Prokhorov, King met with Howard about playing in NJ

According to reports, Nets' GM Billy King and owner Mikhail Prokhorov secretly met with Dwight Howard in Miami on Thursday night to recruit him to the Nets. Howard is under contract with the Magic for at least one more season.

If true, the allegations would be a bombshell story and could result in the commissioner handing down severe penalties against the Nets.

Earlier on Friday, Chris Broussard of ESPN reported that Dwight Howard had made up his mind to join the Nets and would be demanding a trade to New Jersey, which Broussard stated could be completed as soon as Friday. Broussard did not initially mention the alleged recruiting visit which apparently was successful in persuading Howard.

There's a few things that I never could believe

A woman when she weeps
A merchant when he swears
A thief who says he'll pay
A lawyer when he cares
A snake when he is sleeping
A drunkard when he prays
I don't believe you go to heaven when you're good
And everything goes to hell, anyway

It'll be interesting to see what happens here since Howard is basically dictating where he wants to go and Stern this goes against everything that Stern has said he's stood for.

It's really too bad that there wasn't a way to trade D12 to the Hornets (and have it work for ORL).

That would probably solve everything and people would be coming out of the woodwork to buy that team.
