2012 NBA Offseason Thread

Pretty risky but the Lakers are going to be pretty bad in 3 years anyway. Might as well take a shot with Howard, Kobe and Gasol this year. If they did win the title Howard would probably sign a long term deal.

Danny Ferry has been on the job for a week and he should already be given Executive of the Year for dumping Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams. Those were just horrible contracts.

Seriously cannot believe that the Nets would make this deal, end any chance of getting Howard, and taking on such a bad contract.

Nets are desperate. They have a new arena and NEED to have something attractive for Deron to play along with. They decided they don't wanna have an empty stadium and want to risk paying Joe $25 million in the final year of his contract when he is 34 YEARS OLD

Ferry looks like a genius. I think there are a lot of free agent shooting guard that the Nets could have signed for much cheaper.
Bucher saying Dwight likely traded and hits free agent market in 2013 and could very well end up in Brooklyn when all said and done. Said his 2 teams on list are Dallas and Los Angeles Lakers, since Brooklyn is likely out of the mix.

Do Mavs have any assets to make this trade happen - I guess they have the exception from Odom trade - but other than that - what do they have?

It seems like the Lakers are the best bet if they decide to move Bynum. Orlando would be very fortunate if that happened. They wont get anything close to that.

I wouldn't count the Rockets out because they have some great young assets. Obviously not a center like Bynum, or a player on his level, but they have a ton of good players at each position.

I agree. But, I believe Orlando will try to get rid of couple of their bad contracts as well - like Turkoglu and JRich - so it will be interesting what Lakers can offer.
In an interview one of the Maloofs said that the Kings have never had an offseason program untill now...nice work...morons

You want Josh Howard back as a mav? Lol
There is still a chance that Orlando Magic star Dwight Howard could become a member of the Brooklyn Nets, according to league sources.

The Nets and the Orlando Magic are discussing a trade that would send Howard to the Nets for Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and the Nets' first-round picks in 2013, 2015 and 2017, sources said. Lopez and Humphries, who are both free agents, would go to Orlando in sign-and-trade deals. The move would be the Nets' second blockbuster trade this week and would give them a big three of Howard, Deron Williams and Joe Johnson that could rival the NBA champion Miami Heat's heralded trio of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh.

A trio of Williams, Howard and Johnson would be a boon for the Nets as they open their first season in Brooklyn this fall.

Howard has been a douche but I live in BK near the stadium so Nets are growing on me.
That's a solid team, but right now, Deron, Joe, Crash, Humphries, and Brooke Lopez with Marshon off the bench is pretty damn good already.
