All-Star point guard Deron Williams has made one decision about his free agency: If the Brooklyn Nets win the No. 1 pick in the NBA's draft lottery on Wednesday night and the chance to secure Kentucky center Anthony Davis it won't be enough for Williams to sign a contract extension, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
"It's Dwight Howard or bust," said a league source who has spoken to Williams.

Williams doesn't want to stay with the Nets unless they become an instant Eastern Conference contender and wouldn't accept waiting for Davis' development. The Nets have a 7.5 percent chance of winning the lottery, and sources said the organization would be willing to part with Davis for the chance to pair Howard and Williams for the franchise's move into a new Brooklyn arena next season.

Why is it stupid?

What are the percentages that Davis becomes better than Howard? There's a small chance he becomes as good, but better? I'd say 1:100.

Nets have been rebuilding and developing young players forever they want two stars and want to win now.

I'm not so certain it would happen even if NJ got the pick, but I'll tune into this draft lottery with more excitement than I have since the year we drafted Dwight.


Hell, I'd be content if they landed the #2 pick and gave us T-Rob, Drummond, MKG or BEAL. I wanna rebuild!

I think thats a bit of an exaggeration. Davis' offensive potential is higher than Dwight's ever was/will be. Remember, he was 6'2'' in his sophomore year of highschool so he already has some guard skills. And defensively we all know his potential is incredible. It's unlikely that he'll get to Dwight's level defensively but I'd be surprised if he doesnt win DPOY at least once in his career.

With all that being said I'd still take Dwight over him right now because with Dwight you get a sure thing and Davis is still a question mark until we see him against NBA competition.

Nets should have stuck with Favors, Kanter, Brooks, & Lopez and maybe could have gotten MKG... If they dont get a top 3 pick this year and lose Deron smh

That will be a disaster

05-30-2012, 11:29 AM
Brook Lopez and Bradley Beal would probably be better than Davis i would think.

yeaj New Jersey was pretty dumb, trading their whole future away for Deron.
Can you imagine if Favors, and Kanter had more playing time how good they would be next year or the year after.

05-30-2012, 11:39 AM
You can't blame Deron for wanting Dwight,he's 28yrs old,he wants to contend now,Anthony Davis will be a great player,but he will not make Brooklyn a contender over night like Dwight would.

Would be one of the dumbest trades ever made... the Nets keep giving away great young talent for longshots. If they can get Anthony Davis, it is a no brainer to keep him because he will make 1/5th of Howards salary over his rookie contract.

Imagine having Davis and Favors locked up as your starting frontcourt for the next 3-4 years at 7-8 mill a year TOTAL. Then having Kanter coming off the bench at 3 mill a year. :drool:

With all that they would have 40+ Mill in cap space, a great trade piece in Brook Lopez and Brooklyn... sounds better than throwing everything at 2 stars honestly.

nycericanguy
05-30-2012, 11:52 AM
So basically if the Nets don't at least get a top 3 pick tonight they lose Howard & Deron...

And there is a 79% chance NJ WON'T get a top 3 pick.

That Gerald Wallace trade still baffles me, one of the worst trades in recent history. To trade a lottery pick for the right to pay $10m to a 30 year old declining SF that NJ could have just signed this offseason. I mean did Billy King really think 1 month of Gerald Wallace would make Deron stay?

With all that they would have 40+ Mill in cap space, a great trade piece in Brook Lopez and Brooklyn... sounds better than throwing everything at 2 stars honestly.

If no Deron trade, next year they would have had:
Harris-7.5, Favors-4.7, Kanter-4.3, Brooks-1.1, Wallace-9.5, Morrow-4,Farmer-4.25, Petro-3.5, Lopez-4.1 qualifying offer, J. Williams-760k

So about 44.5 in salary with their lottery pick plus Golden States if it falls out of the top 7. Add in say A. Davis salary at about 5.2 and the Nets still have about 7-10 million in cap space with nearly the full roster already filled out.

Next summer Harris, Wallace, Morrow, Farmer, and Petro come off the books, so the Nets would be looking at only about 18 million between Davis, Kanter, Favors, Brooks, J. Williams. They would need to resign Brook obviously but would have about 40 million to do that plus add via FA.

So they'd ultimately be able to go into next summer with Lopez, Anthony Davis, Favor, Kanter, Brooks and about 26-30 million in cap space.

Hell they'd be pretty close to being able to sign Deron and Dwight (on slightly discounted deals, depending really on what Lopez gets) if Deron didn't opt out this summer and waited for 2013 to hit the market. Imagine that squad, which I assume Lopez would probably be dealt for depth at the guard or wing position.

They would be dumb to give up Davis. The best scenario would be making a package for Dwight with Lopez, Humphries and picks, and keep Davis and put him in a starting line up that would include Dwight and Wallace... it's be the bet defensive and reboudning frontline in the league.

It's tough to trade a number one pick (Davis) for a hall of fame caliber player with serious back issues though? Anything to do with discs is serious. Just look at how Amare is? I still think his back is affecting his play alot.

After the rehab Howard is going to do, I don't think he'll have a chance to be back to his old self at least for a year after he's cleared to play. That and his willingness to throw people in the organization under the bus to be liked by everyone else (ex. Stan Van Gundy).

You are underestimating how good Davis will be (I think better than Howard)... and Favors is only 20 years old and has one of the highest ceilings in the NBA. That money would be attractive to a lot of free agents since it is Brooklyn and the young core is in place.

The Magic could have traded Howard last year, and they had to go through and entire season of bull ****.... If they try to play hard ball with the Nets, it can easily spin out of control, and everyone losses.

Nj, DO NOT TRADE THE PICK FOR HOWARD... period!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Magic got themselves into this, they need to accept a package of Lopez, brooks and fillers and YES a team or two will need to be involved for this trade to go down.

Your forgetting the DERON WILLIAMS FACTOR. If BK wins the lotto Orlando once again has the leverage. You think they wanna risk Dwight doing another dumb decision, or lose dwill for a rookie who may be the next Oden or Eddy curry? Orlando will own that trade

I don't even care if it's #2 or #3...I want them in the top 3. They've shown an interest in Dwight, so them getting assets can't hurt our cause. I love Brad Beal. I think Drummond, if motivated, has as much upside as anyone in the draft. T-Rob is NBA ready. MKG is a really solid player too. Obviously AD would get the Magic's mouth watering the most...but still, a package of any of those players is still a great way to rebuild.

Which brings up another question, will the Magic rebuild...or are they still hellbent on "reloading".

I'm not a salary cap/CBA expert, but I don't quite know how NJ would go about matching salaries in a trade for Dwight. You hear that Hedo/Duhon or someone else would "have" to be added, and that makes me more confused. NJ doesn't have the contracts, it appears, to match Dwight's contract. I haven't heard anyone say "it's not possible for NJ to trade directly for Dwight", however, so maybe I'm overlooking something. I haven't actually played with the trade machine or anything...

Makes sense for both teams...but I feel like trades like this just never happen. That would be more of a "reload", so I doubt the Magic would ignore the offer. I'm just not certain OKC is ready to give up on Russy/KD duo. They can fix their team easily by adding some shooters and a big man who is somewhat of a threat in the paint. That's their biggest issue right now...not Russell Westbrook.

Right now the Nets are at like 23 mil? Something like that, and getting Dwight will take that up a bit, but can still take on other contracts. If they could get Wallace to opt out and sign for less also, that'd be even better. Then they have the Bird Rights to Deron and can sign him for more and go over the cap. This is just me guessing, because I'm not quite sure either

I would do the trade with out G-Wall. Williams/Wallace/Dwight would be damn good. Add in role players and I think you have a damn good team.

Top 3 pick + Brooks + Farmar and the other deal involving Lopez would be enough and then the Nets get back Howard/Turk/Duhon. Orlando would seriously be right on the outside looking in for the playoffs after 1 year of rebuilding, and quite possibly make the playoffs with a young team they'd put on the court.

Nets should have stuck with Favors, Kanter, Brooks, & Lopez and maybe could have gotten MKG... If they dont get a top 3 pick this year and lose Deron smh

That will be a disaster

Could have been:

Lopez/Kanter
Favors/Humprhies
Barnes*/Green
Brooks/Morrow
Harris/Farmar

*being a bit conservative with where their pick lands

But, their billionaire owner made the usual gaffe of saying something to the effect of "we will win a championship in the next 5 years" and so they were stuck making big risky deals.

Or one of the 22 other teams in need of a center. it's a sweet deal but it has as much a chance as the nets winning tonight

Lopez has been said to be pretty good friends with Ryan Anderson, and that he actually likes the city of Orlando. Lopez would be the "man" in Orlando, and would be playing with a good friend. I wouldn't think Lopez would have too much of a problem going to Orlando

You know what you get in Howard, a guy that can't win big on his own, and he has had some pretty good talent around him, he hasn't have a Williams but IMO he shouldn't have too. Williams is going to get him a few additional dunks a game but he's still going to have to do something with the ball, which he can't. He's a bigger stronger prettier K Martin...that's not a bad thing for the right team.
Davis is a talent, I'd rather have a guy like him to build around...Give me Davis and IMO you'll have more to work in 3 years.

Ram we go back years on here, so with love please neverention Andre Drummond again. Dude is a bonafide scrub nugget

He's only a srcub because of effort. WHenever I saw him in UConn I was very unimpressed too. He looked disinterested and didn't seem to be making any impact. But if somehow you can tap into that motor and get him going, he has the upside. A month ago I would have said "no" in a heartbeat too...but the more I look into it, the less he scares me and the more I think he can be something. More of a risk than AD, T-Rob etc, but I do think he has a ton of upside he can tap into. This is the first time in my life I'm showing any "excitement" over him...and it's still lukewarm.

I would do the trade with out G-Wall. Williams/Wallace/Dwight would be damn good. Add in role players and I think you have a damn good team.

Top 3 pick + Brooks + Farmar and the other deal involving Lopez would be enough and then the Nets get back Howard/Turk/Duhon. Orlando would seriously be right on the outside looking in for the playoffs after 1 year of rebuilding, and quite possibly make the playoffs with a young team they'd put on the court.
Problem is they don't even have a GM yet or a head coach yet, so we don't know what system they're going to run, and so on that account, they don't even know if the personnel that they get from Brooklyn and add that with what they already have (without Dwight and Turk) would work for that new coach.

Then we trade for Dwill and we basically go ALL IN!
Then Dwight claims he wants BK only.
Then Magic don't want it to happen
Then Magic finally agree
Then Howard changes his mind at the last minute
Then Deron goes to Russia and Dallas
Then Howard says he wants out again
Then Deron says Dwight or I am out.

Is it me or is this sounding like a stupid soap opera. Hell Gossip Girl is more interesting then this. Don't get me wrong I want everything to go smoothly for the Nets but too much is too much

HOWARD aint no SHAQ on offense,but thats not fair since SHAQ was considered modern day BIG DIPPER, and HOWARD is looked at as a better defender than SHAQ,but many miles apart from off. dominance side of ball....SHAQ would command/demand and entertain getting the ball, HOWARD sets too many screens for a big man, and i dont want to hear its they style, cause SHAQ had same exact style in shooters(tho PENNY was better than NELSON/LEWIS) ,it was SHAQ was more impose his will and seek and destroy,its almost like HOWARD waits for it, as a big man you gotta go off top,not wait til game come to ya, thats for guards/wings considering they control ball pretty much all game

Its not rigged. If the Nets win it they will win it fair and square. However even if it were rigged, it would be too obvious if the Nets win it.

Dwight-Deron-Wallace isnt even a team lol. How can u already judge how the Bulls would fair against them?

Dwight-Kirilenko-Wallace-Morrow-Deron will most likely beat the Bulls. They're just a great fit together. Dwight-Deron is obviously a great combo, Morrow is one of the best shooters in the NBA, Wallace and Kirilenko are great defenders

Let's compare
Derrick>Deron
Rip>AK-47
Lu>GForce
Boozer>>>Morrow (This is the Power Forward position!)
JoNo<Dwight

The trade was bad yes. But there truly is nothing to to change what has already happened. King will still work hard to create a strong team this upcoming year.

If NJ wanted Wallace that bad, why not just throw a 4 years 50m deal at him this summer? No team would come close to giving him that type of money, Wallace would have taken it in a heartbeat. Why GIVE AWAY a lotto pick for an extra month of Gerald Wallace.

He's not even officially on NJ anymore, he can sign anywhere!

Well we can stop with the Dwight to Brooklyn rumors,no way they get D12 without a top draft pick.

Houston
Golden State
Lakers
Clippers
Knicks
Hawks

Let the best team win.

I honestly feel bad for Nets fans tonight.

Your GM made a horrible move.

It's also lame that Golden State tanked clearly on purpose and still kept their pick.

This should be closed now. BTW this in no way shape or form kills the Dwight to B rooklyn talks. Dwight still has leverage and according to most people he doesnt want to play for the Lakers or any other team except the Nets.

The Knicks didnt have assets when they were trading for Melo either

and why exactly does he want to play for the nets is puzzling ?

what do they have outside of deron ?

brook lopez is not another bosh

they still won't even get past miami

if deron williams leaves that would be the biggest bust of a trade for the nets

they lose favors 2010 lottery pick

2011 lottery pick - kanter

Knicks had the assets it's.just that nugget fans and fans of other teams trashed those assets.

So they aren't going to add complementary players to that core group right? If the Nets get Howard that's great, but I personally am not confident at all in a D12 trade.

With no pick to use to bring him in, Deron may look at other options. You can maybe have Sessions at PG and Dwight at C in NJ, Lopez and Deron in LA, and Bynum in Orlando
