If we would try and sign him to a Max or a little less then Max deal. Could the Nets match it right now?


Then why aren't we trying this? Portland is doing it to the Pacers and PHX is trying to screw NO. Why can't we do this?

Maybe we will. Offseason isnt over yet. Maybe we have other plans like sucking so that we can get another top 3 pick and then start being aggressive in free agency.

We could still have a top 3 pick with Lopez because we are still a very young team. But atleast with Brook you have a legit low post scorer to go with Bismack's Defense.

I like Brook Lopez. He's a legit 7 footer for all those people whos complaining about wanting a traditional big man. What's up with people not liking Lopez, but is all over wanting to sign a guy like Hawes?

Lopez could be a added piece with our young guys right now to build for the future.
We could still more than likely be drafting in the top four next year with Lopez on this team. Just look at the Nets last year having Lopez and DWill and still end up with the 6th pick this year (Portland's).

Sure we may not get a chance to take a Noel or Zeller, but they're still guys like McAdoo and Shabazz for us to look at. Lopez will be better than Noel or Zeller next year anyway.

If we do think that we may end up with 2 first round picks next year, I still wouldnt mind offering the lower pick to see if the Nets would make a trade sending us Lopez.

What about facilitating a Dwight/ Nets trade? Something where the bobcats end up with Lopez and take on Hedo's contract (he only has 2 years left)

You wouldn't get Lopez though, Lopez and Brooks would be the main pieces Orlando would want in the trade. All the facilitating team would get is a pick or two, which really wont help when their at the end of the first round....

That may have been true last year or earlier this offseason, but right now neither the Nets nor the Magic have any sort of leverage. Outside of the Lakers offering Bynum (which the Magic would accept in a heartbeat), Orlando doesnt have any good offers on the table, and the Nets have even less leverage since they added all those salaries.

So explain to me why the Magic would give one of the only two worthwhile assets in the trade to the Bobcats....they would just say no deal and send him to L.A. straight up for Bynum....

I just said that if the Lakers offer Bynum, Howard is gonna be in LA. That would be by far their best offer, but the Lakers haven't made it yet.

And the Magic would do it because they want to shed salaries, gut the team, and rebuild. Lopez and Marshon arent going to just come in and replace Dwight, might as well take the opportunity to shed some of their terrible contracts. Did you know Orlando is paying Gilbert Arenas $43 million over the next 2 years?

They have offered Bynum actually, Lakers want a straight D12 for Bynum swap because they know ORL had ZERO leverage in the situation. Magic are just trying to milk more out of them. So in your scenario they would just turn around and say no thanks, call up Mitch and say "D12 for Bynum done!"

I'm confused, if the Lakers have already offered Bynum then why hasnt Orlando pulled the trigger yet? That is a far, far better offer than the sh!t sandwich the Nets have been pushing

Because Orlando is trying to get the Lakers to take back bad contracts, and Mitch Kupchak is resisting....
