    How much control does the draft lottery have over the Nets and the D12/D8?

    how much control do you guys think the outcome of the lottery will have on the nets, williams, howard, and the nba as a whole?

    from my perspective, the magic are ready to start from scratch, they fired everyone, and you arent going to build a contender in time for the trade deadline(where they will surely say to howard "extend with us or be traded away")

    no matter who you bring in, walsh, sloan, jackson, it doesnt matter, you arent going to be able to build a contender with that team, because of obvious reasons: lack of cap space, bad contracts, and lack of young talent to acquire somebody that will entice howard to stay

    so lets assume that the magic are smart enough to realize this, and decide to trade howard now.

    the best package they could possibly get would be one with bynum in it, and maybe a jordan hill and future picks

    the 2nd best package they could get would be from the nets which would include he 2012 pick, brooks, lopez, and proably future picks

    but what a few people dont realise is that the nets are in big trouble if they dont land that top 3 pick and are allowed to keep it. if they fall out of the top 3, the pick goes to portland

    if the pick goes to portland, then they have no assets to acquire howard, if they dont acquire howard, williams doesnt stay, if williams doesnt stay, you have no young talent to use for that season outside of brooks and lopez and you will be a lottery team again, dont be a lottery team, switch to DirecTV

    do you guys agree with this thought process?

    Nothing will happen until draft night. That's my belief I feel everyone is waiting to see who gets what pick and then who the potential top 5 might be.

    Didn't realize that about the Nets pick. That will make it very interesting.

    If they Nets get a top 3 pick Dwight will be a Net,it's as simple as that.

    everything

    if the nets get a top 3 pick they can potentially have dwill and dwight going into brooklyn, if they dont, they have no superstar and will have to rely on lopez hump brooks and whatever else they can scrap up in free agency

    Actually, it's a bit more complicated than that.

    #1 would most likely be Carter. You don't need Dwight if you have Carter. Younger, healthier, and dirt cheap to boot.

    So, if it's #1, do the Nets even bother trading for Dwight? Then what does DWill do?

    If it's #2/3, they have picks to trade, but they're still killing the roster since other teams will likely offer similar or larger offers for Dwight. Even if the Nets can pull off the trade, how much will they need to give up and do they decide to pass entirely?

    So yah, the lottery has a pretty big impact. So does the assets available on other teams.

    Finally, DWill has said he wants to settle his FA by the time the Olympics starts in case he gets injured. July 1 is the start of FA. July 5 is the start of scrimmaging. And the Olympics don't start long after that.

    Expect the news to be fast and furious this FA season.

    The Nets' pick would go a long way if they indeed land a top 3 pick in the lottery... DWill staying vs leaving will be even more interesting though, it may decide Dwight's fate as well.

    Net fans find it hard to see any scenario that does not end up with Dwight going to the Nets. They think Brook Lopez is a better choice than Andrew Bynum in a trade with the Magic. The fact is the Nets are unlikely to get a top three pick in the lottery. That pick will end up going to the Trailblazers.

    It has been reported multiple times recently that although the results of next week's lottery are important to the organization, it doesn't actually dictate whether or not Deron remains with the Nets or not. As long as their front office adds players that will help the team win before free agency begins, he'll more than likely stay in Brooklyn. Also, even if the Nets miss out on D12, it does not necessarily mean Deron is gone either.

    Very interesting.

    It is nice to know there is someone on PSD that can tell the future.

    If Nets lose Williams and Wallace, they will go down as the worst FA in years.

    They would have squandered like 6 1st round picks not including D Favors?
