damn, this is definitely better than Brooklyn's crappy deal. Now all they need is for Dwight to do a 180. Get him a hooker or two.

bynum - $16,889,000
MWP - $7,258,960

total: $24,147,960


howard: $19,536,360

$19,536,360 x 1.25 = $24,420,450



$24,420,450 > $24,147,960



trade works salary wise

This is not going down....

Who says Howard signs extension Who says Bynum signs on long term?

ORLANDO needs to trade Howard and get this over with... Get young talent from a team that is willing to rent, and call it a day.

Lakers + Giants

I think we will hold onto dwight long enough he will cave and give in to the laker being an option again as they were in the first place before he changed his mind 30 times. He will not like suiting up for orlando this season and he can't take the hate he will get when he does he is a push over we all know this....

So if goes down are we talking about the Bynumare next year. I guess that doesn't work that great.

So they shed one bad deal and take on other. I thought the idea was to shed the bad contracts not swap them

Everyone quiet down I got a joke to tell:

In actual Brooklyn Nets news:


Adam Morrison, the No. 3 pick in the 2006 draft, will play for the Nets during Summer League.
Morrison has been playing overseas for years now and is a longshot to make the Nets roster, but it's excellent to see him healthy and enjoying the game. He is joined on the Summer League team by fellow make-good veterans Julian Wright and Al Thornton.

Bynum needs an extension as well do who cares if Dwight doesn't want to sign an extension he has no leverage anymore. Brooks is above average at best and who knows what Lopez can do. Bynum is a proven all star 18-11 2 bpg.

Scum bag? The reasons he acted that way was because Mike Brown is a terrible coach and Bynum didn't respect him, Bynum showed why he was the next best thing to Howard, better then any other player being offered for howard right now. Bynums first focus was winning, if it wasn't you'd hear it from Kobe.

End of.Manny's career caught up with him I'd say, he was pretty chill in Cleveland I think.

You question calling him a scum bag but go on to talk about how he acted out because he didn't like his coach. And that omits when Phil was coach and he was laying out 160lb dudes while tearing his Jersey off.

Not saying he's a bad player, I just wouldn't be excited as a Magic fan to have him represent my franchise. Just like I wouldn't have liked Ron Artest back in the day, or Gilbert Arenas not too long ago.

Dwight might be really immature and stupid, but until it was time to go he represented the Magic well, especially considering they never got him any help., The mistakes he has made were a result of him not wanting to be seen asanother Lebron ironically.

I said it a million times at trade dead line. The best deal for Howard is Bynum quality is better than quantity. If draft pics are worth so much why dont Nets want them? This is a trade that needed to happen. Bynum need change, Howard need change, Lakers need change and Magic need change. All these changes do not disrupt either team. If Magic trade for Bynum they will compete with Nets. If they trade with Nets they will become sorry like last year nets minus Williams. A Magic had a product on the floor they were a top three team in the East If they trade with nets and not get a superstar in return they will be a bottom 3 lottery team.

If more suitors pop up then it will make the process of trading Dwight a little faster, but that could be wrong too, I think what they want is already being offered, Bynum is who they want, If they truly wanted Lopez and Brooks and all the first picks in the world, wouldn't they have taken that already? The only way that goes down is if they get desperate to take him off their roster and trade him for whatever is there. Bynum is what they want to get back in return, that is why Dwight is still in a Magic uniform after all this fiasco.

If anyone thinks the Nets deal is better than getting Bynum I want to smoke what you're smoking..

If the Magic wanted the Nets deal they would have traded him by now.. My guess is Howard finally comes around and signs an extension with the Lakers as he gets traded here...We can still keep Pau so KB-Pau-DH12 can not request a username change :p

Stop it with this. Dwight is not interested in LA, PERIOD! No extension, means NO TRADE.

Why would Howard sign an extension anywhere? If he's a smart businessman, he won't extend after this season because he'd make over $25M more with a new Bird rights contract in free agency.

If only the Lakers can get a 3rd team to take on Turkoglu. I just don't know who would.

He makes $11.4M this upcoming season.

And a has a player option the following season at $12.2M


Maybe Minnesota might be interested in a veteran like Turkoglu (since that team is so young)., since Adelman coached him back in Sacramento. And Orlando is interested in Beasley, so maybe...


Lakers get Dwight ($19.2M) & QRich ($2.6M upcoming season and $2.8M player option following season)

Timberwolves get Turkoglu ($11.4M and PO $12.2M) and Lakers 1st rd pick

Magic get Bynum from LA and Wayne Ellington ($2M), Barrea (4.4M per for 3 yrs), and S&T Beasley from Minnesota as well as a Laker 1st rd pick.

He is interested in LA since LA is one of the three teams he said he wouldn't mind going to.. So Obviously there is some sort of interest there..

As of now he wont sign the extension, but i dont think he will sign an extension with any team until the next offseason, correct me if I'm wrong, but wont he get more money if he opts out and re-signs in the offseason?

The Nets could do the same thing in different order. I mention the T-Wolves once. The Nets deal has to be final like this.

Nets: Dwight, Q-Rich
Magic: Lopez, Brooks, S%T Beasley, Barea, Johnson and 3 1st round picks
T-Wolves or 76ers: Humphries, Reddick

Turk's contract would be amnesty later.

Here's my question, who can sign him for max next year if la trades for him? The way I see is no good teams will have the money to straight up sign Dwight next year. This means if he wants money and a ring he'd have no choice but to resign... Just my thought.

Sorry, can't amnesty a player if he wasn't on your payroll prior to the new CBA being issued last December.


But he can be bought out before his player option goes into effect in 2013-2014.

But here's the thing...

Bynum >>>>>>>> Lopez + Humphries, that's where the Lakers would win the deal.


And first round picks are just there for "namesake" as most likely any Net or Laker first round pick will be a late first rounder between the 26th and 30th picks.

Lakers will have his bird rights if they trade for dwight or any other team that trades for dwight. If he doesn't sign an extension other teams with cap room can only offer 4 years max vs. the team with his bird rights (5 years max). It pays to stay with the team that trades for him.

While the Lakers do appear to be in play for Dwight Howard, they also have a 'growing list of concerns' on actually acquiring him, according to a source.

Howard underwent season-ending back surgery on a bulging disk and it is unclear if he would actually sign a contract extension after privately saying he didn't want to play for the Lakers.

The Lakers also are uninterested in taking back additional salary in a trade for Howard.

Dwight needs a player like Kobe to mentor him.

Dwight may not think he WANTS a player like Kobe on his butt, but he needs it. Dwight may not think he WANTS a deadly serious grownup uber professional like Kobe being in charge, but that is obviously exactly what Dwight needs, as we can see from his hopeless flailing and foolishness this past year.

Howard wants BK, Orlando front office needs to let 2 to 4weeks pass, and then ask Howard are their any other teams that he would like to add to his list; if the answer is still BK only, then you trade him to one of these teams that will rent him (east or west).

Only team I see that should take a risk on Howard without having him comment first is the Clippers... I think him and Cp3 are made for each other ( no homo )

And why doesn't Howard want to play for NY, if he can't hop on the Nets, he should think about playing for the knicks... Knicks can get 3 to 4 teams to join in on the trade.

Howard is just confusing me right now, but it is his life...

Yeah I agree. This deal would've been done if Hennigan wanted it, also, I don't even know if it's even possible. Hollinger is saying it's pretty much impossible, unless they tweak some of the contracts.

I think a potential Lakers deal will be tough though as well. Not because of what's going and coming back, but both bigs really need to sign an extension.

We'll see what happens. Hopefully another team emerges for you guys, I think Atl will probably give an offer as well, probably not a good one, but an offer nonetheless lol.

Dwight is Carmelo Anthony part deux

An overrated ball hog that is getting way too much attention and credibility

I dont want Dwight on the Lakers. He has ruined his rep with this Magic fiasco and I see him as a marginal upgrade over Bynum AT BEST. I like Bynum better because hes younger and a better offensive player.

The only reasoning I can see the Lakers dealing for Dwight is that he works better with Pau.

I hope Dwight does to the Nets for a rip off package of players and joins the ball hog overrated talents of Josh Johnson.

This whole Dwight saga is sickening and I hate the man for copying Shaq's nickname, being a ****, and attention monkey

Please just make this end and don't let him goto the Lakers im so sick of this guy
