Bobcats in Dwight Howard's Trade Talk.

331 posts in this topic

Im hoping a deal gets done with us being in the mix!!!

BUT, I am hoping it's a trade through players only and not us giving up future draft picks. And I'm sure Cho is smart enough to not give up picks. Maybe parting ways with Thomas and Hendo.

I would really like for us to add Humphries, though I wouldnt care if it was Brooks. But Humphries just makes more sense for us. He's a big body that we lack. Humphries and Bismack would be a really nice front court. Also giving us the opportunity to take Shabazz next year.

Imagine:

PG: Kemba

SG: Shabazz / Gordon

SF: MKG / Taylor

PF: Humphries

C: Bismack / Mullens

I smell a playoffs push in 2013-2014 .

When Cho was talking about rebuilding. He didn't mean hitting the lottery drafts every year. He meant two or three drafts only (which we had 2011/2012; and next year 2013) and using trades like this to set us up into the future of brightness.

How is Brooklyn doing anything wrong here? They traded for Derron, traded (and significantly overpaid) for Wallace, traded for Joe Johnson's contract (bigger than the player), and now they are trying to trade for Dwight. If anything they built their team more like the Celtics than the Heat

Obviously Dwight is the most significant piece and they certainly aren't trading fair value, but the Magic is about to get a hell of a lot more for Dwight than the Cavs got for Lebron.

Plus, that 2017 Nets 1st rounder could end up being a very nice pick- they are old

This honestly has nothing to do with the Lakers, it has to do with ridiculously one-sided trades, and owners who bitched about super teams facilitating trades to create a new one. If Brooklyn gets D12 then so be it, but for Orlando to be taking it from behind like they would in this trade is extremely shady....

Oh, and if the Nets pull this off, their luxury tax bill is going to be astronomical once the 3x tax kicks in. For as much as they will complain, small market teams are gonna be making straight cash off this deal

The difference is that LeBron was a FA, Dwight is under contract. Hell the deal the Lakers got for an old worn out Shaq from the Heat was miles better then this garbage. Just go to any Magic forum to see what they think of this "deal". Oh and if it goes through, the Bobcats can kiss the #1 pick GOODBYE....

The Magic are perfectly free to say no and let Dwight walk. Though that would cost them millions of dollars, picks, and a couple decent young players

So are you saying that Brook Lopez on a max deal is the best deal the Magic could get?? For God sakes they're not even dumping Hedo....
