The Magic don't give a **** what Dwight or Fegan wants. If Houston offers the best deal, he's Houston bound, and so is Deron.

I've read quite a few reports stating that had Dwight not opted in last season he would have been dealt to Houston. Therefore in my opinion it puts Houston in the lead to land Dwight because Orlando already knows what can be offered, and other teams will have to up their offer. Plus Houston has cap space and a PG who wants to be traded as well. Houston could land a top 10 pick then flip it draft night.

lol I explained why in this situation, the star doesn't dictate where he goes because Brooklyn has NOTHING to trade for him. They can't even get a third team in because they have zero assets. No draft picks, nothing. Houston, IF they acquire the 5th and 8th picks will flip them for Dwight. Dwight can be pissed all he wants, Orlando will take the best deal instead of preferred destination. Sorry buddy. Orlando would let him walk before they traded him to the Nets. Deron is gone too :cool:

Good luck with Orlando not trading Dwight to Brooklyn. Mainly because of Lopez's stress fracture. Once you get stress fractures, they keep coming back.

Ok but he ISNT injury prone , and he rebounds fine he also plays Center next to a TOP 4 rebounder. So as long as the team is rebounding whats the big deal? im sure if Humphries wasnt playing next to Lopez he would rebound a lot better. And so according to you rebounding makes a big man then I guess Humphries is one of the best PFs...Lopez is one of the best low post scorers in the game.

all these nets fans think lopez and marshon will get it done? what a joke. rockets have lots more pieces that are more attractive. lopez is an injury prone center who doesnt rebound, and marshon did well in his FIRST year.

whos to say marshon has any higher trade stock than chandler parsons? parsons was excellent on the defensive side of the ball, and his shooting really increased over the second half. add that to lowry, an all-star snub last year, and marcus morris, a lottery pick, with two top 10 picks, and the rockets can get it done.

they still have lots of movable pieces too, like kevin martin, courtney lee, budinger, and scola are all solid players.

The only way Howard stays in Houston is if we get to the NBA finals. And i dont see that happening with this line up:

Lee
Parsons
Patterson
Howard

which is what we will have left after all the trades. Now if Dwill came to Houston then I can see the Finals for Houston, but the chances are really really really slim. I hate the idea of blowing up the roster for a rental but maybe Morey knows something we dont.

Howard

which is what we will have left after all the trades. Now if Dwill came to Houston then I can see the Finals for Houston, but the chances are really really really slim. I hate the idea of blowing up the roster for a rental but maybe Morey knows something we dont.
Why hate the idea of blowing up the roster? The team has ZERO potential as is and has no one to build around. They aren't blowing up anything of significance. Even if they dont get howard, they should trade up for those picks and package martin, scola and whoever else for more picks.

David Aldridge:
One league source said the Rockets hoped to make deals for the additional Draft picks using existing players, so they would have as many as four first-rounders they could put in a package to Orlando for Howard. One potential deal, according to a league source, would send Martin to Minnesota–presumably for the Wolves’ 18th pick in the first round–where Martin would play for former Rockets coach Rick Adelman; Martin had success playing for Adelman during their years together in Houston. But rumors of a Martin-Adelman reunion in Minnesota have been thrown around for months.

Wow Orlando could have up to 5 top 20 picks, 2exp and cap relief, too good to be true. Possibly the biggest haul in history. Hennigan would be the new Otis to pass on that.

You took the words out of my mouth, three straight years with the 14th pick gets old really fast.

This latest rumor just confirms that Morey is possibly close to a framework for a Howard trade that Orlando would accept.

It's no secret that Howard wants Brooklyn but they don't have the pieces to outbid other suitors. IMO this was leaked by Dwight's camp in a last attempt force his way to his preferred destination.

Please do this Daryl, all in. Worst case scenario Howard bolts and you can finally convince Les for the Rockets to rebuild.

I dont hate the idea of blowing up the roster. I hate the idea of blowing it up for a rental. I love the idea of trading up in the draft though.

Lowry is worth a top 10 pick for sure. I'd imagine he's better than any PG in the draft, and he's not terribly expensive.

Raps just came out and said they aren't interested in trading the pick so there goes that one.

"Sources say Houston has an offer of Lowry, the #14 and #16 picks for Tyreke Evans and the #5 pick on the table. Up to Sacramento to decide."

Houston is gonna pull this off. I just have a gut feeling.

Lowry has the kind of contract that GM's in the new CBA crave.

what would make him change his mind in houston??? the team is worse than orlando currently and would be even worse when they trade martin and lowry
Nah, he would definitely be in a better situation in Houston. And Morey has proven capable of building a championship caliber supporting cast, he has just lacked the stars. I dont think he can do enough to entice Dwight (unless other stars follow him) but its worth the risk.

They could use the assets for J Smith if the Howard trade doesn't pan out.
