Howard to Nets

  1. Why the bottleneck on NBA trades? Calendar and Howard.

    Feb 13, 2012, 12:04 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    We’re a couple months into the NBA season, and there have been very few trades. Before the season we had some biggies — Chris Paul to the Lakers, er, Clippers — but once the season started, that has dried up. And you can expect things to stay pretty much dry past the All-Star game at…

  2. Report: Dwight Howard adds Clippers to list of places he’d sign

    Jan 16, 2012, 6:48 PM EDT

    Magic's Howard meditates just before the tip-off of their NBA basketball game with the New York Knicks in New York

    Dwight Howard with Blake Griffin and Chris Paul? Take that Miami. This would be the new Big Three. Howard apparently likes the idea — almost as much as Clippers fans. No matter how unlikely it is in reality. Howard has added the Clippers to the list of teams he would sign an extension with, reports…

  3. Wednesday And-1 links, where Nets fans want Dwight Howard

    Dec 28, 2011, 11:07 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Nets fans started a chant of “we want Howard” at the team’s home opener Tuesday. No, Deron Williams did not start it. As far as…

  4. Report: Magic want veterans, not to rebuild after Howard

    Dec 28, 2011, 8:08 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Right now, the Dwight Howard soap opera is on hiatus. The Magic have stopped all trade talk and are focusing on this season and convincing Howard to stay in Orlando. I’m pretty sure opening day did not help their cause. In the least. Eventually Orlando is going to have to trade Howard. His demand is…

  5. Lopez injury limits Orlando’s Dwight Howard trade options

    Dec 22, 2011, 4:25 PM EDT

    lopez-howard

    The foot injury to Nets center Brook Lopez has not left the Dwight Howard trade stuck in the mud. It was already there. Orlando has put the breaks on the process — they are not ready to trade Howard. Maybe they think they can convince him to stay, maybe they think the offers improve closer…

  6. Report: Magic end all trade talks for Dwight Howard

    Dec 14, 2011, 2:40 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Do not think for a second this is permanent. But when Christmas Day comes comes Dwight Howard will suit up for the Orlando Magic against the Oklahoma city Thunder. The Orlando Magic have cut off all trade talks for Howard, according to a tweet from Adrian Wojnarowski. Magic decided to take Dwight Howard off market,…

  7. Report: No Dwight Howard trade imminent, but Nets in front of line

    In the end, there will be no trade of Dwight Howard until the Orlando Magic are completely and utterly convinced that they cannot sign him to stay, and then that they got the best possible deal they could for him. Neither of those things are going to happen before Dec. 25. But should the Magic…

  8. Magic may file tampering charges against Nets for talking to Dwight Howard

    Dec 9, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    And you thought the Chris Paul situation was messy…. The Orlando Magic are considering filing tampering charges against two NBA teams for reaching out to Dwight Howard (who is still under contract to Orlando), reports David Aldridge at NBA.com. This report has been confirmed by other sources. Those two teams are the New Jersey Nets…

  9. Deron Williams says 90 percent chance he stays with Nets

    Dec 5, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Deron Williams name gets thrown in with Chris Paul and Dwight Howard a lot. And he is in the same situation — he is an elite player who can opt out at the end of this season and become a free agent. But when the Jazz traded him to New Jersey last year Williams’ situation…

  10. Orlando not ready to trade Dwight Howard. Yet.

    Nov 30, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    dwight_howard

    Give this to Magic general manager Otis Smith — he was pretty up front. He has about the most difficult job in the NBA right now: Either retool the Magic roster enough that Dwight Howard wants to stay (a job Smith made harder on himself with bad moves last year), or find a way to…

  11. Nets GM says he hasn’t talked to Orlando in a year. Riiiight.

    Nov 30, 2011, 1:06 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Celtics

    And now comes the denial of the rumors. Which none of us will believe. Nets GM Billy King played dumb denied rumors that he is about to pitch Orlando on a Dwight Howard trade for Brook Lopez and picks, reports Howard Beck of the New York Times in this tweet. Hanging in East Rutherford today,…

  12. Report: Nets to make big trade offer for Dwight Howard

    Nov 30, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    New Jersey — soon to be Brooklyn — made a big move last year to get its first star in Deron Williams. Now owner Mikhail Prokhorov needs to get a second star and convince them both to stay. How about Dwight Howard? The Nets are going to make a big move to try and get…

  13. Nets really want to land Dwight Howard. Shocking, I know.

    Jul 3, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Deron Williams has chosen his new agent, Jeff Schwartz, according to Marc Stein at ESPN. An agent with a lot of NBA pull and a roster of 20 clients he represents (including Paul Pierce, Kevin Love, Blake Griffin and Lamar Odom). Williams can opt out of his contract next summer and is expected to do…

  14. Dwight Howard tells Orlando fans he’s not Shaq

    May 31, 2011, 8:37 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Dwight Howard may have gotten mad at the Orlando Sentinel for it, but the speculation is everywhere — talk about where Howard will play next is rampant. He can opt out of his current deal in the summer of 2012 and that means if he wants he can put the Orlando Magic in the same…

  15. Dwight Howard takes shot at Orlando Sentinel for “dumb articles”

    May 10, 2011, 9:38 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Dwight Howard has tried. Unlike LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony, who seemed to revel in the attention of trade or free agency rumors (at least at first), Howard has tried to shut it down. He can be a free agent in the summer of 2012 but has refused to discuss it. Monday night, while the…

  16. Just so we’re clear, the Magic aren’t trading Howard

    Apr 29, 2011, 12:25 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Dwight Howard is not talking about Dwight Howard the free agent. But theoretically next season Howard could turn the Magic into this season’s Denver Nuggets — he could use the threat of his free agency to force a trade. But that’s not happening either. Magic GM Otis Smith made that clear as possible to ESPN…

  17. Dwight Howard tries to kill free agency rumors. Good luck with that.

    Apr 29, 2011, 10:10 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Give Dwight Howard this — he is trying. LeBron James made a half-hearted effort to stamp out the free agent rumor circus around him, but at first he seemed to enjoy the attention enough that he let the fire start and by the time he tried to put it out it was too late. Carmelo…

  18. Dwight Howard says he loves Orlando. Right now, anyway.

    Mar 2, 2011, 12:23 PM EDT

    Image (1) dhoward_rebound-thumb-250x156-18908.jpg for post 3840

    Note to Dwight Howard — if you don’t want people speculating about your future, don’t say things like this. We told you yesterday of the reports that the New Jersey Nets planned to go after Howard when he became a free agent, or before. Of course, Howard was asked about that before the game Tuesday…

  19. Report: Dwight Howard is next target for Nets

    Mar 1, 2011, 5:59 PM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    Dwight Howard doesn’t want be part of the 2012 free agent rumor mill, but just when he thought he was out… they pull him back in. We mentioned earlier today that Deron Williams was going to be an eager recruiter for the Nets. The first target will be Dwight Howard, according to the Bergen Record.…
