I understand that he is the biggest name on the market,

But I see 4 DH 12 threads on the 1st page alone.

1) Dwight to LA
2) Philly+ GS Want Dwight
3) Charles on Dwight
4) Dwight appealing opt in
5) Jammer+ Dwight altercation
6) Magic Begin Trade Talk for Dwight..

Get the point?

Thanks bro,

I remember two year's FA when LeBron, Wade etc were FA's, and they each had their "official thread", so each twitter update for them didn't create a new thread.

Just trying to clear this cluster ****.

As the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston Rockets and other teams prepare possible trade offers for him, Howard told Yahoo! by phone that, "There’s only one team on my list and if I don’t get traded there, I'll play the season out and explore my free agency after that."
Howard wouldn’t specify the team, but multiple league sources believe that it is the Brooklyn Nets.

I think the Lakers should still go after Howard. I believe D12 is just not happy with his current team. Give him a year with the Lakers then he could and would probably completely change his mind about only signing with one team.

This is a what a "hurt" and angry player says right now. He wants out, once he has his team (Lakers) he will play a season and hopefully get far (finals or ring) and decide this is my best chance at winning. Plus the fans will love him.

Again I have to explain this, it is known around the league Dwight does not want to follow in the foot steps of Shaq. He wants to create his own legacy as well as be the #1 option.

He has denied signing an extension with the Lakers twice already, I think it has become clear he does not want to be in LA.

Again he already failed with his "own legacy" he needs to go to a contender with another superstar if he wants to win. He can continue one of the greatest legacy in history. Would be really stupid to pass up on the opportunity to play for the Lakers. He basically screwed the nets opting in his contract.

It depends if you actually believe the guy, seeing that he tends to talk from both sides of his mouth I wouldn't really believe anything he says. He showed his hand last trading deadline on what's really more important to him...actions speak louder than words.

Personally i don't really want him on the Rockets, I hope the Magic trade him to the highest bidder and not the "one team on his list", give him a big taste of reality Orlando.

So going to Brooklyn and playing with DWill wouldnt be playing with a star? Being the face of the Brooklyn Nets wouldnt give him a chance to start his own legacy? I'm not sure what you're getting at here.

Well that is true that he would be playing with a star. My point is, if the nets get JJ and other to jam cap space. Means he has no way of going to that team. So other then the Nets and Lakers going to another team to "build" a legacy makes no sense.

Ill bring up a few of my former quotes about JJ to explain to you instead of just retyping it:


From everything I have put together from this, I think this trade is a bluff, a fabrication.

I think this is a way to put pressure on Orlando. Nets are the only team out their that can give them cap relief, a center, a promising young player, and picks. The Magics options are limiting by the day , especially with Houston out.


Both GMs aren't that stupid, if the Nets had an offer to take Johnsons contract I think the Hawks would do it in a minute, they'd free up space to give Josh Smith the Max, and add more youth to the team with a OJ Mayo and a FA SF.

This info maybe being leaked out on purpose, like the Melodrama stuff.

It makes more sense to me then limiting our space to do anything for the next 4 years.

And I think the Nets know Howard wants them, they're trying every angle they can to get full leverage, and Dwight is helping out as well.

Yeah I agree about him not wanting to be in Shaq's shadow. I mean people saying that it's because of "Kobe being a ballhog/bad teammate" just doesn't add up.

If he says he wants to play with the Nets, and the Nets only... well then he's also saying that he doesn't want to play with Lebron, Wade, Durant, Russy, Dirk, Melo, CP3, Love, and every other star in the NBA outside of Deron.

Dwight Howard told Yahoo! Sports on Sunday that he would only re-sign with one team, and Adrian Wojnarowski writes that multiple sources believe that team is the Nets. Howard has demanded a trade and this puts the onus on any team that's interested in him to risk losing him after he plays out the final year of his contract. Of course, it's a power play to scare away other teams and land in Brooklyn, who is probably the favorite to land his services. The Magic can huff and puff about holding him or trading him to the highest bidder, but like the Nuggets with Carmelo Anthony they have no leverage -- and the Nets don't appear to be as stupid as the Knicks were, and Howard doesn't have the working relationship with the Magic that Carmelo did with Masai Ujiri.

This is the first time that Howard has ever been quoted as saying something like this. He never publicly demanded a trade or mentioned the Nets or even acknowledged his "list". Everything else was just crap from sources.

The only leverage I see that Orlando has is the ability to trade Dwight to a team that is just willing to rent him. The number of teams willing to rent him seems pretty low, and that gives Dwight a decent amount of leverage. Orlando has a little bit more leverage than Denver did with Melo because they'd be renting out Dwight for a year as opposed to half a year. It's just my opinion I guess, but I'd say Dwight has a majority of the leverage.

It's true. As much as PSD killed Carmelo for the Denver thing, he made sure that they got something in return and didn't mind waiting a year to rebuild the roster around him and Amare.

Dwight on the other hand doesn't care about what the Magic get. If he did, he should have taken the potential draft day trade to Houston and walk to Brooklyn or get traded their by this year's deadline.

He's made himself look worse than any star asking out of their franchise in ALL sports.

See this just contradicts his whole position. If he wants the Nets and Orlando doesn't deal him there and lets him walk, well then Brooklyn probably won't have the cap room to sign him outright. So then he'll likely have to choose another NBA team.

A league source said the Nets are determined "not to wait around" for a Howard deal to materialize, as they did in December and at the March trade deadline. CBSSports.com



A source close to the situation confirmed reports that Howard requested a trade yet again Friday, telling new Magic general manager Rob Hennigan that he wanted out during a meeting in Los Angeles. The source said the Magic are open for business on trade calls now, and various reports indicate that talks are heating up with the Hawks, Lakers and Nets. SI.com



League sources believe the Johnson-to-Brooklyn deal has a strong chance of happening in the next 48 hours. If it does, it just goes to show you that you can have any collective bargaining agreement you want -- there's still no substitute for having one of the richest men on the planet own your basketball team.

If its true that Dwight will not re-sign with any team, Orlando would be forced to trade him and by the Nets re-signing D-Will and the JJ trade not happening, the Nets would be able to get Dwight by trade, just throwing it out there.

I don's see teams wanting to give up assets just renting Dwight and not re-signing him. That would be the worse for your franchise. Look at Carmelo in Denver, wanted Knicks, but Nets had better offer, but Anthony had power and that caused the Nuggets to give Melo what he wanted. If your Orlando, what would you want from your franchise? Letting Dwight go with NOTHING, or getting assets with a really good, healthy Lopez, rising talent Marshon Brooks, and draft picks, while getting rid of J-Rich or Hedo's contracts? YEAH, i thought so.

I don's see teams wanting to give up assets just renting Dwight and not re-signing him. That would be the worse for your franchise.

Teams like the Rockets would do it because Dwight proved he blinked once by opting in, trade for him and dare him to take less money, he'll blink again and sign long term. The Nets have ZERO assets. Lopez is nothing but a soft ***** who averages 3 DRPG, lol being 7 ft and averaging just 3 defensive rebounds per game, he's soft and passive. The Nets no longer have room to tang on Hedo or J-Rich. Sorry bub.

You can't tell me that the Nets can make a 3-team deal in order to get Dwight? Your just saying that because of think of an Orlando-nets only trade. I can see a T-Wolves or Bucks, Magic, and Nets deal that can send Dwight to Brooklyn this month or before the season starts in 3 months.

He's not a great rebounder, but can improve in the coming years.

8.3 mil per season. Overpaid, yes. But they're still determined to get Howard too. Houston has a better chance of landing Dwight and keeping him then the Nets do. And if Billy King trades for Joe Johnson, say bye bye to Dwight for good.

To me, the JJ situation is just to pressure Magic to trade Dwight. Houston, agree has better package, but I still don't think they get Dwight without Dwight signature on the paper on his next contract. Jeez, I've said this about 4 times now. Also, Dwight has made it clear that he'll re-sign with one team (if you didn't hear it on Yahoo!sports) that is The Brooklyn Nets.

But Dwight opted in because he wanted to be traded to the Nets and be able to sign a birds rights max extension, which he could not sign with the Nets because Houston would have held his bird rights. They believe, if he is traded to Houston, he will resign because that money means alot to him. If it didn't, then he would have opted out.

All you keep saying is that nobody is going to trade for dwight because he said he only wants to go to BK. However, multiple sources from people who actually know what they are talking about are saying the Lakers, Rockets, and GS are still heavily interested in "renting" him and hoping he will resign. I'm gonna go ahead and trust ESPN more than you're claims that teams are "bluffing" just because you want him to go to BK. Sorry dude, but the Nets have nothing to offer.

In March, the Rockets remained steadfast in their willingness to “rent” Howard and stayed involved in talks with the Magic. At the Toyota Center on trade deadline day after the dust cleared, I was told that Rockets GM Daryl Morey was the last one standing in the Howard chase. Weeks later I was informed that when Rockets front office personnel called it a night in the wee hours of the morning of the trade deadline, they believed they were going to land Howard later that day. The 6-foot-11 center reversed course and agreed to not exercise his opt-out clause to become a free agent, instead staying with the Magic for another year.

It wasn’t until this week that we could say it definitively — multiple sources tell ClutchFans that had Dwight not opted in, he was coming to Houston in a trade.

(If I could add here some speculation — while no one has told me this, it’s been my theory since the deadline that the Rockets nearing in on a trade for Howard may have played a role in Dwight’s decision to not opt-out and instead stay an extra year in Orlando. By being traded to a “rental” team like the Rockets at the deadline, any chance of getting the max years and max raises from a team on Howard’s preferred list would have been killed. He either would have to get that from Houston, or take less from someone else — sign-and-trades no longer give the best of both worlds, as they did under the old CBA. By staying another year in Orlando, Howard bought more time to work a trade to a team he chooses. End theory.)

What are the Magic waiting for? Get this guy out of town! Take whatever you can get and start building the Magic up again. They need to also dump Hedo, Glen Davis, and Jason Richardson.

The Magic are bent on keeping a competitve team so they can pay those Amway Center bills but they insist on keeping a guy (Howard) who has told them in every way he can (without being the bad guy) that he's not going to come back.

It's G-State or Houston call. If they want to screw their franchise by giving their assets without Dwight re-signing there, then they don't know how to build teams. Its not my call, its my opinion and yes, I'm a Nets fan, NJ or BRK, it doesn't matter. I want Howard, by what it looks likes and what was in the past leads me to thinking the Nets will eventually land Dwight in trade or FA in 2013 "barring a trade for JJ".

This is the first time that Howard has ever been quoted as saying something like this. He never publicly demanded a trade or mentioned the Nets or even acknowledged his "list". Everything else was just crap from sources.

I think if you dont believe him now your in denial

Chill you really believe anything Dwight says, cmon you're better than that.

Sorry bub.

If reports are acurate about Morey talking to the Magic then im sure that he is banking on this, Dwight can say all he wants but like I said, actions speak louder than words. I honestly think if he was to be traded to the Rockets for example he would eventually change his tune and sign a long term deal. I do however think he would likely start *****ing again and become a distraction on wanting to go elsewhere once he has his deal inked.

Who is more responsible for this Howard tragic? Its common knowledge Howard wants out of Magic. Now like a school girl he could not make up is mind he went back and forth all year but it has been steady he wants out. I know it was hard or is hard for Magic to do that but it must be done. It should have been done at the dead line but instead they are back were the started and even worst they they let it went on way to long and had to fire one of the better coaches and the GM lost his job as well. Screwed up the whole organization. As for Howard he is still a pain in their you know what. Why dont they just trade him already. Players should not have all this power. There is no turning back at this point so just get it over with. Word out is he will be move in the next few weeks why not the next few days better yet hours. Good lord look at the offers and pic the best one so you can go into the season with a team. By the time you trade Howard all the players will be under contract. Howard must be right about you guys. You have been dancing around this music way to long. The music has already stop and the band has boarded the bus get off the dance floor. Build your team move on.

I think most of us are growing very tired of primadonna players thinking that they are entitled to doing whatever they want and going where ever they feel like. They are players. They are employed by teams, not the other way around. It's time that an organization took a stand and said, "ya know what, we don't care where you want to play. We are going to do what's best for us, and we could care less if it makes you happy or not." Not to mention that Dwight doesn't want to go to places that have already won championships, established dynastys, etc. because he knows he can't live up to his own hype. He doesn't wanna go to Houston because he will never live up to Hakeem. He doesn't wanna go to LA cause he will never live up to Shaq. He has the mentality of a scared little boy.

Both are at fault, but I place more of it on Dwight.

Sure, the team hasn't done enough the past few years to put a championship contending team around him, but the team was just that for a few years prior. They went all in to continue to get better in the short term, and then meant adding contract. That's now coming back to hurt them. Was it the right move? Probably not. But the only way to get back to the top really is to be a bit patient now. Dwight isn't patient, and that's his prerogative I guess. But how he's handled that has been piss poor.

Also, we don't know if SVG was fired because of Dwight or not...but that perhaps was handled poorly too. Martins at times has acted unprofessional.

It's hard to bring in a star when the key pieces to your championship runs (Lewis, Nelson, Hedo etc) are older and expensive. When you maintain a level of success that the Magic have (top 5 winningest team over the last 6 years) you aren't going to easily accumulate cheap young talent. Look at how OKC, Miami, Chicago even Boston etc. have reached the top: high draft picks and huge amounts of cap space. That was the Magic's formula too a long time ago (Howard #1 overall, big FA signings). They just peaked and now have to save face. It's not an overnight fix.

Dwight has every right to want to leave...it's just how he's handled it that's the problem. If you want to leave, so be it. Just do it in a normal/proper manner. This waffling, this team-chemistry killing and his earlier desire to play GM and act above the entire franchise were horrible. Just play out your contract, or if you want a trade ask for one and move on. The team doesn't have to respect that request...and he needs to realize that.

Why does it make him look like a "douche" because he doesn't want to sign with anyone else :confused:

Are you against players playing for who they want to play for?

I think most of us are growing very tired of primadonna players thinking that they are entitled to doing whatever they want and going where ever they feel like. They are players. They are employed by teams, not the other way around. It's time that an organization took a stand and said, "ya know what, we don't care where you want to play. We are going to do what's best for us, and we could care less if it makes you happy or not." Not to mention that Dwight doesn't want to go to places that have already won championships, established dynastys, etc. because he knows he can't live up to his own hype. He doesn't wanna go to Houston because he will never live up to Hakeem. He doesn't wanna go to LA cause he will never live up to Shaq. He has the mentality of a scared little boy.


What you are saying did happen the first 50 years of the league. Players have more power now. Good for them.

Butler is another horrible contract. They already have horrible contracts in Turk, Duhon, QRich and FatBaby. They don't want an old, aging, declining and injury prone bad contract.

This could get interesting now. Supposedly Wallace still hasnt officially signed his deal, so while Dwight to Brooklyn looks grim, he could be packaged with Lopez, and Marshon.

Marshon would be an exceptional talent off the bench. He's instant offense. I wouldnt trade him right now at all. While this might not seem so great, having Green and Brooks coming off the bench (Marshon rotating at PG/SG Green rotating at SG/SF) really gives us a nice punch.

Any team that is willing to give up talented players for a one-year rental is just not thinking. And the one team he wants, which seems to be the Nets, don't really have anything to offer. Both Lopez and Humphries are free agents this season so they'd have to agree to a sign and trade if they wanted to move these two players, which neither player may want to do. I can't believe Howard is appealing his opt-in either. That is just rediculous. SMH.

Now that the big market of Brooklyn is out, don't be surprised if he ends up in Philadelphia. It's another big market, and it's a team who can give up the most out of anyone for him. If the new ownership can convince him to sign an extension, a package of Holiday/Iggy/Young is more than they would get from anyone else...

07-02-2012, 06:57 PM
Golden State, both LA teams, and Houston seem like the only places Howard could potentially end up this summer, via trade.

If he was traded to GS I dont see what's so bad about it. The bay area is nice and he could be the face of the franchise.

I dont think he would want to re-sign with the lakers (when you think lakers, you think Shaq/Kobe/Magic....) I doubt he wants that.

The clippers dont have the assets to get a deal done (unless Griffin is included). But out of all the teams he's been rumored to be traded to (other than the nets). I could see D12 signing and extension with the clippers. Obviously the franchise hasn't done anything significant....ever. So he could start fresh there.

Houston has a nice package but very unlikely he re-signs.

Dwight has brought this situation onto himself. All I know is that I want him traded so these rumors can stop until next summer at least.

Like I said, it's a win for both sides because the Sixers want to put people in the seats and it's a big market for Howard to go to and not be hated like LeBron.

I mean, it makes sense.

Dallas has literally NOTHING to offer though. All they have are expiring contracts...and Dwight himself is an expiring contract. Can't see it happening.

Poor Dwight :laugh:

Will sign with Dallas and wait for Dwight next year.

You can tell ESPN is making this crap up. Dallas is losing out on Deron, oh wait, Dirk and Dwight? Yes! Let's run with that.

Don't want to face the facts that Magic will prob keep Dwight or he will now go to his hometown, freshly cap friendly, Hawks.

You guys can delete this post if you want but come on.....it makes sense, and it does not involve trading Blake.

With CP3 recently turning down the 3 yr 60 mill extension from the Clips its obvious his mind is on playing for the Knicks. Nobody leaves that much money on the table, especially risking injury, without having some secular motive to play elsewhere which begs the question.....why not swap the two stars? Howard for Paul? In doing so the Clippers could then turn around and orchestrate a sgn & trade for Nash featuring Deondre Jordan as the center piece and adding a potential first. Thats better then anything the Suns would get for Nash unless it was Nash himself resigning.

From the Magic standpoint they get a pick and a super star that they can then turn around and swap mid season if they so choose and from the Clippers standpoint.....they turn themselves into the team to beat in the NBA.

Chad Ford:


Prob best option RT @WindhorstESPN: Considering Atlanta is home + friends Josh Smith & Morrow are Hawks, new option for Dwight Howard?

Maybe because the two teams aren't talking about it :shrug:

I mean, LAC has pieces...but it makes sense why they wouldn't be interested. Unless they're CERTAIN Dwight will sign long term there, it's not at all worth it to trade assets for him.

Howard for Paul doesn't make sense either... because I assure you that one, probably even both, would decide not to sign long term for their new teams.
