Nets get ready for Dwight Howard offer

Posted by shawn cassidy on November 30, 2011 at 2:30 AM

The two top free agents of next summer seem to be in the headlines early after the lockout. Here is latest.

The New Jersey Nets are prepared to offer a trade package featuring Brook Lopez and two future first-round picks to acquire Dwight Howard before the Orlando Magic center becomes a free agent in July 2012, according to sources close to the situation.

Sources told ESPN.com this week that, to sweeten the proposal, New Jersey would likewise offer to take back the contract of Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu, who has three seasons left on his contract worth just under $35 million. Absorbing Turkoglu's remaining salary would become financially feasible for the Nets after the expected release of swingman Travis Outlaw through the amnesty clause that will be included in the NBA's new collective bargaining agreement and by including another smaller contract or two in the deal.


i want Dwight Howard in green. The reason? Rajon can dominate with Howard at center.

That's what makes sense to me. Rondo and Howard would be record setting. That said, people over-praise Howard. If you set Rondo up with any strong inside defender/scorer, it could be record-setting. Even Ty Chandler could have a big impact, given Rondo and if Johnson develops well.
