ESPN wrote up this story. It got me thinking, along with Howard wanting out of Orlando...

If you're Orlando, do you do this deal?

Amare Stoudemire & Tyson Chandler for Dwight Howard & Hedo Turk

At this point, you have to figure Orlando has to trade Howard and New York is most likely going to want to move Amare. Melo & Amare don't work. Howard doesn't work in Orlando. Melo & Howard on the other hand, are a perfect fit.

Chandler's stock is at an all-time high as he changed an entire team's defense, Amare's is at an all-time low.

Turk's contract is almost (or just as) bad as Amare's. So it's a clean swap. You also have to figure if you're Orlando, NJ can't give you as good as a package to win now as this one. The best they could do is Lopez, Brooks and a 1st (which would be a crappy pick because the Nets would be good).

You also have to figure the Lakers wouldn't give Bynum for Howard now after Bynum's season and that Howard doesn't want to go there.

With Howard truly being in the last season of his contract, there is no leverage they have with him and he's caused so much drama, so they almost have to send him somewhere he'd want to go. And with Amare & Chandler, they'd at least still be a 45-50 win team to get to the playoffs.

So would they do Amare & Chandler for Howard & Turk?

In my opinion, possibility, but with the competition for Howard, I think if NY threw Shumpert into the deal it'd be a deal breaker.

Nope. If I'm gonna trade Dwight for a big with suspect knees it'll be Bynum.

NY would have to sweeten the deal Chandler,Amare,Shumpert for Dwight,Turk.

NY would be a top 3 team with Lin,Melo,Dwight as the big 3.

Lmao first off this trade is old. Second, trade a 26yo top 3 player for two guys over 30 and injury prone? Lastly no one outside GSW or LA have much to offer Orlando. Brooklyn has no players or picks to offer.

Idk where Dwight will demand a trade and Orlando corespond.

No, Orlando would not do that trade.

They don't have the pick and roll PG to make Stat and Chandler work (Nelson is a Free agent). And if they re-signed him, they would be a 7th-8th seed paying the luxury tax. No chance they buy into that with Amar'e on the decline.

No way ORL would do that. Chandler will be 30 next season and Amare is ridiculously overpayed.

The article says they must trade stat this summer so they expect to get the best big in the league for a guy who's contract will handcuff whichever team he's on, not to mention he's always injured and refuses to play any defense.

And no, Chandler isnt enough to cover the difference between Amare and Dwight.

I put that trade into NBA 2k12, and I died.

I think Knicks would be crazy not to, but I doubt Orlando would want any part of it.

Not a bad trade idea at all. It's actually good. Bulls need a legit second scorer like Amare and NY needs a big that can complement Melo more. I might get killed for this.

Magic fans must be LOL'ing so hard at that proposal. :p

And seriously, who in their right mind is gonna want Amare? His stock is at an all-time low right now, and his contract is just terrible.

The OP is a troll, he got banned in the Knicks forum for posting stupid threads each day. Now he's doing it in the NBA forum.

It's not bad, I just don't like boozer. But my hate for Douglas is indescribable right now.

I'm hesitant on this deal because of Dwight's back. Not sure what to think about it and how bad it can get in the long run. Right now, this season, I preferred Tyson over Dwight.

^LMFAO! And you're alone in those sentiments... Dwight with a chronic back problem would still be better than Stat and Tyson.

How can anyone not think that a trade of Tyson Chandler and Shumpert is not a bargain for Orlando in exchange for Dwight Howard. After all Tyson is the Defensive Player of the year and a member of the New York Knicks.

Howard doesn't want to play for the Knicks. Even if Magic did a s&t and packaged Howard with Hedo. I think Magic would want Lin and Shumpart besides Chandler. Doubt they want Amare.. Unless they have another team on board to take Amare.
