Miguel Angel Paniagua: Rumor with some legs from Charlotte:
Bobcats could be considering a trade package of DeSagana
Diop, Ben Gordon and a draft pick for Pau Gasol. Twitter

This is a big slap to everyone if they consider this offer, we get no one in the package that can give is 10PPG+ every night.... this looks like a salary-dump to me.

Would love a trade breakdown of this being good or bad. I see Ben Gordon in there, which means a back-up to Kobe.....after that, well..........like I said, I need a breakdown.

Draft pick and a legit scorer off the bench would do wonders, at least we could draft someone.

Source: Nets Preparing To Pursue Trade For Dwight
Jan 22, 2013 11:02 AM EST


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.

The draft pick intrigues me, too. I know it's a weak draft, but I still think Nerlens or Shabazz could be a great young pickup.

Gordon isn't a good defender, as I recall, so I'm not so sure how this would help other than give Clark more playing time and maybe let Kobe relax on offense (like he would, lol).

Ben Gordon would be nice. I know he's struggled since the good old days, but the guy can still score buckets and we could use a scorer besides Kobe. Diop doesn't interest me in the slightest, but he'd be alright too.

What I'd REALLY like is Henderson/Gordon or something like that. That'd be fantastic for us and a great fit. Keep the pick.

Thanks for posting the actual article where it says clearly at the end that Love's injury killed this idea.

Not to mention, Love over Howard? Poor choice. We can get Love in a couple of years WITH Howard. Pass.

ben gordon is one of the most underrrated players in the league...the scoring bursts he had with chi in play offs were nothing short of amazing...great shooter...and humble guy who doesnt mind to start from the bench ...i would absolutly love to get him...
i dont know any play in the next draft...but we need some young,cheap players with potentional...
diop is solid 5min back up for howard...
but i would like if we could somehow get some SF or atleast tyrus tomas...i had high hopes about him...

this might not be bad trade but no need to rush it...couse i doubt it would put us in the play off race this year...

Ben's scoring off the bench would do this team wonders. Also, Diop brings some defense. Honestly right now it's A.T.G.R.O.P.

no...there are maybe only 3 or 4 players i would trade howard for...everybody else...no...
he is our future...lets see him first healthy and with good roster...and i am pretty sure he will resign with us...so no need to trade him...
