaddauess Young (or Lou Williams), Iggy, and Speights (or Meeks if they didn't take Lou instead of Thad).

I'm not trading Jrue he could be one of the best PG's in the game if he continues to develop and I think in year 3 (not this season but the following) Evan Turner will show you why he was drafted 2nd overall and will be a triple double machine (averaging something like 17, 10, 7).

edit:

This is assuming we have a long term contract signed at time of trade.

ESPN.com reports that Howard, speaking at a comic convention, has ruled out one NBA team as a possible destination: the 2011 Eastern Conference Champion Miami Heat.

What about the Lakers? "That's everybody's question," he told the "Kick" audience. "I am wearing purple but that's Rock's outfit."

The Heat? "Never."

Stay with the Magic or leave for free agency? "At this point, I don't know what I'm going to do. I'm just enjoying life and taking advantage of being young and being able to travel and do the things that I've always wanted to do."

my thought process on trading EG on any deal for howard or paul is to not do it, when u can have a chance to sign one of em via freeagency

why would paul go to lac to just play with griffin and noone else? and why would howard go to play with just blake or just gordon?

i think they can sign one during freeagency, caus they have a big 2 already

my thought process on trading EG on any deal for howard or paul is to not do it, when u can have a chance to sign one of em via freeagencyThe OP stated we dont have till next summer, and if Dwight gets traded its likely to a team he wants to stay with.

So lets pretend Dwight wants out of Orlando right now or Orlando wants to get something for Dwight right now. We cant sit on our laurels and wait for FA.
But yea Ill have a stance on your point once the CBA is resolved but are you sure we have enough CAP for that, dont we still have to lock up our current bigs and extend EJ?


why would paul go to lac to just play with griffin and noone else? and why would howard go to play with just blake or just gordon?

Because it represents a significant upgrade, a trade to a larger market, and it helps his former team (thus enhancing the likelihood that the trade gos down). Howard and Blake is the best Frontcourt in the NBA, a fine starting point, I would understand if Howard were 30 years of age or if Blake wasnt barely scratching his potential but given the chance I think he would come. Obviously keeping Gordon would be even better but it may not be an option under this scenario.

Agreed, then again I kind of thought we had a chance of landing Bron

The clippers have enough money to sign a max contract player, and another player worth 14 million, and can resign gordon with bird rights

he would never sign/resign there because he doesnt have enough help, pretty much the same reason that lebron went to miami, because chicago didnt have enough star power for him

I laughed so freaking hard when that happened, cause all of the news stations were talking about Lebron and Bosh going to Chicago or Bosh/Wade going to Chicago with Lebron going to NY

To me it's ridiculous how the Lakers are even considered a serious contender for him... they should be another team on the side; I guess they don't understand that Orlando probably doesn't want to be a consistent lower playoff seed for another 5 years.

Agreed. Chris Bosh by far was our #1 target. No one realistically expected LeBron will come to Miami, not even when SAS speculated it weeks before July 8. I didn't believe it even when he said that. I had to call my friends if I was hearing it right even though strong speculations started surfacing from the day before when Wade and Bosh made commitments.

Agreed. Orlando should go in full rebuilding mood if Dwight were to leave. Getting the likes of Bynum/Gasol/Amare/Bosh/others similar won't help them at all. They will get tied up with contracts and won't get high draft picks. I say go through OKC model and make yourself a contender in 5-7 years.

Most likely not going to happen... But people should be put on notice, that Pat can strike at any time.


(Once again, I really hope he goes to the N.O to join Cp3) But if he doesn't, then of-course Pat should do his job, and get the deal done.

I guess this is what you are talking about.

I'd actually rather try to keep Ibaka+Harden instead of Westbrook. Probably not possible... But I'd much rather have Eric Maynor passing to Harden, Durant, Ibaka, and Howard over Westbrook passing to Durant and Howard.

Just a personal preference I guess.

I think this:
PG - Maynor
SG - Harden
SF - Durant
PF - Ibaka
C - Howard

Is better than this:
PG - Westbrook
SG - Sefalosha
SF - Durant
PF - Collison
C - Howard

Nonetheless, the next 5-8 championships are locked up with either roster there.

There's tons of point guards in the league, so I'm sure we could pick up one somewhere, and I'm sure there are some spot up shooters we could pick up and teach to play defence.

Bulls Roster

DH/KT (resign)
Gibson/?
Deng/Korver/Turk
QRich/Bogans
Rose/Watson

Magic Roster

Noah/Asik/Orton?
Boozer/Bass
Anderson/Brewer
Arenas/JJ
Nelson/Duhon

Not sure if Orlando would like that. At most I would do Noah/Boozer/Bobcats/Mirotic for DH12 straight up.

Here's the scenario. For 24 hours, the league turns off the salary cap and all of its' ramifications. The Magic let it be known that they will trade Dwight Howard in this time period (they know he's leaving, and they have a chance to dump money with him). So you're running your favorite team, and this comes up, what would you do to get Dwight Howard?

For my Knicks, I'd give everything and the kitchen sink except Carmelo. I'd send them Amare so they'd get an all star back, I'd send them Landry and Toney for some young talent, I'd send them Chauncey's expiring contract to mentor their young guys, and I'd take back Hedo and Gilbert's hideous contracts. Basically, I'd clean house to pair Melo and Dwight.

Not every team is in the same position though. Some teams couldn't afford the long term cap burden of taking on the Arenas/Hedo contracts. Others wouldn't want to give up the young talent necessary to get him because it wouldn't bring them any closer to a title and he'd probably leave anyway because of that. So with your team specifically, under these ramifications, what would you trade for Dwight Howard.

as a fellow Knick fan im glad you are not the GM......

I'd actually rather try to keep Ibaka+Harden instead of Westbrook. Probably not possible... But I'd much rather have Eric Maynor passing to Harden, Durant, Ibaka, and Howard over Westbrook passing to Durant and Howard.

Just a personal preference I guess.

I think this:
PG - Maynor
SG - Harden
SF - Durant
PF - Ibaka
C - Howard

Is better than this:
PG - Westbrook
SG - Sefalosha
SF - Durant
PF - Collison
C - Howard
.

Stars over role players lol You can find a better sg and pf in free agency/amnesty (players will take less to play with these guys)



Nonetheless, the next 5-8 championships are locked up with either roster there.

Still wouldn't be enough to beat the HEAT:cool: after we reload.

you do know that the reason you guys lost wasnt becuase you needed more players which by the way is kind of sad your saying "reload" when you have lebron, wade and little cry baby on your team, you lost because Lebron has no heart and is a huge quitter and choker......

Lmao wtf is with laker fans always throw Odom's name out there as if that's what's gonna convince Otis smith. He's already said Dwight will walk before he trades him, and if you can't tell he's that bad a GM to do just that


Same with bulls fans. No one wants your trash players. Only OKC has chips and that's not a market D12 wants. No major city has a actual good deal for Dwight so why take on the extra payroll? You cut your losses and let him walk. Business 101

I would give up Andris Biedrins, Monta Ellis and a First Round Pick, because we already have plenty of youth on our team that we still need to develop and what way better than having a coming up star point guard in curry to work with the most elite big man in the league right now. Ellis is an awesome scorer but bringing in Dwight and having him besides a decent rebounder, passer and scorer in Lee I feel both sides can benefit, because who is Orlando's scorers? Jameer? J.J?

I honestly think if Bynum is the number 1 guy, he's going to work his *** off so he can stay on that damn court. We'd get Odom to start, don't need him having sex with anyone here...don't know what you mean there.

The reason for Bynum, he has the potential to be a stud and he's still very very young. Orlando's roster is built around the center. Who better to bring in then another potential dominant center? Makes a lot of sense. Bring in Odom because we'd still be battling our for a 4 or 5 seed in the playoffs with Odom and Bynum in replace of Dwight and Hedo. Odom is 10 times better than Hedo, which gives us a little more of an advantage on the outside.

Bynum
Anderson/Bass
Odom
Redick
Nelson

That doesn't scream greatness, but it's more than enough to put fans in the seats and have us be a 4-5 seed. Odom's contract is up in 2 years? I do believe also and getting rid of Hedo's 4 year long contract, and cutting Arenas would bring our cap waaaaaaaaaay down. Dwight/Hedo/Arenas make a combined like 48 million dollars....that'd help a lot

If I were Orlando and was offered this, I'd go to Howard and say, 'right now, max contract, take it or leave it'. If he said 'no', or 'i need more time', I'd say, 'OK pack your bags, you're on your way to Portland'.

I think Orlando would do this instantly. They won't come close to getting anything better for him.

Mix of a good future and a solid present. Possibly could trade Hedo and Bass or Anderson somewhere for a young better PF or possibly for some young guys and picks. Would be interesting

Chris Kaman
DeAndre Jordan

Teaming up Dwight with BG and Gordon in LA is not such a far fetched idea. A package of Kaman, Mo Williams, Jordan, and picks is probably as good as they can expect to get tradewise..... unless they just let him walk for free.

Im sure they would love to have Noah but you can bet they don't want anything to do with Boozer and his contract so thats out. Besides that or a Bynum/Odom package Im not sure what else you can expect to get..... there's no way you get equal value in this situation.
