Sources: Charlotte is sending Miles Plumlee, Marco Belenelli and 41st pick to Atlanta for Dwight Howard and 31st pick.

Another year, another team for Dwight.

Clifford's had success coaching Howard in two past stops and knows how to use him. Hawks moved to CHA for salary dump after Nets talks.

Maybe it works out

last year was Durant signing with the Warriors and RWB resigning. I don't think there was much news outside of that. I think right now since players have so much power, they're able to create all this frenzy. Management just doesn't want to end up with nothing if a player leaves.

Charlotte upgrading their pick from 41 to 31 on the back of Dwight had to be the cherry on top of his precipitous decline. It's too bad, because he could still be a defensive force in the middle on a contender, a la Bogut.

In his prime just counting bigs he was behind at least Duncan, Garnett, and nowitski, and that's not counting wings like LeBron, tmac, Kobe, etc.

Love the trade for the Hornets. They finally found that C they are looking for while getting rid of Plumlee's contract and moving 10 spots up in the draft.

06-21-2017, 05:01 AM
I think Dwight might have found a home. Everytime I watch Hornets games all they do is run p&r with Kemba. They also have Batum so he's with some good players who aren't selfish (Kobe, Harden).

I don't think that ball movement offense suites his game. He can't play in the high post he cant really dribble. That is for a skilled big man like Pau. He needs to be a screen setter, roll to the basketball, alley oops putbacks with the occasional touch in the low post and being a monster on defense.

Monta is beast
06-21-2017, 05:02 AM
Basically he can't play with selfish players or in a ball movement offense. I still think he's got gas in the tank tho

Dwights issue is mental. It's not physical, or teammates, or the system. He quit on the Magic 3 times before he quit on the Lakers, before he quit on Houston, he never even showed up in ATL his home town ... and now somehow he's going to save Charlotte?

I don't know, 95?

Dwight was an extremely unskilled big man with outstanding athleticism, but he hardly ever demanded a double team, had poor court awareness and passing skills, was largely useless outside of the paint, and was extremely overrated as a defender. Definitely not worthy of a 3 or 4 time dpoy.

I'll tack back the whole probably not a top 10 player, he was barely top 15.

I hope not my Bucks. We had interests in trading for him when he was with the Rockets. But he had a player option and opted out. We didn't plan on offering up a haul for a possible rental.

06-21-2017, 08:48 AM
Although Dwight can be a cancer, this is still a huge win for the Hornets. They get one of the best defensive and rebounding centers in the league while dumping Plumlee and somehow moving up in the draft. Barring injuries, that's a solid playoff squad in the East next year.

Meanwhile, wtf is Atlanta doing? They got pennies on the dollar for Dwight and didn't even manage to get a decent pick out of it. If Millsap re-signs with them, it's for the money, because I can't envision that Hawks team being good for the foreseeable future.

ATL is clearly going to let Milsap go (they should try and work a sign-and-trade).

Good pick-up for Charlotte... it is a gamble at this point, but maybe MJ can alpha dog this guy into accepting his role.

I don't think it will turn out well, but it can't be any worse for Charlotte than it would have been keeping what they got, and it might be a whole lot better.


As much as I don't like Dwight, I do want to see him grow up, reach his full potential, even if it isn't what it was, and make something of his talent. It is a waste to see talent like that get lost on ego.


Seriously though... they might as well have asked for a used DVD player and a iPod nano from a pawn shop if that's all they were getting.

For ****ing peanuts though. That's a good trade for Charlotte. It was plumlee Marco and the 41st for Dwight and the 31st.Miles is actually a better player and teammate than Dwight so I don't see the peanuts comparison unless you meant to type Atlanta instead of Charlotte. I thought the Bucks was stupid to trade him for 2 bum logs which i had said earlier their GM is clueless.

You must of miss that Boogie blocked by Miles from behind which was almost as impressive as the one Bron did on Iggy in the finals https://youtu.be/LhT1HJmRdjg

He takes alot, doesn't seem to hit them as much as you would like but the spacing effect is still very real for him, guys dont really disrespect him. Hes alot better at slashing to the rim than Love on any close out thats for sure. Love takes a **** load more shots that nba.com classifies as open/wide open, Im thinking the real benefit comes on the other end but its not a bad exchange offensively.

Dwight would be on a legit contender for the first time in quite some time, I think he would embrace what Bron could do for his career if he played this right.

Prolly not the best trade tho

People really think Dwight isn't a HOF and then claim someone is clueless if they said he was a top 5 player at one point? Wow lmao and of course it's "Warriors fans" so it's not that surprising I guess.

He's made multiple all NBA teams, DPOY, almost won an MVP, and led his team to the finals getting past LeBron in the ECF.
Your bar for HOF is pretty low my man.

Damn I would have loved going all in on acquiring Dwight for the likes of Crawford and Wes, making DJ expendable and boom, we got a nice starting 5 finally.
:laugh:

This guy legitimately wants Dwight. Just hilarious. I would make a joke about the Clippers here, but this is more than that - Chronz actually considers Dwight to be a quality player. Just awesome.

I think Dwight might have found a home. Everytime I watch Hornets games all they do is run p&r with Kemba. They also have Batum so he's with some good players who aren't selfish (Kobe, Harden).

I don't think that ball movement offense suites his game. He can't play in the high post he cant really dribble. That is for a skilled big man like Pau. He needs to be a screen setter, roll to the basketball, alley oops putbacks with the occasional touch in the low post and being a monster on defense.
What a load of tripe. The rockets begged him to play as a screen/ roller to catch the ally oops off Harden but his ego wanted to be a primary post up player. Stop blaming Harden. Hell in Los Angeles Nash told him the same.

Thats cuz you play the way your hero KD does, by cheating the system. Try pulling that **** with my sliders/rosters and you'll set the bar for futility. Especially with a bum like Monta

Bruh it's a video game doe

Bro I get to compare the warriors to the rockets. There is not a single player in the NBA that would enjoy playing with Harden. He is the anti Steph Curry he makes his teammates worse. I really feel bad for Trevor ariza dude is just stuck there with that bs

Let me chill in this corner right quick watch dude dribble the ball and take a contensted 3, go to the hoop and flail like a fish out of water or maybe with the kick out but you know those turnovers are gonna add up and the defense blasphemous

Those 2 on the same team would probably be pretty good. Oh wait.......

Nah your right, it's Harden's fault Ariza misses open three's. What a dumb example.

another thread with clueless dubs fans posting like they know basketball...

To be fair, it's only two of them in this thread that are being clueless. But those two guys are bandwagoners so they don't count as real fans.


Scratch that, Monta just went off the rails for a bit.

Travis Schlenk's first goal on being hired away from the Warriors was to get rid of Howard, HE CALLED ALL OF THE TEAMS, and Charlotte was the best offer they could get.

A 10 spot drop in the draft to get rid of him is astounding. Belinelli is essentially gone, and Plumlee (d-league, trade, trade, stupid contract, trade, trade) ... and most of what Plumlee brings is one of the worst contracts in the NBA.

It's very clear that the main priority was to get rid of Howard ... it's not money or talent or draft picks. It was get rid of Howard.

I won't diss on Dwight other than the fact that he's soft. He's had a hell of a career and people forget about the back surgery because it happened when all that other stuff was going on. I still think he's a top 10 center

Fair enough.

As far as Howard goes, as soon as he realizes he's not Orlando Dwight anymore, I think he'll be a better fit on teams. Problem is, if people are still willing to give out insane money for him, he thinks it's because people still view him as Orlando Dwight.

His next contract (assuming he doesn't retire) will be more down to earth and reflective of his skill sets.

That has a legit 8-9 man rotation and they have the MLE to sign a good player too.

C- Dwight, Zeller
PF- Marvin, Kaminsky
SF- MKG, Lamb
SG- Batum, Monk
PG- Walker, Sessions

I think they'll be top 4 in the East next year.

Would Dwight+Milsap have been a decent return for Love+Tristan? I did it in 2K and won the chip after going down 3-0 to the Dubs

You can easily beat the Dubs with a dominant big man.

There is no "easily" involved in beating the Dubs. But you're just a clown nowadays so it's not a big surprise to see you post some crap like this.

An elite ATG one yes, but Shaq was the last of those kings. Guys like AD and Giannis, if they maximixed their potential, could maybe become that dominant but only time will tell.

KAT will save us.

21.75 ppg vs Warriors this past season and a 1-3 record, the 1 win by 1 point during their swoon after KD got injured.

I'm not sure KAT alone, or even him on a fairly talented team is enough.

But yeah, he's great.

AD, if he had a reasonable group around him could really push the Warriors.
