All signs -- coaching finalists, not wanting Bynum -- show #Magic want to bottom out. That strategy requires luck to work.

Lost amid all the D12 speculation is that the Magic have little interest in acquiring Andrew Bynum: http://ht.ly/ckD57

True. They don't want to
...go from DH I to DH II. @JoshuaBRobbins







Although many Magic fans have clamored for the team to trade Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers for All-Star center Andrew Bynum, any potential Magic-Lakers deal faces a significant hurdle.

Magic officials have concerns about the health of Bynum's knees, according to two NBA sources with knowledge of the team's thinking. Bynum's lengthy injury history worries the Magic more than the fact that Bynum is scheduled to become a free agent after the 2012-13 season.

With the Nets out of the picture until at least mid-January and with a deal for Bynum facing a roadblock, the Houston Rockets now might be the front-runners to acquire Howard. The Rockets, desperate to add some star power to their perpetually mediocre roster, are willing to trade for Howard even if Howard gives them no assurance that he will remain with the franchise beyond next season.

I think this news was already out there. That's why Houston and Cleveland are involved. One of them would take Bynum and give up their assets to Orlando.

Houston honestly has the best deal on the table to offer Orl IMO.

I wonder if LA and Orlando's face to face meeting could result in Orlando telling Houston no to Dwight but yes to a 3 team deal sending Dwight to LA and Bynum to Houston? I'm not sure what benefit it would be to Orlando, they're going to get the same stuff back either way, but I also wouldn't put it past today's NBA for the Lakers to have some side deal with Orlando saying they'll pay them cash considerations if they hardball Houston into the 3 team deal. Houston seems to want Dwight or nothing and doesn't want to facilitate Dwight to LA but if Orlando tells them 3 team deal or nothing maybe they budge. The only proposed benefit I could think Orlando would have in this (aside from maybe some shady cash coming from the Lakers) would be the fact that Houston wouldn't panic at deadline and move him to New Jersey keeping Dwight in their conference.

IDK what to think of all this, but face to face talks between Orlando and LA have to mean that something creative like this is being thrown out there.

Thoughts?

I guarantee Bynum isn't extending anywhere. Going to make more money as a free agent rather than extending now. What they are going to want though is a verbal or written commitment to re-sign.

Orlando shouldnt be getting Bynum, Houston should.

Dwight goes to the Lakers, and some of Houston's young assets and Toronto's pick going to Orlando.

Exactly. If not it would just be Lakers and Orlando talking trade. There's a reason a 3rd team needs to be involved. Nothing new here.

Wavey, i don't know if you know, but Brooklyn didn't get Dwight. .. LMFAO. Troll.

Well if orlando was interested in Bynum they would have been closer to a deal with LA. It's been known for a while now that Orlando values picks and getting rid of bad contracts over Bynum, nothing new here.

The third team should be the bulls..

Noah , picks and hamilton for bynum, jason richardson & davis

This is a gamble that could help the bulls future mightly ..

Bynum is the second star we need and it helps that he doesnt take the ball away from rose .. Bynum under thibs defensively could be amazing especially if we keep taj & deng..Richardson gives us that sg that we needed for years now..

This is the kind of trade the bulls need to get to pair up rose with some help an at the same time not only to get another piece but one who has the potiential to be just as dominat as rose...

Rose/teague
Richardson/hinrich
Deng/butler
Taj/davis
Bynum/asik ..

Not if he signs a max extension, which he very well may get offered with guys like Omer Asik getting 8 mil a year.

If I'm understanding it right, the most he can sign on an extension is signifcantly less than the max he can sign in free agency to the team with his bird rights. I'm pretty sure it's because he gains 1 more year of experience by waiting until free agency which makes him eligible for an increase in his max salary...

Not sure if that's nearly enough from the Bulls to manage raking in Bynum. Between the Lakers and the Bulls, neither teams have the assets necessary to facilitate a trade for a player of Howard's caliber. Noah is a talented piece, but picks and an aging Rip is simply not going to net you Bynum plus a better scoring option that Rip in Richardson.

Rockets are willing to give up a boatload of young talent, friendly contracts, and draft picks that will certainly be higher than one from either LA or Chicago (Bobcats future pick aside). Magic would be utterly stupid not to take the deal Houston is offering them.

Still don't understand why the lakers even need to be involved in this trade, when Dwight hasn't said he would be interested in signing an extension there. Why wouldn't Orlando just deal with Houston straight up, they had a real good package before they traded Lowry or with the Nets, Orlando's FO is ridiculously stupid.

You're sig is uncalled for. Im actually very happy to have Rob as a GM. The guy is trying to take control, hes not rushing anything, and making the right decisions. For a young, new GM he seems very composed. Im with him all the way, get draft picks, young players and capspace, and rebuild the right way. Thats how it should be done. He wants to build his own team while trying to clean up after Otis Smith.

I've been saying since last year that bynum makes very little sense on the magic, he will be overpaid, injury prone, kill our capspace, and probably still be inconsistent on both ends of the floor. Bynum is not the type of player you give max money and build a contender around. People thought that it was the right move because we're losing the best center in the league and getting the second best center to replace him, but its not that simple.

I dont care how much longer this process drags on as long as we get a great package.

There's no other explanation as to why they wouldn't be intrigued by the idea of Bynum being apart of their rebuilding process. Adding 1 or two other all star caliber players around him (through draft, trade, etc.) and you have yourself a playoff team for years.
