these dudes cant catch a break



Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA
Bynum has shown no inclination to agree to an immediate extension if sent to Orlando as part of a Dwight Howard package, sources tell Y!


Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA
Among Bynum's short list of potential free agent landing spots in 2013, Houston is prominent with Dallas and Cleveland, sources tell Y!

Adrian Wojnarowski ‏@WojYahooNBA
The Lakers are far more confident Howard would have reasons to re-sign with them, than Magic have that Bynum would in a rebuild in Orlando.

He's due for a max offer wherever he is traded... and as a matter of fact, he is due for max offers in free agency from outside teams as well.

With that in mind, Orlando won't be his first option even if they can sign him to an extra year.

Houston, Dallas or Cleveland.

If he goes to the Cavs:

Kyrie
Waiters

Thompson
Bynum

Varejao off the bench and probably another high pick in the '13 draft. A lot of cap room. Next OKC

That extra year is overrated for players who are locks to get a max deal. Player gets that year in an extension anyway.

Bynum did once say something about all that matters is that there's a bank in the city he plays for. I think if they did trade for him, he'd end up staying, but you can't take that risk. We'd be able to offer the most money (plus no taxes)...but yeah.

This sucks. But I've kinda been resigned to the fact that we're going to be doing business with Brooklyn. So I'm already prepared for disappointment. Too many weird factors with LA. Houston, although interested, doesn't really ever seem to actually be grabbing ORL's attention...

I forgot Noah is the picture of health and Deng is so in demand cuz teams were jumping at the chance to get him when you were desperately trying to get a lottery pick for him... oh and i forgot that Humphries wasnt doing what he does ever since he became a Net and not until Deron got there did Hump learn to become a rebounding machine...

You can't even say Brook Lopez is an injury prone player. Prior to this year, Lopez was injury free. This year, injuries hit him all at once, and then people suddenly are calling him injury-prone. And Dwight Howard doesn't want to stay in Chicago.

I don't like Bynum. But he'd make us better in all likelihood, and that's all that matters. It's been well know around here that I have always been FAR from a Dwight-lover. My fellow Magic fans have even questioned my fandom because I'd be so hard on Dwight. I don't like how he handled things with Van Gundy early in their playoff success (said a lot of stupid things in 2009). I always felt like he was wasting a ton of potential and not growing enough. I never felt he was a tremendous leader. Don't get me wrong, I loved rooting for him, he just never was one of my 3-4 favorite Magic players...

I never loved Dwight, and it never got in the way of anything. I'll probably never love Bynum...so little will be changing. I might actively dislike Bynum, but I'm sure I'll grow to not hate him...

I've seen you praise dwight when he deserves it and I've seen you rip him a new one whenever he's said or done something stupid as well. I know you're not a Magic homer or Dwight nut hugger at all.

I feel the same way about kobe tbh. I know i have 24 on my name but He's the player I praise the most when he deserves it but I always bash him more than any other laker.

I really hope lakers do end up getting dwight, just because IMO he would be a better fit with Nash than Bynum would. It just seems like that's not likely now though. :cry:

Spurred1
07-08-2012, 07:22 PM
It's not insanity it's smart business

It is insanity for Dwight to keep flip flopping-he had his chances to leave, declined, and now wants out. He's essentially holding the Magic hostage by announcing he'll run to the Nets next summer, so they basically have to trade him there because most teams aren't going to want to risk gutting a team/losing a major player for him only to lose him a few months later. If he were smart, he would have opted out and gone to the Nets this summer or pushed for the Magic to trade him there last season and held firm about that decision instead of the constant wavering.
Bynum is out to get paid, the team itself doesn't matter-so he's smart to hold out for more money when he can get it.
The Magic are being smart about this in that they are trying to get the best package for him so they can eventually get this over with and try to rebound from this Dwight nonsense. They need to find the best deal to help their franchise, not Dwight.

I dont understand half the people in this damn forum. One sentence and you guys look like idiots. Bynum and Howard trade still has the best chance at going through. If the Lakers did tell someone that they are about to get traded then it is going to get done. You don't risk that type of chemistry killer unless it is going down. Especially with what happened with the cp3 trade.

With all the articles I have read I still believe that Howard is going to LA. Doesn't make sense for him not to. Lopez is not even close to a max contract center. The dude has no defense or rebounding. Also didn't even score that well with Dwill being is PG. give me a break... They guy isn't that great and the Magic would be much smarter to go with bynum then howard.

Also all this article says is "bynum won't sign an IMMEDIATE extension with the Magic"... That doesn't mean he wont sign one... Swear stupid bipolar people.

The problem is that it's not what the Lakers want, the Magic are the one's who have to pull the trigger on a deal for it to happen. On Lopez I agree, any logical NBA fan can see this and im sure the Orlando GM is also aware of it.

Well I still dont think the magic try to build around that bum... I think they would rather take their chances with Bynum and if he does leave (which he probably wont) they have a huge cap relief. if they get rid of howard and turk/jrich.

By the end of next season, I guarantee that Lopez, brooks, picks, and whatever they get for Hump, will be thought of as better than just Bynum.

People are overrating Bynum, and underating Lopez, plus a future big time scorer in Brooks.

Dwight alone trumps them all, so I want him, but if the Lakers offered the Nets Bynum for Lopez, Brooks, and picks, hypothetically, I would never, ever do that.

Dwight alone trumps them all, so I want him, but if the Lakers offered the Nets Bynum for Lopez, Brooks, and picks, hypothetically, I would never, ever do that.

lopez is nothing special. Yea he can score, but is a horrible defender and rebounder.

Houston, Dallas or Cleveland.

If he goes to the Cavs:

Kyrie
Waiters
?
Thompson
Bynum

Varejao off the bench and probably another high pick in the '13 draft. A lot of cap room. Next OKC

Could trade Varejao for a Sf, maybe Leonard from the Spurs?


play with Kryie Irving, Dion Waiters, Tristan Thompson or Gustavo Ayon

Ayon and it isn't even close. :pity:


If he wants to go to cleveland he might as well throw milwaukee on the list

Lol why?


So now the Bulls would have the best offer right? Noah + Deng + Picks for Howard? Still better than Lopez + Humph Who + ???

But I don't want this clown anyway...

Then why post the offer? :confused:


u kidding right? So u rather take Lopez (Injure prone) Chris HUMPHRIES (whos just putting up this numbers becouse of D WILL) and couple of fillers instead of a solid rebounding and great defensive Center like Noah and one of the best lock down defenders in deng + a good scorer?

Alriiiiiiiiiiiiiight.......

Noah gets injured more than Lopez.

I no I am late to the party... But **** I was right...

everyone was worried about Howard, but the most important person in all of this was Bynum.

I am going to eat a big *** cookie now :)

Lakers should've already had Bynum extended if they planned to trade him.

Although, from what I'd understood, if you handed him a pen right now he'd sign a max extension.

But yeah... Bynum is a willful guy, and been blasted for immaturity. If his agent is hearing from Dallas and Cleveland (tampering, anyone?) then maybe Bynum says "hold up a second, I want to wait."

Really, Orlando is the team that eats it cause nobody wants to play there. Maybe they get some picks and that's it for Dwight. Or maybe a double sign and trade next Summer.
Or maybe Lakers win the title with Bynum and Pau, and Orlando and Howard can just suck it

Again, I'd bet anything that Bynum signs an extension once he's shown the money. Orlando doesn't seem to be willing to take that chance though.

If Bynum won't sign an extension and the Lakers reaaaaally want Dwight, then Orlando should ask for Bynum and Gasol. Then if Bynum doesn't resign they can trade both players at the deadline and really start a rebuild the correct way

Bynum is likely going to have a monster season. I mean if he put up 19 and 12 last year, you have to think that Steve Nash will get him 1-2 easy baskets extra per game.

Bynum is also in a contract year... we all know that typically means stats elevate. Gonna be interesting to see what LAL does. I think he signs long term with the Lakers by the deadline of next year. It's his preferred choice, and I don't see that changing.

no way. PAU is gonna have a monster year

it makes more sense to do the pick n roll plays with nash n gasol

bynum is gonna get alot of clean up points

Bynum has zero experience with a good pick and roll PG. Would love to see how he does with the best one in the business.

When Nash gets a high ball screen from Pau and gets into the lane. I mean, it's going to be scary. The defender guarding Bynum has to make a decision. Take Nash, help on Pau or stay on Bynum? Someone will pick up Pau because that'll be too easy and I honestly think Bynum is going to get a ton of lobs/easy points off of that.

He is going to be lost on Offence... Nash is a smart player, all passes will be going to Kobe & Gasol...

Another way to look at it is Dhaq and Nash didn't work and Shaq was in very good shape and more skilled than Drew in their one full year together.

Orlando doesn't want Brooks or humphries just Lopez. Brooks easily was the best thing in the deal, our GM isnt on my good side. So were getting bk and now Cleveland trash? I pray a hump goes to philly

What the heck?

Drew is more skilled, but Shaq was more powerful.

Now, to your "didn't work" point. Shaq had a resurgence in Phoenix playing with Nash. In 08-09 (at age 36), he averaged 17.8 and 8.4 on 60.9%FG in 75 games. That is his highest FG% ever in a season in which he played more than 37 games.
