If the Lakers are involved, I don't see a reason why Dwight would end up in Houston. No point in them getting picks or Scola/KMart for Bynum.

The only way Bynum is traded is if LA gets Dwight Howard and a long term contract.

I say just trade them anyways, Dwight hasn't promised to sign an extension if traded to the Lakers either. However, both will get the max money possible by resigning these teams so chances are they'll sign eventually. I think both are too greedy to test FA and sacrifice a couple of millions by signing to another team unless those teams are the other big market teams like NY or Miami, which is not likely anyways.

The Magic, Rockets, Lakers, sounds possible.
Lakers get Howard, Rockets get Bynum, and Magic dump salary and get lottery picks.

Houston doesn't need assurance from Bynum that he will resign before they trade for him.

It's either time to rebuild if you can't have a good enough team to win a championship. Having the 9 or 10th seed each year and missing the playoffs is the absolute worst position to be in, cuz you end up with like 13th pick every draft and you stay bad.

all good points. so the Rockets deal them both away with no assurances of getting Dwight. so it's basically high stakes poker. so they really couldn't keep either one of the two PG's? I know they command a high price after last season's success but I would rather deal KMart or Scola before Lowry

Well it seems like the pick they'll send to Magic is part of the Lowry trade/deal and letting Dragic go is partly so they could absorb some of Magics big contract like JRich and in turn they might get Bynum or Howard.

Simpyl fact is, Lowry or Dragic aren't going to be filling up seats and those are the players that are more sought after too. I think they've been trying to deal KMart for 2 years now.

Yep thats true. Except they haven't really been shopping around Kmart until this year, he was doing pretty decent. But i'm thinking the rockets will have scott machado start at point because i'm pretty sure knicks will match Lin's offer. Machado will surprise people

Keep in mind that KMarts been injury prone though.

Bynum is fishing in Alaska. He doesn't think he is going to be traded.
LA is also looking to pick up another old guy. Antawn Jamison.

WTF, dude is suppose to get a knee surgery. How about doing that first before even considering vacation?

Also, Jamison was surprisingly good/decent last year. Had him for my fantasy league and he was actually doing work. He'll benefit from Nash for sure and spread the floor further. No opposition on my end as long he goes for dirt cheap.
post #8606 of 17692
+1 to Jamison being an unexpected fantasy stud-51 game seasons suit him well. how do you guys think players will adjust to the upcoming 82 game schedule. last season was pushed into mid/late june and now you have the olympics. Does this in any way affect Durant, Lebron, Westbrooks fantasy draft position?
post #8607 of 17692

Nah, not those young guys. They'll still be top 10 and KD & Lebron will still be top 2.

Nets gave up on Howard, signed Lopez for 4-yrs $60m instead anc can't be traded until Jan. 15. Nets' new contracts: $98M (DWill), $40M (Wallace), $89M (Joe Johnson's contract), $60M (Lopez). Total: $287 million. lol8[1].gif

Now Lakers, make it happen and get rid of Bynum once and for all.

Also, Kaman to Mavs.
post #8609 of 17692
I say Lakers pickup Howard and win the 12-13 season, Nash finally receiving his ring

Miami will not repeat unless Allen really becomes a factor and/or magically, Howard goes to Miami (but not possible right with all the cap space).
post #8610 of 17692
Damn, is Lopez worth max money?
