"Dwight's position has remained unchanged since the end of this past season," said Dan Fegan of LaGardere Unlimited. "He fully intends to explore free agency at the end of next season, regardless of what team trades for him, including Brooklyn."

where is KB at?...dwights own agent is refuting what that rudolph clown said

Justinnum,

Rudolph said that Dwight will sign long-term with the Lakers. Meaning he has given his word to Lakers brass that he will beyond 2013 in a Lakers uniform (not specified as extension or just becoming a free agent and Lakers owning his bird rights).



His agent is basically saying the latter, that he'll test free agency in 2013. He wants whatever team that gets Dwight to own his bird rights next summer so they can sign him to a more lucrative deal. More money for Dwight long-term means more money for his agent, so coming out and actually saying this is an incentive and motive for Dan Fegan.



I take the time out to explain these things to you because you're okay in my books. You're very wise Justinnum. Don't buy into the crap waveycrocket, Losoway and jmoney85 use to brainwash other posters.

Howard announcement to the Lakers doesn't say anything about agreeing to an ext..

Howards Agent just clarifying between an ext and signing long term through Bird Rights..

Big difference ..

We all need to calm down, nothing was ever said about an ext..

07-20-2012, 12:30 AM
that is just smokescreen.

FINALLY his agent is putting a lid on things. He's decided for LA, so, no need to make a drama or publicize it. Just quietly get there within next 12 months

We all knew Howard would wait till after the season to re-sign. After ALL the coverage of this story, everyone should at least understand that much by now.

The cool thing is that Dwight now wants LA the way he used to want Brooklyn... but there is no reason for Dwight or his agent to say that.

Sad...

The funny thing is what if the lakers don't have Howard or Bynum when the season ends next year ( Bynum could just walk away and Howard could have been traded somewhere else ).

To me the Lakers are not showing Bynum enough respect ( I would love for the HEAT to have someone like Bynum) and Howard just wants to play for the nets ( even though he would have to be traded their ).

If the lakers get Howard good for them, but trust me HEAT fans aren't "scared" of anything right now, you can say we have are championship blinders on.

Anyone would do what the lakers are doing with Bynum, Howard is an obvious upgrade why not try and get him. Do you think that if the heat were offered Klove or Blake griffin (both with extensions) for chris bosh they wouldn't take it?

This isn't any news. Dwight Howard said he will commit to the Lakers but he won't sign a extension. If Howard signs now he will only get 3 years and if he head to free agency he could earn up to 5 years worth 108MM. So smart move by Howard

he hasnt said anything. It's Jarrod Rudolph a source close to dwight howard
who broke the news.

and then later today Dan Fegan Dwight's agent came out and said
Dwight wasn't signing an extension with anyone and wants to test FA traded or not traded.

Metsboi69
07-20-2012, 01:44 AM
I'm a Nets fan and I've said since the Gerald Wallace trade at the deadline that Dwight would end up with the Lakers, not even the optimism of two weeks ago had me confiden of BK landing him. Somehow someway I think he ends up in LA before the start of the season. Now if by some wild chance he starts the season in Orlando, well then its anybody's guess.

smiddy012
07-20-2012, 01:44 AM
I hope to god DH hasn't opened up a Pandora Box of FO manipulation by superstars. The fact that one player can hold a FO hostage by forcing a trade to ONE team is pathetic to say the least.

DH makes Lebron look like the most mature superstar ever the grace the NBA, that's how sad he is.

Mr. NBA
07-20-2012, 01:46 AM
it's funny that Andrew Bynum's agent David Lee hasn't gotten any calls.

There is no way Andrew Bynum is getting traded without his commitment to signing an extension with either Cleveland or Houston.

So has anyone called Drew's agent? NO!!!

and then Dan Fegan Dwight's Agent says no to extension and yes to FA

so no matter what talks are going on between Mitch Kupchak, Chris Grant, and Rob Hennigan

without these commitments and no framework of a deal, it's pretty much out the window.

i'm sure they are mingling on the phone, but are talking without commitments from drew and howard.

expect more proposals and different deals to come...

07-20-2012, 01:54 AM

he should want a championship, but not just to win one for Kobe, where dwight wouldn't get much credit for it. it would be all about "OMG Kobe 6 rings!", Dwight shouldn't be a hired gun, hitman to win for Kobe, that's weak sauce. he already has Nash as his lacky now.

If Pat Riley had Bynum, you wouldn't hear any trade rumors, he would be a HEAT for life.

Now about your Bosh comment, k Love would fit are style of play so thats Pat call.... but Griffin, Pat wouldn't do it, Bosh is apart of the HEAT family.

Bynum to Miami... I had to get that out, don't mind me :drunk:

FOBolous
07-20-2012, 02:12 AM
what about a championship? I thought dwight wanted to win rings and make money...i guess not?

well if he wants to test the market next year...literally the Rockets, Cavs, and Mavs are the only teams that can offer him the max. If he wants a championship...the Rockets and the Mavs should be the teams he goes two. Those two teams have owners who are dedicated to doing whatever they can to win championships...while going at it in a smart way.

or he could be traded to the Lakers and resign with the Lakers :shrug: but I really don't see what the Lakers can offer Orlando...Bynum said he won't extend with Orlando and Orlando doesn't want him. and the Lakers doesn't have the draft picks and young prospects that Orlando want.

call me a crazy Rockets fan, but I personally think Howard is going to get traded to the Rockets. Only the Rockets have the combo of young prospects and draft picks that Orlando wants.

well it's not all Rob Hennigan's fault. Rob Hennigan has just taken over for the former GM Otis Smith.

Dwight Howard has been promised a team that was poised to make a championship run. Dwight never got that from Otis Smith.

So Otis Smith gets the hammer, and then comes Rob Hennigan
who's been put through crap to get rid of Dwight Howard because
Dwight Howard is whining and complaining after the Magic have failed
to make a championship squad around him.

The funny thing was Dwight Howard opted in to stay time after time
in believing that the Magic FO were going to build a title team around him.

So now it's not happening and Dwight wants out. Rob Hennigan has tried and
tried to get a deal out (of course even pleaded for Dwight to stay) but
nothing has been imminent because they're trying to juice the best deal

for Dwight Howard before dwight leaves Orlando for free agency.

and now the Magic FO with GM Rob Hennigan have until the start of training camp
to get rid of Dwight Howard with the best deal.

Dwight Howard's agent Dan Fegan meanwhile insists Dwight will not sign an extension with ANY team now
because going through FA means max money for Dwight.

So no team is looking at the Magic deals seriously or are much rather scared to take on Dwight Howard.

With Howard both teams are real contenders and Orlando would only get late first round draft picks. The only way to get possible lottery picks is to involve a third team or find a lottery team silly enough to rent Howard (Rockets).

Wouldn't Orlando want lottery picks, cap space and youth? Then they can tank and double up on lottery picks.

I just think Nets and Heat fans are really scared of Dwight going to the Lakers. That pretty much sums everything up.


I gave my absolute final explanation to justinnum, but now, I'm done.


They're just really jealous, and I'll leave it at that.

:laugh2:

Firstly, the Lakers actually have to get Dwight. He's not a Laker and it is by no means a foregone conclusion he will be considering the Magic have no interest in Bynum and the Cavs are proving to be a stumbling block.

Secondly, Howard has to accept being 2nd or 3rd option on offense (behind Kobe and maybe Pau) and with his unbelievable ego, do you really think that's gonna be easy? That team has to gel together and actually prove they can play good basketball. It took the Heat a year, the Lakers don't have a year with the fast decline of Kobe, Pau, Nash and Metta. The Heat had no problems with ego's... They put that all aside and they still struggled to mesh initially. Imagine what it's gonna be like with Kobe and Dwight, the two biggest ego's in the league.

Thirdly, the Lakers have to get past the Thunder who I would still have ahead of the Lakers in terms of the Western conference even if they acquire Dwight. With Kobe fast on the decline, Nash having maybe one more year of top 10 PG play in him and Gasol in the twilight of his career, the Lakers window isn't a wide one. Getting Dwight isn't a huge improvement over Bynum (who's the second best center in the league), he provides a stronger defensive presence but less offense. The Lakers will still struggle with the speed and athleticism of both the Thunder and the Heat.

Don't start counting your chickens before they hatch is all I say..... Ain't no one jealous of the Lakers and their spoilt fans who think the NBA constantly owes them one of the best players in the league.

Firstly, the Lakers actually have to get Dwight. He's not a Laker and it is by no means a foregone conclusion he will be considering the Magic have no interest in Bynum and the Cavs are proving to be a stumbling block.

Secondly, Howard has to accept being 2nd or 3rd option on offense (behind Kobe and maybe Pau) and with his unbelievable ego, do you really think that's gonna be easy? That team has to gel together and actually prove they can play good basketball. It took the Heat a year, the Lakers don't have a year with the fast decline of Kobe, Pau, Nash and Metta. The Heat had no problems with ego's... They put that all aside and they still struggled to mesh initially. Imagine what it's gonna be like with Kobe and Dwight, the two biggest ego's in the league.

Thirdly, the Lakers have to get past the Thunder who I would still have ahead of the Lakers in terms of the Western conference even if they acquire Dwight. With Kobe fast on the decline, Nash having maybe one more year of top 10 PG play in him and Gasol in the twilight of his career, the Lakers window isn't a wide one. Getting Dwight isn't a huge improvement over Bynum (who's the second best center in the league), he provides a stronger defensive presence but less offense. The Lakers will still struggle with the speed and athleticism of both the Thunder and the Heat.

Don't start counting your chickens before they hatch is all I say..... Ain't no one jealous of the Lakers and their spoilt fans who think the NBA constantly owes them one of the best players in the league.

LOL kobe and pau fast declining? can you predict the future buddy... i would not be surprise if kobe and pau puts on better numbers than your boy melo and fragile knees amare this upcoming season. Twilight of pau's career? I guess your watching vlade divac replays instead of watching pau play.. Gasol will finish those last 2 years of his contract with decent to good stats especially now with nash on board.. plus with kobe, pau, nash and bench improvement lakers dont have to rely big time on dwight to score. That is the main reason they prefer dwight over drew.. Defense!

I guess you should 1st worry about your own team before you criticize other team.. worry about getting pass the heat and probably the nets this year..

Dwight has every right to test free agency.

At this point, I don't think he owes the Magic Front Office/Owner anything. They've failed to trade him, even though he grudgingly extended an extra year to improve his trade value, and gave them pretty clear indicators that he was not happy being in Orlando.

This news comes to no surprise, and all information not coming from his agent or Dwight himself is probably false leaked information to try to help negotiations for the Magic Front Office.

I wish the Lakers would just turn off the trade talks and let Dwight and Orlando stew in their own crap.

This is such a joke.

It also just occured to me that with Nash running the offense now - Bynum would be a better fit than Dwight

-Think Nash + Shaq what a disaster that was.

Plus Dwight is going to decline FAST like Shaq did because he relies on his physical advantages.

Bynum is a more skilled and intelligent player who would have a longer career like Duncan or Kareem.

Are we talking about the same guy who parks his BMW in two handicapped spots? Or the guy who delayed his surgery to watch a soccer match?

The ONLY thing Andrew has over Dwight is a more refined offensive game. Dwight Howard does EVERYTHING else better than Andrew Bynum.

And Andrew would not be a better fit with Nash...are you kidding me? Bynum is the tinman that labors down the court; Dwight is a well-oiled machine that was built for the fast break game. Why even bring up Shaq??? For one, he was a different center than what Dwight is now and for two...Shaq was at the tail-end of his career when he teamed up with Nash.

I'm sick of the drama just like anyone but let's be real here.

I don't think he's anything defensively but where do you see him slipping? He's still around #10 in guard efficiency, top five shooter, top assists. I mean health will be an issue but not on court play effectiveness. Lakers are deep homie, if Kobe returns to average, they'll be a tough out.

His defense went from bad to non-existent. He's going to make Steve Blake look like Tony Allen. He can still shoot but he can't score like he used to. Obviously he still has court vision but that is never going to go. He's still a good player but he's far from the same guy who won 2 MVP's.

His defense is horrid. Steve Blake will look like the glove compared to him, but the Lakers help D will make up for that. As for offensively? he's still top 10, there isn't much of a drop off in his offensive efficiency per. Infact what's funny here is that he was ranked like #22 in 2010/11 and he dropped off to #33 last season. He's not the same Nash, but he's still effective w/ the ball even though the stats show this has turned into a big man's game or athletic guard's game.

Justinnum,

Rudolph said that Dwight will sign long-term with the Lakers. Meaning he has given his word to Lakers brass that he will beyond 2013 in a Lakers uniform (not specified as extension or just becoming a free agent and Lakers owning his bird rights).



His agent is basically saying the latter, that he'll test free agency in 2013. He wants whatever team that gets Dwight to own his bird rights next summer so they can sign him to a more lucrative deal. More money for Dwight long-term means more money for his agent, so coming out and actually saying this is an incentive and motive for Dan Fegan.



I take the time out to explain these things to you because you're okay in my books. You're very wise Justinnum. Don't buy into the crap waveycrocket, Losoway and jmoney85 use to brainwash other posters.

Did at any point, I compare Kobe and Pau to Melo and Amar'e? No.. Stop bringing up an irrelevant, completely separate argument 'buddy'.

Pau posted career lows in TS%, the second worst eFG% of his career, his worst PER since his rookie season, his worst ORtg in 7 years and EASILY his worst WS/48 since he joined the Lakers (by a considerable margin). The guy is still a very good player, but he's not getting any younger or better, so don't try and kid yourself. Kobe's on the decline and that's clear for everyone to see. He has more mileage on him than 95% of the league and someone who has played over 50,000 minutes is gonna start to slow down at an alarming rate.

Lakers don't have to rely on Dwight to score? Oh yeah, I forgot.. You've got a 36 year old Antawn Jamison, a 38 year old Steve Nash and a Metta World Peace (whatever the **** that is). Do you really think Dwight's gonna be happy not being relied on for offense? Do you think he's gonna enjoy not being relied upon to score? The same guy who turned the Lakers down when Kobe phoned him and told him he was gonna be the 3rd option behind Kobe and Pau in February near the trade deadline? The same guy that has said on numerous occasions he demands to be the closer in the 4th quarter? The same guy who appears to have the biggest ego in the NBA? The same guy who constantly throws his teammates and coaches under the bus when he doesn't get what he wants? All this while playing for the franchise who's fans put their players under the most scrutiny in the entire league (second to only the Knicks)?

I can't believe I'm arguing with a Lakers and Yankees fan.... God, how low have I stooped.

Pau's numbers are because of Kobe chucking the ball 99.9% of the time this past season. Pau is still easily a top 15 player when he is trusted and a main piece of offensive gameplan. Also, his style of play gives him a lot of time to be an affective player, similar to Dirk's style of play (not saying Pau is as good as Dirk). Nash is the same way. He still has 2-3 years of great play, but after that he is done. Howard going to LA would be the same situation he is in Orlando. Nash and Kobe are probably done in 3 years. Pau is getting older. Nothing is left after. and just for reference Pau > Amare. Kobe > Melo.

Pretty much what I said above. He will still be a top PG for a couple more years, but instead of dropping off, I think he will retire a great player still.

if that's the case then does dwight howard want
1. MONEY
2. Championship
3. Both?

need to know his true intentions....

if you're Orlando, you don't need to know any of those things.

You know he doesn't want to be in Orlando, (at this point he REALLY doesn't want to be in Orlando, but that is mostly Orlando's fault for pressuring him to opt in and then jerking him around in the media).

You also know that he wants to go to LA and also possibly still wants Brooklyn (but seems to have fallen in love with LA now, and forgotten about Brooklyn).

So, you can either keep him and get 10,000 bee stings from the media between now and next summer, in order to keep him there when everybody knows for certain he will bail in free agency next summer. Next summer, you can hope to get some value back in a sign and trade, or if you are crazy, you can hope to convince him to extend in Orlando.

Or you can trade him to Houston or Dallas as a rental, getting back some picks and players and washing your hands of it. You do risk that those teams would then make a better trade to LA, though, for Bynum or whatever, making you look bad, either immediately or in a sign and trade next summer.

Or you can trade him where he wants to go, and take the best deal you can get, either rolling the dice with Bynum's Bird rights, and hopefully convince him to stay, take say, Bynum + Ebanks + 2 first round picks, or get some other team involved and take back 3 1st round picks plus a couple young untested players and call it a day.

This isn't rocket science. Orlando basically has two options: trade Howard, or squeeze on to him and hold him through next year.

OMFG can something be done about this already, this situation has become so ********.

Sssmush
07-20-2012, 05:48 PM
From the Orlando FO's perspective, dealing him to LA in a 3 team deal is the least risky option.

First of all, you're trading him directly where he wants to go, so he's not going to simply get re-packaged and traded in a better deal than what you got, making it look like you got ripped off.

Second, you don't risk getting Bynum and having him possibly walk in free agency, or having to do some watered down sign and trade with him in the summer, also making it look like you got ripped off.

If you get several picks and prospects over several years, you can point to all that and say you got decent value back for Howard, and that's the best deal you could've got.

I still say that this is all moot currently, because DeVos is not approving any trades involving Dwight.

Like, here was the meeting 3 weeks ago:

Hennigan: "Mr DeVos, hello, it's me, the general manager of your team sir."

DeVos: "hellloooooo."

Hennigan:"Sir, can you see me?"

DeVos: "yes... can... see you."

Hennigan:"Sir, we need to trade Dwight Howard. We have several good offers, and would like to trade him. Can we get your approval."

DeVos: "You must... re-sign Dwight to a new contract. Sign him... or you're fired."

Hennigan:"But sir...."

DeVos: "Do not fail me! Sign him... or you're fired. Now leave."

Hennigan:"But sir, you don't understand, he'll never..."

DeVos: "Leave now. Don't ever say never son. Close the deal."

Hennigan:"But sir, you don't..."

Nurse: "I think he's asleep now."

So, tell me. How many Dwight Howard deals do you think Hennigan can make between now and the next time he meets with DeVos?

LOL... I guess you should watch more laker games bud and dont rely on stats too much coz players could bounce back in a year... Gasol will be fine or even better this coming season.. Nash will play a big part to it.. Every laker fan knows pau's bad season was not due to decline but rather on proper utilization.. Even if pau's athletecism would decline he will still be a good player it all depends on mike brown how he used him this season...

As for Dwight people change and adjust, unless you know him personally and can predict the future i will praised you... having nash and kobe around him could do wonders and after 2 years if indeed he lands in LA this team would be his own...

DeVos is being a ***** about it, what a surprise.

Basically, this is also what Rudolph is saying, and Pingalore was basically putting his reputation on the line saying that the deal will be done by the end of the week. My thinking is that everything has been agreed upon, all the players and their agents have been told to not tell too much, although Bynum and Howard's dumb agents came out and said stupid stuff the last few days.

It's all in Orlando's court, whether they want to pull the trigger or not. Devos has gone senile and won't let the rest of the world move on with their lives.

I'm thinking Hennigan is the victim and Devos is the guy ****ing this up. I just might change my sig pic to old man Devos, saying I have testicles, they're just really saggy.

LOL... I guess you should watch more laker games bud and dont rely on stats too much coz players could bounce back in a year... Gasol will be fine or even better this coming season.. Nash will play a big part to it.. Every laker fan knows pau's bad season was not due to decline but rather on proper utilization.. Even if pau's athletecism would decline he will still be a good player it all depends on mike brown how he used him this season...

hahaha! yeah we got a 36 year old jamison who posted identical numbers to your fragile knees stoudamire last year...and guess what bud? he will be only playing off the bench for us... Ohh and 38 year old nash who average a double2 in points and assist last year on a lottery team which has far lesser option than the team he is playing last year.. a guy who is still a top 10 point guard in this league.. ALso a trimmed down metta world peace.. guess what the offseason aint over and were pretty sure kupchak will add more firepower.. oh I guess i forgot kobe and pau... yeah scoring would be a bigtime need for us..lol..

What makes you think Mike Brown has suddenly learnt how to utilise Gasol? Do you not think adding Howard to the equation makes it even harder to figure a way of using Pau?

I'm just going on the way Dwight's acted so far.. He hasn't shown any level of maturity and willingness to accept a deferred position. I personally don't think it's worth the Lakers gambling on him to be honest.

But you seem to be a typical Lakers fan... Always confident you can add more for nothing. Good luck with Dwight if you get him, I don't think it's gonna benefit your team as much as you think, but that doesn't bother me. Makes me very happy in fact :D

Bynum:Howard to Rockets:Lakers makes the most sense.

Yes, Orlando is going to do what's best for the franchise, and that would be buying him out because the situation is "annoying".


"Annoying" < Picks, young players, expiring contracts, salary shedding

They're going to suck anyway and Dwight have them under his control even though he didn't get what he want in to be traded to the nets, And they are turning down offers left and right. The diva is already saying he is willing to sit out the whole season just to leave and Orl get nothing in return. They should trade him for Bynum and get it over with.

Trade his *** to Brooklyn, we can have 6 power teams.
Celtics heat Brooklyn
Lakers thunder maybe spurs or hopefully knicks show life and gel.
