Nets certainly seem to be moving about as if they expect Deron to re-sign and Dwight to be traded to them.

This to me scream that they know Dwight isn't coming. Why pick up a guy like Evans if they're going to get Dwight?

How do you split the minutes if both of them are there.

you dont want to play Reggie much more than 10-12 minutes a game but I agree it's not a good sign for Dwight

Evans would be a short-minute backup, it's why he's making less than 2 million a year. The jumpshooter from Bosnia they just signed would be the guy playing alongside Dwight for the majority of the game. For the record, I think Howard winds up somewhere else, but it isn't like they're bringing in Evans to be the starter.

It looked to me that they are bringing in a couple of backup forwards, which meant they intended to ship out Lopez and Humphries in a Dwight trade. That was my take.

Yeah, but the most that Lopez's 2013 contract can be for, without invoking the BYC rules, is a little over $5 million. But unless it has an Asik/Fields style third year for like $27 million there's no way that Pouffy gets less than 3/36 on the open market. And who the hell wants to be paying Lopez $27 million for one year? That's nearly half the freaking salary cap.

So Lopez has to get a market deal, but that means that another team needs to be involved to either take Lopez in exchange for pieces that Orlando wants or to facilitate the deal. But they don't do that for free. Then you need yet another team to take the second ugliest Kardashian sister because the Magic have no interest in him. And suddenly this is up to a four team trade. Too many moving parts.

How do the Clippers NOT come up with $5 million over three years for Reggie Evans? He became a massive fan favorite there and was probably the second-biggest reason they beat the Grizzlies in the first round.

I don't know how the Clippers can replace him and Kenyon. Neither of them is really that great a player right now, but they were playing freaking Brian Cook at PF before they got them. That was just nauseating too. I think they had a rookie last year who might be able to play a little bit of a stretch four, but I am not sure. If Odom plays the way he did last year they'll be in a really bad place.

Can u explain why Brook's deal can only be 5 million in the 1st year?

I think you're confusing him with 2nd round picks and early free agents, Max u can is effected by number of years in the league but the max should be closer to 13 million then the 5 million you're saying.
