The Dwight Howard Drama Unfolds

Recommended Posts

I get it completely. Okay we were never going to get better, but I didn't expect we'd get that much worse. How many times do you get a trade chip like Dwight Howard, how many times. + There may have been no deal at present that was much better, but he wasn't going anywhere either.

 

I understand the frustration. I wish we could get more for Dwight, but when his trade list consists of 3 teams who don't have what we are looking for in a deal at all, things get ugly. I think we did pretty well considering the circumstances. Rob will have to make his mark with his draft picks going forward, because that is obviously what he is planning to do.

Seriously even Dallas could offer more! They have 3 good rooks, Beaubois, Jones, Wright... If you want to tank do it right!

How is that better than what we got at all? You're being silly now.

Does nobody know(besides me) that were gonna cut Turk and Harrington after this season?

 

How? Hedo will count against the cap and yeah Harringtons contract has an option! But is that way we are looking for?

Okay that's good and all but if you could flip Iggy, Gasol or Bynum at the deadline for even more assets if you need to.

 

Hell Iggy netted more in a trade than Howard it looks like.

 

You are just being ignorant now.

 

So, we should trade Dwight for guys that we don't want and just want to turn around and trade later? I don't think I'm the one being ignorant here...

Tell me what is better with this deal? Afflalo? Nah! Harrington? Nah! Harkless? Nah! Draft pick? Nah! Losing Howard to the might Lakers? Hell yeah!!! <_<

Great but if your gonna rebuild. you should at least get back some quality picks.

 

All those picks coming back are mediocre 20-30 range.

 

HOU guaranteed lotto Raptors pick trumps all of those IMO.

 

I hope Hennigan backs out of trade talks at the last minute.

 

Picks come with sucking. Id like you to name a team that has landed quality picks after trading a superstar!!

You are absolutely right! It's way more intelligent to trade Dwight for Afflalo!!! Maybe Afflalo's value will skyrocketing... <_<

Explain to me how your absurd Dallas offer is better?

 

Beabouis has shown nothing but the ability to be a sporadic scorer, and has yet to make any major strides.

Jones has averaged 7 mpg in his career to the point.

Wright has been the league for 4 seasons while flashing little to no ability.

 

We got Arron Afflalo, a great shooter/defender at the 2 guard position. Moe Harkless, a rookie with a ton of athleticism and upside a 21 year old big man with some upside and we get more picks than we would in a straight up deal with Dallas.

 

I'm sorry, but the fact that I'm even debating this deal and your proposed Dallas trade is just mind boggling stupid.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, THE GOAL WASN'T TO GET BETTER. THERE WAS NO DEAL WE WOULD'VE MADE TO GET BETTER.

 

God, I can see where Jareth comes from now. Some people just don't get it.

 

When the nuggets traded melo they actually got some decent players in return and also multiple draft picks, and didn't fall off the map completely. They competed with the lakers till game 7 this past season in the playoffs and have some nice young talent. You would think we could get a similar kind of deal with a BETTER player then melo.....if we just had a bit more patience. There are teams out there that have plenty of talent. So, I disagree with this....you shouldn't fall completely off the map like we have with this trade when you are trading a top 5 player, you really shouldn't.

The Magic don't want to be like the Nuggets. They are a team stuck in neutral. Rob was hired to rebuild the team through the draft, not trade for a bunch of players to keep us decent.

My point is both offer are bad! If you want to tank, why not get the worst player you can get with one year remaining on their contract?

 

But if you want Dwight going to LA why not trade directly for Bynum? Is Zeller better than Bynum? Is Afflalo better than Richardson? This all will turn into a big mess for the next 5+ years! I still cannot accept the fact that we will trade Howard for Afflalo!!
