Instead of looking to move anywhere Dwight Howard just wants certain people to come to HIS team.
Hmmm…All I’ve been seeing and hearing is
Dwight Howard wants to play with (blank).
Dwight Howard scouting out (blank).
So on and so forth. Does that mean he thinks his team can get someone without him leaving?
So who does Dwight Howard want to play with? Here’s the list:
1. Monta Ellis
The Warriors will give up Monta Ellis for DH but they won’t let him go just because DH wants to play with him. And the Warriors don’t really want anyone from the Magic.
2. Steve Nash
DH wants his team to GET ON getting Steve Nash. If they do then DH will probably resign during the summer and become a free agent in 2013 when most of the other guys he wants to play with will become free as well. The only thing is, Steve Nash isn’t going anywhere. The Suns aren’t going to let him go unless he ASKS to be traded and Nash has already made it clear that he wants to play out his career as a Sun. Nash said he would understand if the Suns would want to move him around but from what I understand there’s a mutual agreement that they’re going to hang tight with each other. I guess Steve Nash will just go his career without a ring. Oh well. No skin off my back.
3. Chris Paul
Not going to happen this season. That’s for sure. The Clippers aren’t going to let go of CP3 or Griffin as of now. Plus they’d be paying up the wazoo if they even entertained the idea of getting DH. Next.
4. Andre Iguodala
Iguodala wants DH to come to the Magic, not the other way around. He’s just got to convince him to come play for the Sixers. That seems unlikely though. Next.
5. Josh Smith
They grew up together. What can you say? How long? Since pre-school, apparently they liked the same girl. Hahaha. Same AAU team as teenagers and now battling it out on the court. Cute huh? But the Celtics have been eyeing Josh Smith HARD. Even enough to give up Kevin Garnett. Who knows if that is going to happen but that’s what it’s looking like now. If the Magic really want to keep Howard maybe they can make this happen? Would the Hawks want any of the Magic Forwards? Uh….Ryan Anderson? Hedo Turkoglu? I don’t know if the Hawks would consider that though…
6. Deron Williams
The Nets are trying to trade Brook Lopez for DH so Williams will sign with them again but like all these trades, they are all so lopsided. What is Orlando going to do with JUST Brook Lopez. It seems like you’d need both of them to play. Like the whole Amare+Nash combo. Man, that was great. Those poor guys are just not the same now…nor will they ever be again! Oh Well…
And then there’s the rumor that both Williams and DH might be on the Mavs next season but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves JUST yet.
But in reality are the Magic going to get a fair trade if Howard decides to leave? Probably not. No team or player wants to leave their team without getting another star to replace them. That’s just how it is. And I don’t know how much teams are willing to give up for JUST DH.
And Williams and DH would be paid a LOT less if they were to both go to the Mavs as free agents this summer. Like I said yesterday it’s either the game or the money. If you’re in a place where you get both, you’re one lucky son of a gun. I’ll give you that much.
7. Anthony Morrow
Either the Magic are being VERY secretive about their offers to other teams or they’re stupid and haven’t made any. If DH wants new team players, you get him new team players or he’s going to be gone like Nelson’s dad in search of a pack of cigarettes.
Do you know who IS interested in Morrow? The Timberwolves. But the Nets said they’re not going to move him. The Loserwolves do need a better 3 point shooter but I guess they’re going to have to look elsewhere, just like the Magic. NEXT.
8. Stephen Jackson
In a perfect world Jackson would be playing for…no it’s not the Magic but the Nets. He wants to team up with Williams and Howard to win a championship title! Too bad neither the Nets nor the Magic want him. He’d be making $10 mil next year and that is NOT something they are in search of. Both Williams and Howard would love to play with Jackson but even though they say “Yes, Yes!” their teams say “No, No!”.
Who in the world could the Magic get to make DH happy?
I have no clue.
