Do you think Boston and New Jersey would be enticed with this package: Rondo & O’neal to New Jersey, Gasol & Morris to Boston and D-Will to the Lakers? Steve Kyler: Maybe… I am not sure how to read the Deron Williams situation… I can tell you Dwight;s circle was not at all happy with D-Will this weekend and felt he’s looking out for himself… that’s where the Dallas stuff has come from. I know that New Jersey has heard what we’ve heard. The question is do they blink on D-Will and try and trade him before he skips off to Dallas?

Good, Lakers will take D-Will. Thanks Dwight, I never wanted you in the first place. I wanted a PG (CP3 or D-Will)

Oh who cares. This stuff is all made up. They both will be in jersey next year.

Edit: Brooklyn not Jersey.

If any of these reports are true which I highly doubt it. Howard sounds like such a *****. He wants to play with Kobe. Now he doesn't because he's mad at him. He wants to play with Dwill but now he's mad at him. hopefully these reports aren't true but I've lost a lot of respect for this guy for how he's handle this situation.

The media is running out of names that Dwight is apparently not happy with. First Lebron then Kobe and now Deron

My theory and its only a theory is that Dwight put the Mavs on his list for Deron and because thats a place that Deron wants to play. Maybe Dwight is reconsidering staying and is trying to recruit Deron to ORL but Deron has no interest in playing there so Dwight feels that Deron is looking out for himself.

As i said its just something ive been thinking about because it has always seemed strange to me that Deron hasnt requested a trade to ORL and its Dwight (who is the big fish) requesting trades.

Well that could also be because he knows the Nets would never trade him to ORL. They have no assets.

Seriously, are they in middle school? Dwight, mainly.


How dare Deron not tell Dwight everything and anything. And how dare he not beg me to pair up with him every 30 seconds?!?!

Thats a big If, but Im with u if they are true than what a overly sensitive crybaby ******!!! I dont want that on the Lakers and feel sorry for the Magics for having to cater to that. Who told him it was alright to act like that? His immaturity will be his downfall.

why the ******* would boston do this?

LA is pushing for rondo boston doesnt want gasol..

can we please stop with that.. boston does not want a aging soft pf..

why would boston let there players go to the team that gives up the best player and not get the best player...

boston would trade for deron in a heartbeat.. especially with kg coming off the books and you could resign allen .. dwill, ray allen, paul pierce, doc rivers, tons of cap space AND your the celtics in a big market and great fan base.. boston would trade for deron without the extension..they could also sign dwight if he makes it into the offseason...

This is from Hoopsworld as well.

"It’s up to Dwight.

If Dwight is open and honest and says I’ll give this one more year and Opt-In then Orlando absolutely won;t trade him… If Dwight says I am opting out and exploring my options in July… Orlando has to seriously consider dealing him.

From what we heard during All-Star… the Dwight/Deron Williams scenario in Brooklyn has imploded… Deron wants to explore his options and everyone believes that’s Dallas.

More and more people say Dwight Opts-In and hits free agency in 2013 when Chris Paul, Monta Ellis and Josh Smith can all hiot free agency and more teams can dump money to get after them.

I think its all about what Dwight says when they corner him on March 14th."

This is the first I've heard of the Brooklyn scenario possibly falling apart. So many different rumors are coming out now.

We can't really get mad with Dwight, it's not him putting pressure on himself. It's Orlando's front office being afraid of losing Dwight without compensation. All of this drama is because of what Lebron did. Blame him for holding that city hostage while allowing other small market teams to watch and learn from it. Melo got all that criticism and he wasn't any different from any other player wanting to test the free agent market. I wanna know since when it became a crime to leave a team after your contract is up.

03-01-2012, 10:16 PM
Well that could also be because he knows the Nets would never trade him to ORL. They have no assets.

Not about Nets trading D-Will to Orlando for trade assets. Its really about it being a 90% chance that D-Will is going to Dallas in the off season no matter what. That's where he wants to be.

Dwight wants to play with another star but I think he is starting to see how stubborn D-Will is. Also if Howard goes to NJ during a trade, and extends with them, then D-Will leaves anyways (Because he has never said anything about signing an extension if D12 comes to NJ to the best of my knowledge) Then what was the point of Howard leaving?

The Lakers have seem to show Bynum more favoritism then Howard and Don't look like they want Howard as bad as 90% of the league wants him (I actually gained a lot of respect to Laker fans for knocking down Howards ego a little bit. )

Orlando could've been traded this guy, they are the one that made it this way. You haven't won anything with him and he won't commit to you long term with his contract about to expire, so trade him and move on.

I know that Deron has made it clear - but I believe Dwight is in the same situation. Neither of them will be extending. The nature of the new CBA dictates that they will make more money if they opt-out and then sign.

Howard stand to make more money if he is traded because then that team has his bird rights - but he won't be extending with ANYONE this season.

That's one of the reasons why LA is a gun-shy. Whoever trades for him is taking a risk because he WILL be a FA at some point - even if it's only for long enough to re-sign.

Dwight has kind of burnt too many bridges to go to any other team. I think the only team really desperate enough to need him is New Jersey and of course Orlando. He might as well stay and see if they can try to build again.
I say Orlando makes a move for Monta Ellis.
Gets some veterans around like hell even Steven Jackson.
or even make a move to try and get Rondo or Ray Allen out of Boston.
But Orlando doesn't have the pieces to make these happen

What NJ traded for D will is their business, he didn't tell them to trade for him, he find out training with his teammates.

D will can go to any team he wants too when he's contract is up.

Sure... and ORL will somehow become a large market for them to join. I forgot they can get a major endorsment deal with ORL Studios

Dwight Howard's days in ORL are numbered and if by some miracle he opts in to his contract and postpones his FA for another year it will be because the Deron Williams thing imploded. However this is and always has been about a large market.

lol oh god, here we go with the large market thing again :facepalm: lets not address what i said and talk about orlando not being a "big market" team.

"The Greater Orlando metropolitan area has a population of 2,134,411, making it the 26th largest metro area in the United States, the sixth largest metro area in the southeastern United States, and the third largest metro area in Florida. Orlando is the fifth largest city in Florida, and the state's largest inland city"

2.1million ppl JUST IN ORLANDO! and thats not even including the surrounding areas of Central Florida.

Think about Central Florida as a whole, seeing as the next closest bball team is Miami or ATL, ... "In 2009, the estimated total population of the Central Florida region was 3.3 million people"

3.3million people in the central FL area, in 2009, 3 years ago.

Brooklyn- 2.5million residents, also sharing the city with the Knicks

can you PLEASE shutup now about Orl not being a "big market".

if a "big market" team isnt defined by the population in the area or international awareness/marketability of the area (you know all those tourists know about Disney, universal, 3rd largest university in the US, etc..), then tell me. If your basing your big market statistics purely on TV ratings, then sure, thats a different story...in that case, Miami would be a "smaller market" than Minnesota, so ill take those stats with a grain of salt.

"Championships are determined by good ownership, intelligent front offices and quite a bit of luck. Those three factors are infinitely more important than market size will ever be"
-THIS would be the reason dwight leaves the Magic, bc Devos and Otis screwed up, not for a big market.

lol oh god, here we go with the large market thing again :facepalm: lets not address what i said and talk about orlando not being a "big market" team.

"The Greater Orlando metropolitan area has a population of 2,134,411, making it the 26th largest metro area in the United States, the sixth largest metro area in the southeastern United States, and the third largest metro area in Florida. Orlando is the fifth largest city in Florida, and the state's largest inland city"

2.1million ppl JUST IN ORLANDO! and thats not even including the surrounding areas of Central Florida.

Think about Central Florida as a whole, seeing as the next closest bball team is Miami or ATL, ... "In 2009, the estimated total population of the Central Florida region was 3.3 million people"

3.3million people in the central FL area, in 2009, 3 years ago.

Brooklyn- 2.5million residents, also sharing the city with the Knicks

can you PLEASE shutup now about Orl not being a "big market".

if a "big market" team isnt defined by the population in the area or international awareness/marketability of the area (you know all those tourists know about Disney, universal, 3rd largest university in the US, etc..), then tell me. If your basing your big market statistics purely on TV ratings, then sure, thats a different story...in that case, Miami would be a "smaller market" than Minnesota, so ill take those stats with a grain of salt.

"Championships are determined by good ownership, intelligent front offices and quite a bit of luck. Those three factors are infinitely more important than market size will ever be"

:laugh2: Silly Rabbit... thanks for copying and pasting all those facts you pulled from Google but you have proved absolutely nothing... except that a lot more people are gonna have their hearts broken than i realized :laugh2:

what the heck does population size have to do with being a big market?

NY is the largest media market in the world and it doesnt matter that the Knicks play there cuz they market for Dwight wouldnt just be the local area :pity:

We can't really get mad with Dwight, it's not him putting pressure on himself. It's Orlando's front office being afraid of losing Dwight without compensation. All of this drama is because of what Lebron did. Blame him for holding that city hostage while allowing other small market teams to watch and learn from it. Melo got all that criticism and he wasn't any different from any other player wanting to test the free agent market. I wanna know since when it became a crime to leave a team after your contract is up.

+2, he gave Olrando plenty of years to surround him with talent. If he wantd to leave its his right. Orlando is at fault if they dont trade him and he walks

what nj traded for d will is their business, he didn't tell them to trade for him, he find out training with his teammates.

D will can go to any team he wants too when he's contract is up.

As a net fan I honestly could care less if dwill opts out as long as we get dwight. If he is pissed dwill is talking about leaving just means he is serious about coming here.

Both teams got the better end.

If the Dwight "Trade me to NJ" rumors didn't pop up, Nene signs with the Nets. If the Mavs didn't trade Rudy and Brewer, the Nuggets would lost Nene, Chandler, JR and Martin.

So, the Nuggets didn't really win the trade but the obviously got better by divine order.

Without the Melo trade, there is no Tyson Chandler which means there is no Baron Davis and no Jeremy Lin.

It goes both ways. Either way, both teams have the same amount of wins.
