Dwight wants Magic to come out of retirement.


My goodness, first CP3, then D-Will, then Monta and now Nash.


I seriously think Jameer Nelson is going to commit suicide by the March 15th trade deadline out of depression. :(

I think the bottom line is that Dwight wants to play with a good point guard. After years of playing with Jameer - can anyone really blame him?

Jameer has had some really good years, was an all-star their championship year. This year, he's been really bad.

He's fed up with not getting touches. He expects to get the ball every time, and not have to work hard to get it. He's even complained after huge 4th quarter comebacks that he doesn't get the ball enough late in games. We've been nothing short of a great 4th quarter team the past month...

This guy also wants a ton of bums too, so I think it's clear he doesn't know what he wants, except that he wants an easy way to win.

"Sources close to the situation say that Howard will not exercise his early termination option if the Magic are able to acquire Nash."

Hate to say it but I feel like this is some Bull****. He's basically giving an ultimatum the Magic can't meet...

Yeah, I don't believe a word he says, or "sources" around him say.

Unless it's in print, I won't believe it. If we can get Nash, we need to make Dwight immediately honor his word...otherwise he'll probably change his fickle little mind.

The thing is, and I really don't even think I'm being biased, I really think he would stay in Orlando if he felt he could win there. He genuinely likes it there...he just wants to win (or just wants something...).

But I think his mind is not made up. It sucks, good for us perhaps, but it is what it is. It's a big deal, I'm sure...

Yeah, we'd have to take a salary back.

If Dwight makes it official that he won't opt out, then it's worth it. It is in no way shape or form worth it if he doesn't. Can't take the risk. So basically, it's gotta be up to Dwight here. He's holding the team hostage, so he's gotta man up to get anything done now.

Amare was his first choice but he also wanted Jamison.

LeBron has his handpicked team of Shaq, Jamison, Mo and his stepfather and when he still couldnt get it done he ran.

Dwight is going to do the same thing.

You are talking about being irreplaceable and asking for a raise in an office.

Imagine having to check with an employee on who you can hire/fire.....or walking on eggshells in fear to piss them off....when does that happen?

but why have a GM when you can have a superstar player set the roster.

MJ is doin pretty good with it.

When the success or failure of the company largely depends on one employee, they tend to have a lot of say.

The trade was JJ Hickson/Big Z + picks for Amare. I heard the Cavs turned it down.

Miami, NJ, Chicago, SAS were all trying to trade for Amare.

What would phx be looking for? Nash isnt going to get you much, getting nelson, anderson, and getting rid of a contract(warrick or frye) seems reasonable. no?

You'd see the Suns getting Ryan Anderson, Reddick, and Nelson and probably send back Nash, Frye (to replace Anderson), and other pieces that'll fill in the blanks. Suns won't trade Nash simply to help him win a title.


http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine Magic get Nash,Suns get Rondo.
You have to save the link first. You just posted the website for trade machine. I'd do something that included getting Rondo though.

Howard should sign with Phoenix in the off-season. They're gonna have a lot of cap-space this off-season and he could play with Nash while still having warm weather.

ManRam
03-01-2012, 09:07 PM
I think this has little to do with position, and more to do with just needing another star. He loves Jameer, in fact, by all accounts Dwight has kinda become a bit of a "loner", except for Jameer. They're best friends, and Jameer is really the only person Dwight is super friendly with.

I mean, he wants SGs, SFs and PGs on this team to help him out. He just wants something...

03-01-2012, 09:13 PM

For those pieces though, we're better off hanging onto Nash. It's better for the city. Nelson won't do anything for us except score. Anderson is just a cheaper Frye (anderson is having a better year).

There's just nothing that can hep us in the future outside of shaving off a couple years left on a deal.

If we were to dump a bad contract it'd have to be Childress for sure. Warrick we can always use the amnesty on. Frye is overpaid but still can be productive. Childress is a lost cause with 3 years left after this one.

If Howard can somehow force Nash to Orlando, and ends up staying there, Howard will become one of my favorite players. I wouldn't wanna see that team in the playoffs.

NetsPaint
03-01-2012, 09:29 PM
I wonder if Phoenix could find out from Nash if he'd return next season after playing for a contender (would give Nash a shot while getting pieces back to the Suns) without being considered tampering.

Does Orlando have draft picks to give up? Ryan Anderson is better than Frye and will get a nice payday next year, so it wouldn't make sense for you guys to take him back unless you liked him enough to re-sign him.

Lakers trade Ebank,Morris,Locke,Mcbob and Dallas 1st
Suns trade Nash,Warrick,Childress and Lopez
Orlando trade JJ,Meer,Orton and Anderson,1st rounder

Lakers get Anderson,Meer,Childress and Lopez
Suns get JJ,Morris,Ebanks,Orton and Orlando and Lakers first
Orlando gets Nash,Warrick,Locke and Mcbob

Lakers get a decent PG and scoring from Anderson. A back up for Bynum since he can be injured at anytime and take a bad contract in Childress but he expires when most of the lakers other big contracts do.

Suns get 2 picks for the future and some young talent and gets rid of two bad contracts.

Orlando can afford to lose Anderson they have big baby, they get nash which could maybe help Dwight out also get some PF depth. also a young Sg that can score and is cheap.

It seems to me as if Nash has a lot more value to the Suns for tix sales than he would anywhere else. I can't see how Orlando can provide enough value back?

I also have a hard time picturing Sarver giving in to a trade request by Nash(that hasn't been made yet) to reward his loyalty - at the expense of big time money.

If they trade Nash (for Orlando's assets!) that building is going to be EMPTY!

What is this idea that we have no assets come from? I guess our guys need more drama to show up on ESPN.

If there is nothing Phoenix wants for Nash that makes me ecstatic, because there is nothing I want to give up for a 38 year old. He has a year or two left and there is no way we get a fair deal out of this. Even if it was just for Turk for Nash.

I don't blame Dwight for what he's doing at all. He gave Orlando 7 full seasons and now that he's in his prime he's still never played with another top 20 player. Or top 30 player. Or top 40 player. He's never going to be able to get past teams like the Heat-Bulls or win a Finals against a team like the Thunder-Lakers with that supporting cast.

If you can't get your star a true 2nd option in 7 seasons then he's got all the right in the world to become a FA and walk.
