"Lakers no longer demanding contract assurances from Dwight Howard in trade talks, reportedly bad news for Nets

@IAMAGM
Lakers no longer demanding contract assurances from Dwight Howard in trade talks, reportedly

Jackie Pepper, an anchor and reporter for Comcast SportsNet New England, reported Thursday that the Lakers have notified one of their players that they could be traded at any moment in a deal for Dwight Howard.

RT @WiessD: Source: After speaking w/Kobe & Nash & liking what he heard DwightHoward has told Lakers he’ll sign contract extension with them

Changes everything. If this is true, you can expect Dwight to be a Laker by the end of the week

Progression. Don't want to see that scum win a ring, but it's time to move on. Hopefully a 3-team deal can be pulled off, if not, Bynum and Blake for Dwight it is.

NBA Rumors: Dwight Howard Trade To Los Angeles Lakers Could Happen Any Moment


http://www.rantsports.com/courtcrusa...en-any-moment/


If these deal goes down, I expect it to be soon. The Magic really can not wait for Howard and the Lakers seem to want to fully commit to winning more titles. They think Howard can do that better than Andrew Bynum. I think it is almost a wash personally, but a motivated Howard could do a lot of damage.

Because you are scared that Howard is going to be on a team other than the Nets. No bench? I think Nash, Bryant, Pau and Dwight could carry a team just fine. They wouldn't have a great bench either way, their starters will carry them. Ask the Heat if a great bench matters.

This kind of depresses me but I like Brook and his potential. Before Hump he averaged 8 boards a game. I noticed less effort on boards after the emergence of Hump. His ability on the offensive end cannot be denied. Great post moves, nice mid range shot, good free throw shooter. Would I rather have Dwight of course. I do believe that Brook fits very well with this team and will quiet a lot of people this upcoming season. He averaged roughly 19 pts a game being double teamed a lot in the oh so forgettable "Harris era". Before this lockout season people had Lopez as a top 4 center. It's crazy how things change. I do watch him more than the average NBA fan which does give me more insight than people out of the NY/NJ area.

In the end a Dwight Bynum trade makes too much sense for both sides. It would be amazing to have him in Brooklyn but I am content with Lopez as my starting center.

nobody ....that has nothing to do with what I said

Bynum has a good skill set, arms and frame as a center. He's playing under the shadow of Kobe and Pau and still managed to get 19/12 last year. If he can get 15-18 shots per game average, he is going to average 20-22 easy.

Even if these reports from twitter aren't true, he's going to end up here eventually, if Orlando wanted Brooklyn's offer, Dwight would be in Brooklyn by now... Orlando wont let him walk next offseason, he's getting traded for sure this summer, our Front Office is the best in the business which means we should end up with Dwight once the season rolls around..

If they are okay with just cap space then they should be engaging the renters market to try and get some draft picks.

If all. They have to show for D12 next year is cap space than this will go down as one of the worst trades ever driven by emotion ("we won't send u where u want to go!") rather than logic.

Not necessarily true, the Nets and Magic can be looking for a third team to take hump for a pick. I do believe he's going to be a Laker at this point thought. Would make my life too wonderful if he was a Net lol

Isn't Humphries a UFA? How would they go about dealing him to another team then?

what about https://twitter.com/#!/Jackie_Pepper though


What about the reporter then?

Well she's at least apparently real, but she hasn't said much - nothing about whether Dwight would commit or whether the Lakers would do it without his commitment.

Here's her full story:

The Los Angeles Lakers are considering an offer from the Orlando Magic that would send Dwight Howard to L.A. in exchange for Andrew Bynum, a source close to the situation tells PepperOnSports.com.

I know, I know. You’ve heard it all before. Here’s the fun part:

The source says the Lakers have informed one player that he might be part of the package deal and that he could be traded at any moment.

The Lakers are “very interested” in acquiring Howard, according to the source.

Depending on which hour you inquire about a Bynum-for-Howard swap dictates the type of news you’ll get regarding the topic, so your guess is as good as mine. But as of Thursday afternoon pacific time, the Lakers front office phones were blazing hot with Howard chatter.

Whether or not the trade happens, it sure is courteous of the Lakers to give players with trade-potential a heads up in hopes of making a tough transition smoother. Stay classy, L.A.

And she followed it up with nothing but uncertainty on twitter:

Jackie Pepper ‏@Jackie_Pepper
What I wrote is what I know @Michael_Necci ... will the deal happen? Hell if I know! LOL. But I'm trying to find out, that's for sure.

Jackie Pepper ‏@Jackie_Pepper
Read what I wrote and take it for what it's worth @OMagicDaily. Just like I wrote in the story, this story seems to change every hour.

It's totally a plausible story, but until there's something more concrete from a more widely known source, I'm not taking anything from it.

If they are okay with just cap space then they should be engaging the renters market to try and get some draft picks.

If all. They have to show for D12 next year is cap space than this will go down as one of the worst trades ever driven by emotion ("we won't send u where u want to go!") rather than logic.

They probably see more value in luring Bynum into resigning by selling "cap-space" and "your-team". Bynum wants his own team, I definitely see him resigning there.

Horford is a 15 and 9 player not far off Bynum, he's got 4 yes at 12 mil per on books which seems like a bargain compared to what others are getting, Teague is a young inexpensive PG who can play. ZAZA is a C to get some mins and 5.5 mill off books. Might as well add a pick.

I'm not saying the Hawks deal is a bad one, it's just Bynum is better than Horford no matter how you put it.. His contract is also going to be up at the end of next season, which means if Orlando wants to re-build and get cap space they could just let Bynum walk, it's a win-win for them..


Clippers should and might trade Blake for DH. Also Bledsoe is another good cheap young PG.
I agree, before getting Nash, I kind of hoped we would get one of the Clippers PGs... And I also agree about Blake for Dwight, I also think the Clipps should do that, but the Clippers are making a lot of money with Blake...


IMO Lakers deal is bunk, your getting another soft mentally C who is a baby, and is a free agent and trash to go with him

But I mean, some idiots were raving about Eric Gordon, but he'll never ever sniff an allstar game in his career.

Normally I would agree, but I think Nash is one of the few PG's in the game that Kobe would respect enough to turn the keys over to.

Unlike less accomplished PG's, Kobe will respect Nash, and Nash won't take crap from Kobe.

Not only will Nash get much easier looks for the Lakers' bigs, but he will take the pressure off of Kobe to create for himself and everyone else. Since they started winning their titles in the early 2000s, Kobe was the initiator of the offense and the go to scorer. Now, he can let Nash do the real ball handling. Furthermore, Nash is one of the best shooters in the history of the NBA and the Lakers were severely missing a great and consistent shooter. I thought it was an amazing pick up for the Lakers. Dont think that Nash alone puts the Lakers over the hump of the talent that OKC of Miami have, but I dont think the LAkers are done with just Nash. We shall see.

Nash had the lowest percetnage of his field goals assisted in the entire league last season. He's a great shooter, but he isn't and has never been a spot-up shooter. I agree they'll probably end up with something that works, I'm just saying they're both ball-dominators - getting to a place that works will take time and be because of compromise, not complementarity.

But, it would make the Lakers the front runners to win it all if they did acquire Dwight. But thats a big IF. And until that does happen, OKC and Miami are the two most talented teams in the league.

Well, one thing would be certain, the Lakers would have better talent than Miami if Howard goes to LA. Surely its not that easy. But, it would make the Lakers the front runners to win it all if they did acquire Dwight. But thats a big IF. And until that does happen, OKC and Miami are the two most talented teams in the league.

Well their starting unit will be more balanced. But I gotta see first what they will have on the bench specially when 4 of the starting 5 will be on the wrong side of 30.

So the news I got from a very credible source was what most called and as I said was leaked all day.. Dwight to LA for Bynum.

The deal was contingent upon Dwight signing an extension was the only way LA would do the deal to make Dwight the new face as Kobe ages.

After the Nash deal went down.. Dwight agreed to extend with LA realizing Magic didn't want him in NJ.

LA spoke with Bynum and Bynum agreed he would sign long term with Orlando.

Today LA insisted before making it public they wanted their back specializest to re evaluate Dwights back.. Current, State and future injuries he could get.

LA got very concerned when their Dr today said although his back is recovering well, he feels there could be some concerns long term.

LA is still not turned off but it caused them to sit back for a few and re evaluate the trade.

Orlando is scared for them to wait and wants this done now! They do not want to put Dwight in the locker room nor do they want to let Bynum even play with Nash and give LA hope and leverage in a trade.

Jameers extension was linked because he really was fed up with Dwight and when he heard the trade was going down.. He put his butt in the seat he was waiting for.

Look at the rumors all day and you will see how people are hinting all over this.

One thing is for sure.. Dwight will not be goin to NJ no matter what people say or promise.. The magic want him out the East.

Dirk for PAU!

Imagine. . Nash-kobe-Whatever-Dirk-Howard. . .

Not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, not 5. . . and sooo on. .


well idk, my team is the lakers and i kinda rather have pau, even tho it might sound crazy but to think all those starts are going to need to touch the ball, chris bosh isn't the chris bosh of toronto, and pau can grab rebound and handle the inside way better than dirk, even tho dirk is amazing, he's a superstar, can make his own shots, but as a team i rather have pau. idk any other laker fan give a thought on this??

I also kno mavs would laugh at this trade? lol especially after the fallout of Odom

The thing I am not looking forward to is ESPN pegging us as the favorites for the finals. We have a VERY thin bench and other pressing needs. We still won't be the best team in the West, let alone the NBA. Top 3 in the West for sure though.

I think a team with Dwight, Kobe, Pau and Nash would be the clear favorites. Sure the Lakers still dont have much of a bench, but I think that deal would put them above any other team in this league in terms of talent, thats even including the Thunder and the Heat.

Exactly their is no way a lineup with Nash-Kobe-pau-Howard aren't the favorites! They would be favorites by default! People saying other wise are just well you know.... Yes lakers need a bench but hill is on his way and the mid mle is still available! Lakers will be alright favorites IMO for sure

I think talent has more to do with a team's success than a bench. The Heat should be a prime example of that. The most talented starting 5 in the league won the title last season. There were plenty of teams with a better bench than the Heat, but no teams with a better starting 5.

I can guarantee one thing. IF the Lakers do somehow acquire Dwight, Vegas will have them as the favorites to win it all. There would just be too much talent there. The #1 Center, a top 6 PG, a top 3 PF, and a top 3 player.

We will see if this trade actually goes down... I am exited for the league!

I thought the clippers would have pulled the trigger somehow to get Howard, but we will see.

I'm sure if rose would not have gotten hurt, the bulls would have went all in, even if Howard didn't give them the okay.

And I know posters are not talking about HEAT getting all the calls, Kobe has gotten so many outrageous calls their is no way anyone could ever keep count.

but if Howard does get traded to L.A... I pick them to make it to the WCF, thats all I would give them.

HEAT vs Knicks in the ECF next year too.

I don't care, your still overestimating the effectiveness of a bench. The best teams don't really have a good bench, again the Heat used as an example. Just like the potential lakers team, the Heat's big 3 was just way too strong, just like FREAKING NASH, FREAKING KOBE, FREAKING PAU, AND FREAKING HOWARD!

I don't think you have any idea how scary that looks. You can tweet away "but but...we don't have shooters!"...dude...we have Kobe, Nash, dwight and Pau, your argument is invalid.
