I just saw Dwight's interview where he says that the main reason he wants to leave at all is that Orlando GM didn't do the specific trades he asked. He "wants to be involved...."

(and i can't stand that attitude but that's beside the point)

In that regard, Prokhorov might seem much more accommodating. When they got Deron, the first thing Prokhorov did was take him to dinner, discuss how they are going to build around him, how they are going to build a global brand around him, etc etc.
While Bulls' Reinsdorf has this hardball rep of breaking up the Jordan team and forcing Jordan and Phil into early retirement.
So it makes kind of makes sense -- but not for the best reasons.
