NBA NIGHTLY RUNDOWN: Mavs want Howard, and more NBA player movement

Posted by shawn cassidy on July 3, 2012 at 2:20 AM

Dwight Howard News/Rumors

Ric Bucher: Source: With Nets out of equation, Mavs go to top of Dwight Howard's wish list. No other teams - Lakers included - on it. For now. Twitter

Ric Bucher: That didn't take long: now being told not to count out DH still making his way to the Nets. So list now is: 1.(Nets) Mavs. Twitter

Lang Greene: According to sources, Josh Smith has turned into lead recruiter trying to convince Dwight Howard to consider playing in Atlanta long term. Twitter

The Warriors, willing to take the risk of trading for Dwight Howard for 2011-12 even without an assurance of having him for more than one season, are not expected to resume pursuit after the superstar center told the Magic he wants to be dealt, Golden State owner Joe Lacob said Monday. “I doubt it,” Lacob told NBA.com at the gathering to introduce rookies Harrison Barnes, Festus Ezeli and Draymond Green. “I never say never. But we have somebody called Andrew Bogut. He is, in our opinion, one of the three best centers in the whole NBA, and in most people’s opinion. And he wants to be here and is a great fit. We think we have a really nice nucleus now going forward.” NBA.com

Pacers News/Rumors

Marc Stein: Pacers known to be seeking C to replace Roy Hibbert if they elect not to match Blazer offer sheet. Kaman known to want to join playoff team Twitter

Mike Wells: Kaman is clearly the Pacers' favorite to replace Hibbert if they don't match Portland. Indy tried to get Kaman at the deadline last season. Twitter

Mike Wells: The Pacers didn't get Kaman at the deadline because Larry Bird wasn't giving up a 1st rd pick to New Orleans for a 2-month rental on Kaman. Twitter

NBA News/Rumors

John Mitchell: Source: Sixers remain interested in Jamal Crawford. Twitter

Forward Rashard Lewis, a 6-foot-10 3-point specialist who was limited to 28 games this past season by knee problems and waived over the weekend by the New Orleans Hornets, has attracted multiple overtures from the Heat amid the start of the NBA's free-agency period. "I've talked to the Heat several times, and we'll continue to talk to them," agent Tony Dutt told the Sun Sentinel Monday. "We're just looking at all of the options at this point and we're going to sit down later in the week and figure out the top three or four spots that make sense and then he may visit those particular spots." South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The Clippers plan to offer Crawford the mid-level exception that starts at $5 million. The Clippers are willing to offer Crawford, a 6-foot-5 guard, at least a three-year deal, sources said. Los Angeles Times

I just don't see Smith as a three, which is what he would have to be if the Hawks had Howard plus Horford.
