@JRudolphSports: The Brooklyn Nets are preparing to make another run at Dwight Howard, according to a source. http://t.co/otZLGk5W
Quote:
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 the seven-time All-Star 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.

Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King has kept a close eye on 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 compliment 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 hurt 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.

Btw, this is the guy that broke the first Dwight trade. He's apparently very close to Dwight.

As for the Wovles-Nets deal, I don't see Minny wanting Brook Lopez of all people for Love. And I wouldn't do that deal obviously. We can just sign Love to play with Dwight when he becomes a FA.

Re: Official 2013 Trade Deadline Thread

Adding Kevin Love is probably about the best return you can hope for if you trade Dwight. Although you may just be trading one malcontent big man for another.

No, you probably can't. When's the last time you guys had the cap room to sign a max free agent? Even if Kobe is gone you guys will have players brought in to take up that cap space.

Like Kevin Love? I don't seriously think we could get him, but the plan does appear to open up cap space when Kobe leaves to rebuild around Dwight. And I would much rather have Dwight than Love.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that Kevin Love will be wearing a Rockets jersey in '15-'16.

I could see that happening. Would make for a pretty nice youngish core of guys.

Yea, they'll have Lin's max-sized final year to play with in trades, and Love's jumpshot-oriented game isn't a problem when Asik is eating up space in the paint. They'll have to come up with a good young player or something better than two of their own picks, but the makings of a logical three-teamer is there.

Not a bad consolation after missing out on Howard. With Harden and Love jacking up shots, having a guy like Asik in the paint will be nice rebounding wise as well.
