Question? Dwight to Cleveland
Trade idea: Dwight for Varejao, Walton, 4th and 24th pick and second rounders
What you guys think. Dwight gets to play with Kyrie. Orlando start over with 3 first round picks.
I think you should stop drinking... insane.
insane for who. Dwight dont wanna be in Orlando. the only thing is if he would resign with Cleveland. Likelyhood of that unknown. Orlando will lose Howard at the end of next season anyway and if they do trade him for a couple of good players they still wont be anywhere near competing for championship. So why not try to get some good draft picks
insane for everybody :
- Howard will NEVER extend his contract if it means living in cleveland (where were you the last 2 years ?). He wants to play for a big market AND a contender. Cleveland is not a big market and not a serious contender.
- Cleveland has been LeBroned... they won't take the risk to be Howarded... No team will take the risk to trade for Howard if they can't be sure he will extend his contract.
- Walton is an awfull contract, Varejao is not a man you can build around and has a big contract Orlando won't want to take back if they want to re build... pick 4 and 24 ?... I think they could get more : portland would be a better try... but Howard should refuse to be exetended there.
NO WAY. The issue is not what Orlando can get but what Howard will allow them to get...

insane for everybody :
The 2012-2013 salary cap amounts were locked in as part of the Collective Bargaining Agreement settlement reached last December, both sides agreed to try and “grow” their way out of the economic problems they had and rather than hammer the players with roll backs, the cap number was basically frozen for two years to let revenues catch up to the new formula. Most pundits believe that based on revenue from last season that if the NBA keeps pace, the salary cap in July of 2013 could grow to as much as $60 million per team. The current cap figure is $58.044 million per team.
''My first time, it was much more dramatic. It was a team that was trying to change its image. It was a team that had won 21 games in the regular season,'' Aldridge said. ''So that time was a lot different than this one. This time we really have some good pieces, and I think guys are actually better this time. ''
“Yeah, you always want to play alongside the best people that you can as a team,” Patterson said. “We’ve got a lot of competition at the four, we’ve got a lot of fours. We have a lot of people who can pretty much play on the court, a lot of guys who can use their skills to help this team out in anyway possible. For me, personally, I want to be the starting four, so I’m going to do whatever it takes in order for that to happen. So I’ve got to work hard everyday in practice, be the first one here and the last one to leave, and just show the coaches that I deserve it.
What We Learned From the Preseason: This is going to be unfair. LeBron James is gearing up for what could be the single greatest individual season of his career (which is saying something), and adding Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis to the defending champs isn’t going to make things any easier on the rest of the league. These guys are going to be impossible to beat most nights, and predicting 18 losses may just be wishful thinking. As long as LBJ is healthy, the rest of the league shall weep with despair.
