Dwight doesnt want to be there, so im sure Deron is going to hop on over there...

I know the way Deron works he isnt even going to consider Houston sorry

Yeah, I think that was the idea from the start. In order to convince Dwight to sign long-term, they're gonna need another star, especially one that Dwight wants to play with.

They have the cap room, sounds like a no-brainer.

lol Nets fans being closed minded on Deron leaving? Nooooo.

If Dwight goes to Houston I bet he'll be talking with Deron about joining him there, and I would think the likely hood of that would be very strong.

The Rockets are trying to put together a trade for Dwight Howard without an assurance that he would sign an extension.

A source with knowledge of Howard’s thinking said Monday that there was “not a chance” he would be convinced to re-sign with Houston if traded there. Howard would leave during the summer of 2013 to sign elsewhere.

Howard has given no indication of planning to sign a long-term extension with the Magic

Everything about your statement is false. Houston is an amazing place. It has everything Dwight has said he wanted...which can be taken with a grain a salt since he said he wants warm weather but wants BK...he's just a dumbass...but any ways...

Houston: Big market, Warm weather, salary cap that would enable them to pair Dwight with Deron who he "wants". Deron/Parsons/Dwight is a damn good legit 3.

If Dwight didn't recruit Deron to play there...well...he's an idiot because quite frankly, Dwight will have no other way to play with Deron. The Nets have to sign players, and I doubt they sign a bunch of one year contracts in order for them to suck again and then go get Dwight. The Nets need to move on and Deron does too unless he wants to suck for the duration of his prime years. Nets are the worse run franchised in the league (now the Otis is out of Orlando)

yeah, thats definitely true considering its the 4th largest city in the country and more NBA players reside in Houston in the offseason than any other city.

Great players like Clyde Drexler, Charles Barkley, Scottie Pippen, Steve Francis, Tracy McGrady, Ron Artest, etc all definitely didn't request trades tot he Rockets during their careers :rolleyes:

dwight has all sorts of reasons to go for houston. it makes more sense than most destinations honestly. the nets had their shot imo and blew it.

You would think one of the worst and smallest fanbases in the NBA would be a little more humble... now they are acting like they root for the Yankees. Rockets are a great franchise and Houston is a nice market, Nets have zero assets so Dwight may have to settle for the Rockets like CP3 did for LAC. Nets have ZERO leverage now and absolutely no assets... stop acting like Nets are the only destination for Dwight.

The Rockets currently have 3 1st but can not use all of them in a trade for Dwight. The Nets currently own the Rocket 2013 1st rounder. They could only use 2 in a Dwight deal. #14 and #16 plus some average players isn't landing Dwight.

They are still trying to get into the top 10 cause they know they don't have enough to land him yet. The Raps are already denying that they are dealing their pick for Lowery so the Rockets still need to make move in order to pull off a Dwight deal.

Lopez > #14 and #16

Here's the deal alright if ANY of you believe that Morey would give up all of those assets just to watch Howard bolt don't know anything. Say we trade for Howard by the next trade deadline if it's a sure thing that he won't resign with Houston hell be traded again Houston won't be left empty handed whether he stays or goes its a total win win situation. Either he stays and you build from there or you re trade him and get a haul in return just for taking a shot at trying to make it work.

Source close to Brooklyn PG Deron Williams says Houston not likely to be added to his free agency wish list even if the Rockets get Dwight Howard. Williams is focused on the Nets or Dallas, his hometown team. If Williams felt differently and headed for Houston, and Howard signed the extension that no one thinks he'd ever sign, I'm guessing Rockets GM Daryl Morey would then be given a 27-year extension of his own.

I'm guessing this is a bluff, much like the "no chance I'll re-sign" leak from Dwight's camp last night. To me, what's obvious is that Plan A for both Dwight and Deron is to team up in NYC. If it weren't, you wouldn't hear reports on Deron being torn between the Nets/Mavs. The Mavs are clearly the better basketball situation, and it's home. Deron is hoping the Nets have an ace up their sleeve in Dwight, and Dwight clearly wants to go (Woj report last week that he's demanding a trade to NJ before free agency).

The biggest obstacle to the Nets getting Howard, though - just like at the deadline - is the stones of Daryl Morey and his willingness to do a deal without any guarantee of an extension. Orlando has zero reason to send Dwight to the team of his choosing, and the Rockets clearly have more to offer than the Nets. (Interesting reversal of the Jazz/Nets/Rockets dynamic two years ago when the Favors offer trumped us for Deron.)

The camps of Dwight and Deron see what's happening, and there's not much they can do about it... except for one thing. That's to scream from the rooftops about how neither has any interest in Houston, won't sign or re-sign, etc., etc. I'm not buying it. It's a last-ditch ploy to try and salvage the NYC dream. Make the deal, let it blow over for a few days, and show up on Deron's doorstep (with Dwight in tow) on July 1. I like Houston's chances.

The biggest obstacle to the Nets getting Howard, though - just like at the deadline - is the stones of Daryl Morey and his willingness to do a deal without any guarantee of an extension. Orlando has zero reason to send Dwight to the team of his choosing, and the Rockets clearly have more to offer than the Nets. (Interesting reversal of the Jazz/Nets/Rockets dynamic two years ago when the Favors offer trumped us for Deron.)

The camps of Dwight and Deron see what's happening, and there's not much they can do about it... except for one thing. That's to scream from the rooftops about how neither has any interest in Houston, won't sign or re-sign, etc., etc. I'm not buying it. It's a last-ditch ploy to try and salvage the NYC dream. Make the deal, let it blow over for a few days, and show up on Deron's doorstep (with Dwight in tow) on July 1. I like Houston's chances.

Um no thats what you WANT to believe, so in this case they want to go everywhere else but HOuston so they are just gonna commit there? NO! You dont understand NOBODY wants to play there!

I dont see 2 future Hall of Fame players and a Coach of the Year not to mention Bill Russell waiting there to convince him. Only reason KG stayed.

That's sort of my point. Once the extra piece got added to Boston (Ray Allen), KG was willing to commit. In this case, if Deron williams were to go to Houston, Dwight would likely change his tune about not willing to play there. Obviously there is no guarantee this will happen, but to discount Houston's chances altogether isn't really fair.

They also have Hakeem and Kevin McHale waiting there to convince him which is enticing to a big man like Dwight.

Have you seen a quote directly from Dwight? No. Only "sources" and people in his camp because they want to market him in Brooklyn. Same thing with Deron's agent. Too bad Dwight opted in at the deadline, or else he could have been a Net and Deron would have re-signed. Now Dwight has no control over where he goes.

lol you're delusional if you think Morey won't put a team around him that'll compete for years. Doesn't matter though, because if he leaves, then we can tank properly and be bad enough to get a top pick, unlike the Nets who are dumb enough to trade their picks for people like Gerald Wallace.

He's worked with Olajuwon in the offseason and to be fair you don't know anything for a fact you probably don't even know what your mom is making for dinner so STFU. Houston's the 3rd largest city in the US with plenty of upside including a wide open West with LA and San Antonio declining his chances of a title in Houston are better than they would be in NJ even if Dwill stays there.

All this talk from (sources) is nothing more than PR bull$h!t in a last ditch effort to control where Howard and Dwill play for the next 8 years nothing more. Houston has zero to lose by making the move they either get him and he commits or they move him at the deadline for a haul either way they end up better than they started.

If he commits Dwill comes aboard and Morey adds around them and were contending for a title yearly the possibilities are endless hell it's even possible they land Gasol to go along with them wouldn't that be something.

Even if they don't get Howard Josh Smith and Gasol are almost as good of a consolation prize. Some are even speculating a Josh smith move would be a precursor to getting Howard since they are childhood friends. Howard/Jsmoove/Dwill/Gasol are all in play right now and 2 or 3 of the 4 guys would mean instant success in the West you think we got haters now just wait.

Inaccurate statement their (people or supposed sources) say they want no part of it neither of them has been quoted directly on record as not wanting to come here. And Howard has no choice so it's all PR $h!t in an effort to control his fate in the end it doesn't matter his hands are tied. Until either of them go on record dismissing Houston and even then it bears no relevance the wheels are in motion and the momentum is picking up. I honestly think Howard is too ignorant for his own good unless all he's interested is money because that's all he or Dwill will get in NJ it won't be a title that's for sure they won't unseat Miami at any point in the next 4-5 years in the East. The best thing is he gets paid AND wins in Houston something NJ can't facilitate.

Im just telling you facts! It has been reported Dwight doesnt want to go there...you dont have to convince me anything, I dont live in Houston so I dont need a history lesson from you. DWIGHT WANTS NO PART OF THE HOUSTON ROCKETS.

you sound like an idiot. It was reported that Lebron wanted to go to NY. It was reported that Dwight wanted to go to LA. Then it was reported that he didnt want to go to LA.

Just because something is reported or isnt reported doesnt mean its true. Dwight could grow to like Houston, especially if they put a winning team around him. Houston does have marketing appeal--its the 4th biggest city in America. Greater houston has 5 M people.

People act like its not a major hub, and thats because the national media ignores houston. its a great city. booming economy right now, one of the top places for young people to move to. texans have created a stir in town. its a great place. lived here 20 years. its got a southern feel to it--people are really nice.

was that billy king? no it was rod thorn as his going away present

and again you choose to ignore a quality supporting cast that I previously listed

like i said, you can go away any time you like.

luis scola is better than everyone on the nets. as is kyle lowry. patrick patterson is a better prospect than anyone on the nets. marcus camby is a better bench player than anyone on the nets. and gerald green? LOL

the irony is that i couldnt care less where he lands. its just fun toying with rage posters

I feel me and waveycrockett actually have good posts where we can speak objectively but we get taunted by knicks fans on a regular basis... if you choose to ignore that then thats fine

but I disagree with your opinion of us

A quote from another user that demonstrates how a lot of posters on PSD feel about Nets fans:


Do you truly not realize why there is hate for the Nets? It's because half the fanbase (I'm not necessarily calling you out) acts as if Dwight is already on the Nets. The Nets doint acquire Dwight, then half the fanbase leaves the forum until the next Nets rumor surfaces. Again, I'm not saying your one of those fans, you dont seem to be, but the reason Nets fans catch a lot of flack isnt really random at all.

You've all literally brought this upon yourselves.

Guess you'll always have Jay Z no matter what lmfao. Too bad it doesn't count for much on the court where games are decided. The thing is I feel pity for the Nets fans but it doesn't excuse ignorance in any way and most of you are taking your frustrations out on others instead of the franchise where it should be directed and that's unfortunate. But your fate was decided the moment Lebron went to Miami and not Howard or Dwill will ever change that.

I respectfully disagree with the point that you are being objective. For example, saying that the east has nobody to contend other than the Heat and Pacers is just plain foolish.

I think if you look at this objectively you can say that both Houston and Brooklyn provide solid oppurtunties for Dwight and Deron but neither one is CLEARLY superior to the other.

If you want people to see you as an objective fan, it would be wise to not take cheap shots at other franchises and realize that not everyone hates the Nets. In addition, just don't respond to people who are clearly trying to fight with you.

Obviously the Heat and Thunder will be favored for the forseebale future, but to say NOBODY has a chance is a bit ridiculous. Teams develop and sometimes teams get hot (2011 Mavs). Who would have said that the Bulls would make a run like they did last year. They developed chemistry and turned into an elite NBA ball club. This is why they play the games, because if not we would just annoint the Heat and Thunder EC and WC champions for the next 5 years.

dragic is much better

Lowry outplayed Dwill for most of the year last year check the stats if you don't think so. Dragic is good but he's not a better player than Klow especially on the defensive end. Before Klow went down Kmart also went down when you lose a top PG and a top 10 scorer in the most crucial part of the year with no stars around chances are you miss the playoffs just how it goes. Bit a good rule of thumb is if you don't know wtf you're talking about don't look foolish by making ignorant comments.

You're wrong on both accounts again. Lowry wants out because of Mchale not Dragic FACT look it up it's on psd.

I already said a few posts back the Rockets went down at the END of the year when they lost Kmart and Klow are you just not reading before you post? You failed yourself posting your opinion vs facts like Klows spat with Mchale which is why he's being traded.

It's facts man we have assets and flexibility the Nets don't that's not an opinion it's the truth. And if you truly feel the need to defend yourself or franchise to strangers on a forum I fear you have some deep seeded issues that are unresolved. IF anything Houston is always overlooked not Brooklyn even though we're bigger than Dallas and San Antonio we're overlooked and that's alright.

Okay now you're just being a homer straight up Klow was a top 3 PG before going down. He was more productive than Dwill most of the year numbers don't lie even if you do. Why even talk $h!t about the Rockets missing the playoffs when the Nets have been probably the worst NBA franchise in the last 20 years also a FACT. You don't even have an argument against that only poor excuses and reasoning it behooves you to keep your mouth shut talking trash about other peoples teams when yours is much much worse.

Wow this is very interesting. If the Rockets are able to make a trade for Dwight Howard I'm sure Deron Williams will strongly consider the Rockets over the Mavericks. Heard the Rockets are trying to get a top 10 pick by trading all 3 of their 1st round pick or some picks and players for a top 10 pick. Along that they will likely package a top 10 pick which they will try to acquire with Kevin Martin, Chandler Parson, Kyle Lowry, and Patrick Patterson for Dwight Howard. Cash, draft picks, and player fillers will also be included if necessary. On top of things the Rockets have a pretty good chance of landing Diwght Howard if they are able to trade for a top 10 pick. Rockets can try to trade Luis Scola and all 3 of their 1st round pick to get a top 10 pick.

Honestly, the whole city bashing by Nets fans needs to stop. Yes its true reports say Dwill and Dwight howard do not want to come here. But to say "NOBODY" is an insult. If Dwight really thought about how much money he could make here in houston I think his opinion would change. Houston basically has China as a fanbase because of Yao and any star that comes here is going to make HUGE bucks off of them.

Now i know he would problably make HUGE bucks in Bk, I mean come on its BK. But at least he isnt getting traded to like a small market with no chance of signing a good supporting cast around him.

If he bolts next summer oh well, The rockets made a play and now they can start to rebuild this team through the draft like the Thunder did. I think its a win win for Houston. I originally hated the idea of this trade but im liking it more and more.

At the end of the day we cant control what these players do so lets just chill sit back and enjoy the show on thursday and during Free agency because either way its going to be fun to watch. Lets not get caught up in what these reporters report. We all know how accurate they are.

Yeah im sure Dwight is going to start recruiting people the minute he is traded to a place he doesnt want to be...nobody wants to be in Houston.

Nobody wants to be in Houston? What do you know? Not only is there plenty to do there in the 4th largest city in the U.S., but the Rockets have a lot of money to spend on free agency AND have 3 first round picks. So they have a ton of options.

You've been saying this for quite a long time and I've always agreed with you on this. Once you get hold of 1, maybe even 2 top ten picks and you have a chance at getting Drummond and others studs, why not just take it? I'm honestly not certain if I'd be willing to blow this team and potentially 3 or 4 good picks for a one year rental.

Everyone keeps saying it's a win win because we get to rebuild if Dwight leaves anyways, without overthinking other options. How is it not the perfect opportunity to start rebuilding NOW, when you have 3 top 20 picks in a draft that is claimed to be really deep, along with the opportunity to acquire one or two more lottery picks.

Trade away everyone, including K-Mart, Scola, Lowry and start from scratch with Dragic, Lamb, Parsons, Moultrie, Drummond. That team could very well be the new OKC, while you still have enough capspace to sign the whole FA class of 2012.

I'd take that over a team of Dragic, Lee, Parsons, Scola and Dwight (who walks away after a year) and leaves us with a crappy core, yet still no chance at drafting bottom 5 because the team is still too decent to suck a lá Charlotte. Then you start a cycle of waiting to arrive a superstar through FA or the 14th pick in the draft all over again.

No he's not flashy or dunks but hes a top PG defender and he's also pretty good on offense.

I swear you've probably never watched him play an entire game.
If you had, you wouldn't make asinine comments like this.
