Default Nets after D12 still......

Knowing that the Lakers want to keep Dantoni as coach and Howard's dislike for his system, are the Lakers prepared to continue in this direction and possibly alienating D12 to the point that he leaves unrestricted at the end of the year? Would you go after a 3 team trade as tabled below (and many times including posters here) because imo if the Lakers keep Dantoni and his system then K.Love would be a monster there as a stretch 4 and Gasol would be ideal for the 5.

Quote:
The Brooklyn Nets are preparing to make another run at Dwight Howard, according to a source.

Playing in Brooklyn with Deron Williams and Joe Johnson was at the top of Howard’s list last summer and the Nets are convinced that he still has a strong desire to make the Barclays Center his home office. The Nets have played well under P.J. Carlesimo and feel like the addition of Howard could be the piece that gets them to the NBA Finals.

Nets general manager Billy King has closely monitored the struggling Lakers and quietly searched for a third team with an attractive piece that would help facilitate a trade that would deliver Howard to the Nets, according to sources.

The Lakers have struggled through injuries, a coaching change and a lack of chemistry this season. The team is currently 17-24 and facing the reality that missing the playoffs seems inevitable. The feeling out of Brooklyn is that Howard can be had for the right price because of the Lakers’ struggles and long-term commitment to a collection of pieces that just don’t seem to fit or complement Howard’s assortment of skills.

The only missing element was a third team with an attractive piece that would force the Lakers to consider the future of the franchise and directly question Howard about the direction he’s leaning at this point of the season. King, according to sources, was confident that he had a trade proposal that was a perfect fit for all teams involved.

According to sources, King was planning to contact the Minnesota Timberwolves in order to gauge their interest in a three-team trade that would send Kevin Love to the Lakers, Brook Lopez to the Timberwolves and Dwight Howard to the Nets. Other small pieces would need to be included, but the proposed trade was thought to be intriguing enough to start conversations in the Lakers front office that would force them to deal with Howard earlier than planned.

That idea, however, was shelved when Love was sidelined 8-10 weeks with a broken hand. The Nets believed the Lakers would be interested in Love, but not an injured Love, even if they’re facing missing the playoffs, according to sources.

King will still look around for an attractive piece for the Lakers, but won’t make getting Howard as big a priority as last season, according to sources. But he will continue to watch the Lakers and explore intriguing trade options, sources said.

I said a month ago that D12 would end up in Brooklyn next summer. Still say that'll happen.

I don't think I would do that deal if I were the Wolves. Maybe Pek and D Williams and/or Chase.

Love is a PF and they're apparently (Khan) not that high on Love. A Lopez, Pekovic, D. Williams, Cunningham isn't bad but i still wouldn't deal Love if i were them. But didn't Love hint at possibly wanting out earlier this season?

Lakers have no hope while they have my favorite player Kobe Bryant playing for them, no matter who they get
Love wouldn't work there, more than Howard. There can't be a successful team where two players take 60 shots a game and rests on defense. Such team would end up 110:140
Fuck Lakers, Go Shaq, Go Raptors GO

Hasn't Lopez has been an absolute beast this year? Why would the Lakers not jump on it the way Howard has played.

Lopez, Hump to TO.
Howard, Klieza to Nets.
Bargs, Calderon, Davis to Lakers.

Fwiw Lakers plus 7 wins.

Win win win except for the Nets getting what they want.

Davis > Herpies
Lopez is an injury prone, we already have JV, Shabbadu your trade makes no sense to me

AND Lakers aren't even interested in KLove while his injury status isn't sure, so they will def not want bargnani, when they don't really want Love

Ya heaven forbid we get a great centre until JV is ready (he plays under 20 minutes) for ED and spare parts. All Centres are injury prone. It's because they are 7' ffs. That's why you need a good rotation of them.

And I have no idea what you mean about ED being better than herpies but you don't have a clue how good he is. Or lopez for that matter.
