CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Orlando Magic apparently tapped the brakes on the proposed blockbuster four-team trade that would send disgruntled center Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets and Nets power forward Kris Humphries to Cleveland in a sign-and-trade.

In the midst of a 24-hour media frenzy that saw the proposed deal increase from three teams to four, including as many as 11 players, Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel sent out a Tweet on Monday morning that killed the momentum.

"orlandmagic don't expect a deal involving Dwight Howard today. No hurry whatsoever," Schmitz Tweeted. And, yes, he did forget the last O in Orlando.

Sources confirmed that to The Plain Dealer as well, calling reports of the trade "premature." If it gets done, it could take until Tuesday or Wednesday to nail down all of the moving parts. One source told the New York Post the odds of the deal getting done were 60-40.

Yahoo Sports reported that in the proposed deal, Howard, Jason Richardson and Earl Clark would be sent to Brooklyn, and the Magic would receive the Nets' Brook Lopez, Damion James, Shelden Williams and Armon Johnson, Cleveland's Luke Walton and three future first-round picks. Cleveland would receive Orlando's Quentin Richardson, Brooklyn's Sundiata Gaines, Humphries (on a one-year guaranteed deal), a first-round pick and $3 million from the Nets. Yahoo Sports also reported Brooklyn was talking to the Los Angeles Clippers about sending MarShon Brooks there for an additional first-round pick to send to the Magic. If the Clippers decline to participate, other teams are in position to take on Brooks, Yahoo Sports reported.

ESPN reported Monday evening the deal could involve the Charlotte Bobcats replacing the Cavaliers. The Charlotte Observer reported the Bobcats would be interested in Humphries on a one-year deal but that they were not interested in Brooks.

Humphries' contract could be one stumbling block. He played on a one-year contract last year and reportedly is seeking a longer deal this time around, although it's unclear at this point if the Cavs are more interested in his skills or his value as a trade chip. His agent, Dan Fegan -- who also represents Howard -- reportedly had not spoken to the Cavs as of Monday afternoon, though that could change at any time, and he would be negotiating a new deal with Brooklyn, anyway.

Another problem could be the Magic actually would prefer to make a deal with the Lakers for Andrew Bynum, but Bynum will be an unrestricted free agent next summer and has not shown any willingness to sign a long-term deal with the Magic. Yahoo Sports reported earlier that he would consider signing with Cleveland because the Cavs have a lot of room under the salary cap.

The Houston Rockets also have been dogged in trying to remain in the discussion for Howard.

Bynum has had knee issues, Lopez has had foot issues and Howard is recovering from back surgery. Each of those medical problems will have to be thoroughly researched before any deal proceeds.

With all of those things unsettled, it's no wonder it could take a few days before Orlando's new general manager, Rob Hennigan, is ready to proceed with the deal that will define his tenure. Oh, and he also has to hire a coach to replace Stan Van Gundy, who was fired, reportedly in an effort to placate Howard.

I'd probably put trade w/ Bynum extension at the top, but after that this looks pretty good. Depends how much Houston is willing to give, though - could drop them below a Teague+Horford deal.

Been saying it all along. THat deal for the Magic is pure crap. Take your chances with Bynum and try to get him to extend or see if another team like Houston comes in and blows everyones offer out of the water. Just dont trade him to BKN for that trash deal. Step away from the ledge.

LOL

That would be AWESOME...f off dwight, you lose an entire year of game play because you made this all about you and not about the team that dedicated a TON of resources and time on you... the world doesn't revolve around you or your buddies down there in Florida land.

They would trade you, but its hard to get a moving company to ship that super inflated head of yours and your ego is way to big to fit on any truck. maybe you can barrow LBJ's moving company...they had a hell of a time with his ego but they got him there.

Deals get done when deals get done.

You do know that the commish is the one w/ most say? not just the owners. From all accounts this deal is 99% done. You're not exchanging medical records for maybes. I just think the NBA wants the spotlight on them alone. Even Orlando's GM would agree to it if told. They are in Vegas right now for summer league, there's no rush to sign tonight but it's all but done.

No blockbuster ever happens that fast, that statement was written before the trade even progressed to include a 4th team. And my point is that this is not real news, just someone creating another article based on an older quote that is true as of now. They only real hold ups this whole time are whether the Magic pull the trigger and if hump agrees to a s&t.

I just think the Magic are reconsidering the whole thing since Houston is still trying to deal and reports are saying that Bynum never said he wouldn't resign. Also the whole hold up with K.Hump.

this is very true too, and one of the reasons why i kind if call BS on these teams that say they will take dwight as a rental.

How about a rubio, wes johnson, and derrick williams and 2 firsts for howard trade.

There's no reason for him to sign an extension. If he signs now as part of an extend-and-trade, he gets three years, including the year he already has left, and can only get 4.5% raises. If he waits until FA then re-signs with whichever team he's with, he can get 5 years and 7.5% raises.
If he extended now, or as part of an extend-and-trade, he'd be giving up a significant amount of money to facilitate a trade. Unless, for whatever reason, he really prefers being in Orlando to being with the Lakers, then he's not going to extend.
I wouldn't hold your breath on that one. It just doesn't make sense for him.

Bynum has said he would like to play in Houston... so the most logical solution to this nonsense is to sejd bynum to the rockets, send the rockets picks and young players to orlando and howard to LA. Rockets gutted their team and bynum would thrive as the star in Houston, Magic actually get some value that fits a rebuilding team and the Lakers get their man. If the Magic agree to sign Lopez to a max contract as compensation i might :puke:

this... I have been saying this all along...why the hell would he sign a 3 year extension when he could get 5 years next year to the team he is traded to or sign elsewhere for only 4 years... 25 mil difference would be a lot to leave on the table...Also being the man in Orlando would really make him stay...

Cashman had no problem giving up Montero. The deal was complete they had everything in place.

So much for the Yankees’ unwillingness to hand over prospects for three month rentals. Brian Cashman & Co. offered Jesus Montero, David Adams and another prospect, possibly Zach McAllister, for Lee and were 'on the brink' of acquiring him earlier today. The Yankees thought they had a deal for the left-hander, according to Rosenthal (Twitter link), but it wasn't the case. The Mariners re-opened discussions with the Rangers, learned that Smoak was available, and the sides reached a deal.

OMG people! Hello CP3 all over again! YES we know this but the owners know this as well! They are not stupid, they can trade bynum without a new contract or extension cause they are still under contract for 1 year!!! He can verbally say i wont walk after next year but for my best interest im not signing tell the years up and the GMS know this!!! They are not dumb. Bynum will not leave 25 mil on the table!!! He just needs to verbally tell them i wont walk and leave that money on table! AND nobody would!!!!!

Well they clearly don't know that for sure. He's already listed a bunch of other teams he'd like to play for who will have cap space, and I'm pretty sure Orlando don't want to go through all this again at the next deadline with Bynum. You say they'd be '********' not to take it, everyone else says 'rational'. It's a business, they can't just trust his completely non-binding verbal 'yes'. That's screwed teams in the past.

The bigger point is that he could also just say 'no, I won't re-sign with you' in which case they won't trade for him, and he'll just end up getting the same max deal in LAL while playing with Kobe, Pau, and Nash and competing for titles as he would get while rebuilding in Orlando.
You don't think it's possible that making that list of teams he might sign with - teams that really surprised a bunch of people - is his way of making that threat and keeping himself in LA?

Look, we obviously cannot offer as many first round draft picks as Brooklyn. All we have right now is our 1st rd pick from 2014 as we already used up our 1st rd picks next yr and in 2015 to acquire Nash.



Now, what we can offer to Orlando is the 2nd best C in the game and a guy who probably won't reach his potential in the next 2-3 yrs by playing besides Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol.


So this is the way to go.



Andrew Bynum, Steve Blake, Josh McRoberts, Devin Ebanks S&T, 2014 1st rd pick to Orlando for Dwight Howard, Jason Richardson, Chris Duhon and $2M in cash.


Just do it!!!!!

I'm interested too, they never mentioned it, right?


I would see if Toronto would want to get into the mix since they want to trade Calderon. Maybe come up with a package where Bynum and Calderon and a 1st rounder end up in Orlando, Dwight and maybe a contract from the Magic end up in LA and a contract from Orlando goes to Toronto.

That way, Raps don't have to amnesty Calderon and they can shed most of his salary for maybe a pair of players from Orlando like QRich and Duhon and Lakers get JRich. Blake and McBob and maybe Ebanks (S&T) to Orlando.


So basically this:


Lakers get: Dwight Howard and Jason Richardson

Raptors get: Chris Duhon and Quentin Richardson

Magic get: Andrew Bynum, Jose Calderon, Steve Blake, Josh McRoberts, Devin Ebanks (S&T) and Lakers' 2014 1st rd pick.

when you're exchanging medical records and try to pull out, that's like someone giving you the middle finger in trade discussion, I doubt Orlando is trying to give that impression. Jarred Rudolph pretty much said this is what would happen, they are doing a final sweep and then will pull the trigger on the deal. There's no way after exchanging records you pull out, that might jeopardize you getting anything in future deals. Esp since that's a new owner/gm.

I think that might be sort-of true in regular trades, where medical records come at the end, but in a situation like this where both centre-pieces have had injuries and both teams are trying to convince the other it's fine, then I think it makes total sense for the records to be exchanged much earlier in the process, and I don't think such an exchange implies any commitment to the deal.
They might just not want to spend a week getting the little details together only to find out one of the guys has been unacceptably injured or something all along, so they get it out of the way earlier.

You have said this countless times today. Ric Bucher himself said on Sportscenter this morning that just because they have exchanged medical records doesn't guarantee that a deal will get done.

I didn't say it is and it's not guaranteed, but when you exchange medical records it usually does. B/c you're releasing private information of a player, usually it's a verbal agreement. When you pull out of these deals, you damage your team's reputation and damage relationships w/ gms for future deals. Orlando being in the rebuilding stage will need to have a good relationship w/ other gms. This would just piss them off and question their interest in future deals.

Well they clearly don't know that for sure. He's already listed a bunch of other teams he'd like to play for who will have cap space, and I'm pretty sure Orlando don't want to go through all this again at the next deadline with Bynum. You say they'd be '********' not to take it, everyone else says 'rational'. It's a business, they can't just trust his completely non-binding verbal 'yes'. That's screwed teams in the past.

The bigger point is that he could also just say 'no, I won't re-sign with you' in which case they won't trade for him, and he'll just end up getting the same max deal in LAL while playing with Kobe, Pau, and Nash and competing for titles as he would get while rebuilding in Orlando.
You don't think it's possible that making that list of teams he might sign with - teams that really surprised a bunch of people - is his way of making that threat and keeping himself in LA?

Im saying if Bynum indeed say he didnt say that he wouldnt sign with them then the Magic would be dumb not to look at him. There are obviously a lot of false stuff being put out there! If he didnt say that im sure he didnt say the freaking Cavs as a spot either. The fact is The magic prefer Bynum and Bynum wants to be the man and if he does tell them hey u have to take my word i wont walk and WHY would he!? He wants to be the man - Check, Bank in every city - check Magic could offer him 3x anyone else - check

If im the Magic you have to roll the dice on that and take a chance JUST like the LAkers would have to do with Dwight cause the Lakers are daring him to walk away from more money and they will prob win a ring as well. Anyway this is all on the fact that Bynum did indeed say hey i never said that! There has been so much BS and false reports.

I know that Nash was Knick according to everyone and that he said it would be to hard for him to put on a Lakers jersey and how did that turn out!?!?!? LMAO

Look, we obviously cannot offer as many first round draft picks as Brooklyn. All we have right now is our 1st rd pick from 2014 as we already used up our 1st rd picks next yr and in 2015 to acquire Nash.



Now, what we can offer to Orlando is the 2nd best C in the game and a guy who probably won't reach his potential in the next 2-3 yrs by playing besides Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol.


So this is the way to go.



Andrew Bynum, Steve Blake, Josh McRoberts, Devin Ebanks S&T, 2014 1st rd pick to Orlando for Dwight Howard, Jason Richardson, Chris Duhon and $2M in cash.


Just do it!!!!!

we cant trade the 2014 1st.

Right, he said they were doing a final sweep.....almost 24 hrs ago!!!!!

Exactly, he told WFAN NY to expect that. Orlando will do a sweep through, call LAL and whoever else see if they can get a guaranteed player to stay, when they don't, they'll have to take the Nets deal b/c at this point it's the best deal out there. He even called Brook Lopez (Captain Planet)


He said Magic brass would do a final sweep, sleep on it, and make a final decision tomorrow (aka today).

negative, he said they would do a final sweep through before taking the deal.


I say just get this **** over with and send Dwight to Brooklyn already. This is what he wants, this is what ESPN and their 2 biggest dickriders in Ricardo Bucer and the dancing albino queen Chris Broussard have wanted for a yr now.

The Magic should be looking out for the best intrest of their franchise first and foremost, if another team ups their bid they have every right to reconsider.

Okay. Sure. If Bynum never said there are other teams he'd like to play for, and if he facilitated the trade by saying he'd definitely re-sign with Orlando after the season, then sure, maybe that would allay Orlando's fears enough to go for it. Fine.

But as far as we know, in reality the opposite has happened - he hasn't given them any guarantee and he has got a list of teams he'd like to play for, and on top of that it doesn't make any sense for him to facilitate a trade in that way when he could just stay in LAL, keep competing, earn the same max money, and still be the man in a few years time when he's entering his prime.

I get what you're saying. I get that if he verbally committed to Orlando that would be a show of good faith and might get it done. But so far we have no evidence he's done that, have no reason to think we would do it, and in fact have evidence of the opposite.
So I'm just saying let's not get too excited about the possibility just yet.

Well we are now on same page then lol and dude im far from excited i just want dwight to go somewhere and do it now. Lakers dont NEED dwight and with Dwight coming off his first real serious injury to a back where that lingers thats scary and im suprised thats not a concern for anyone? He would def be crazy dangerous with Nash though with that high screen but Bynum will also have a breakout year with Nash. Howards heart is in Brooklyn and as a Laker fan i only want players who will bleed purple and gold and we know where he really wants to be. Magic are realy getting screwed tough thats only 4 sure thing in all of this if sent to Nets.

Still don't understand why Cleveland or Charlotte would help facilitate a trade like this? If small market teams want to retain their draft picks that turn out to be stars why accommodate a team that the player specifies he wants to go to.

Dwight will not be in a Nets jersey unless he is traded to them. Soooo don't trade him to the Nets. Get the best possible offer you can get and if he decides he doesn't want to re-up let him walk and be able to choose between like 4 teams.

Orlando need to stop acting like a bunch of girls and just trade howard to brooklyn or to any other team for assets. this should not be this complicated. the truth is howard could have just walked and orlando would not have gotten anything. howard is no slave and he does not have to be forced to stay forever in orlando

What are you talking about? They regressed since the 09 finals. One knucklehead move after another.

Would you like for me to lay it out for you?? Well...here it goes!

1. After coming within 3 wins of the NBA title in 2009 after losing to LA, and by not having their young PG Jameer Nelson all healthy (shoulder), they still achieved a lot!

2. They matched Gortat's offer from the Mavs, which was great, but then they didn't bring back their best shooter, passer and best clutch and crunchtime player in Hedo Turkoglu. They decided to do a S&T to Toronto.

3. Then they got rid of Skip to my Lou, they traded away their rookie for Vince Carter and Ryan Anderson (who is now freakin Gustavo Ayon, which is Hennigan's official first real trade, lol).

4. They got rid of their stretch 4 in Shard Lewis for an injury prone overpaid Gilbert Arenas!

5. They wouldn't give Turkoglu that new contract, but yet ended up trading for him anyways after he was damaged good mentally with subpar stays in Toronto and PhX, and in the process, they got JRich, but gave up their best perimeter defender in Pietrus and also gave up Gortat (who btw they kept over Turkoglu because they couldn't afford to keep both by their stands) and Carter (who was Courtney Lee). I mean WTF?!?!?!?!??!!?

6. Then traded for guys like QRich and Duhon (2 of the bad contracts they're trying to get rid of at the current moment).

7. Then traded Brandon Bass to the Celtics in a S&T for Fat Baby!




You tell me man. You tell me! WTF did they do for Dwight.


Absolutely NOTHING! They killed the chemistry of the team they had in the 09 Finals.


Just putrid dumbass work by Devos, Martins and Otis, and now Hennigan.

Howard wanting Brooklyn makes pretty much no difference at all anymore if LAL trade for him, and they know that. Of course he says he wouldn't extend with LAL now - because he's trying to get traded to Brooklyn - but once he'd been traded to LAL and the Brooklyn dream is dead, I'm sure he'd reconsider that stance, and LAL would be pretty sure of that too, I think.

How is him complaining about being their and being so negative helping them? How is him DEMANDING a trade helping them? How is him trying to force the issue HELPING THEM?

See...if he was all that he thinks he is...he would be trying to recruit big name to play around him...not him trying to bolt and making such a big deal out of himself and how he MUST be traded.

I get it...he is a star and we should all bow down to his desires....:facepalm:

its a good thing there is a lot of money to be made or lost by these owners...because if it WAS just a hobby for them, it would be awesome if they kept him this year, but sat his sorry *** on the bench the entire year....making him lose a year of his career and his career stats go to ****. That would teach these big headed players who think they have total control over everything something something about who is really fitting the bill and in charge. Love to hear the players union grip over his lack of playing time...LOL

Players should never think they can dictate ANYTHING especially publicly when they are on a teams payroll.

Nothing. He can demand all he likes. But his options if they hold onto him are going to be to re-sign with them and compete for championships immediately while making max money, or take less to go and try to build something with one of the few teams that could afford him, like Atlanta, Dallas, Houston. As long as the Lakers think he'll choose the former over the latter, then they're golden and Dwight's Brooklyn desire means absolutely nothing.

Oh boy :facepalm: This is all I'm going to say for this quote.



P.S. Nobody gives a rat's *** if you don't want to live in LA.



your post screams of cockiness and spoiledness as a laker fan. I have never heard howard say anything good bout L.A or playing there. he wants brooklyn and does not want to play with that ball hog kobe. In brooklyn howard would be the main star out of the big 3. in L.A howard would just be another star behind kobe and others that have played there before.

Plus L.A is full of earthquakes so why would dwight want to go there:confused:

I dont blame the magic being hesitant to make this move in conference.

It take them like 5 yrs to build a team to compete with this Brooklyn team they help build.
You want a 2-3 year plan, not a 5 yr plan.

Have you been following the News, we have Steve Nash who was recruited by Kobe to come to the Lakers.

yeah and as soon as nash passes Dwight the ball more than kobe all hell will break loose. especially if lakers get off to slow start. we all know kobe has an ego from hell and he wont accept being a #2 option at this point yet. Howard knows this so he wont go play with kobe. and i dont blame him cause kobe is a chucker

You can dissect my post all you want but you can't answer my question, when has dwight ever said anything good bout going to play for L.A :confused: Kobe dissed howard by saying they don't need him and that bynum is best center. plus howard wants to start a new legacy in bklyn. He does not want to live in L.A. If he did he would have said so by now

"Yahoo Sports reported that in the proposed deal, Howard, Jason Richardson and Earl Clark would be sent to Brooklyn, and the Magic would receive the Nets' Brook Lopez, Damion James, Shelden Williams and Armon Johnson, Cleveland's Luke Walton and three future first-round picks. Cleveland would receive Orlando's Quentin Richardson, Brooklyn's Sundiata Gaines, Humphries (on a one-year guaranteed deal), a first-round pick and $3 million from the Nets. Yahoo Sports also reported Brooklyn was talking to the Los Angeles Clippers about sending MarShon Brooks there for an additional first-round pick to send to the Magic. If the Clippers decline to participate, other teams are in position to take on Brooks, Yahoo Sports reported. "


So the Nets get Howard, Jason Richardson and Earl Clark.
And they are sending out Brook Lopez (and his max contract), Damion Jones,Shelden Williams, armon Johnson, Brooks and draft picks?

Can anyone tell me what draft picks they are sending cuz this deal is looking SWEET for Brooklyn.

if the magic had any balls they would trade him to whoever gives them the best deal and say **** your feelings howard, your prima dona *****.

A move like that right there gets that new GM mad props from me and might even get him the Exec of year award. **** you dwight and **** what you want, have fun in charlotte(or some other bottom feeder)

Oh what a great idea, Orlando should accept the best offer. How come anybody couldn't think about that before. You are a genious.

And you think Charlotte or another bottom feeder can give them the best offer, they are bottom feeder for a reason. For the first time my 7 years in psd, i'm gonna do it :facepalm:

If there are team that want him but don't care if he signs an extension or not. Why aren't those teams trade partners. Just trade him to anyone that will give you something good back.

Even though things look complicated right now, I still believe that this deal will go through. All that is remaining is a third team committed (CLE or CHA). I project a deal gets done by July 12th. If not, then Lakers fans should come out of the woods.
