Nets Would Trade No. 1 Overall Pick For Howard, Should They Win Lottery
After all the ridiculous drama with Howard during the trade deadline (which made the Carmelo Anthony situation look like a standard transaction), Howard eventually agreed to forego his early termination option, giving the Magic one more year to convince Howard to stay. The Magic were obviously thrilled, as they got the chance to sign a good free agent or find a difference maker in the draft to satisfy their franchise player. Now Howard is saying that he still wants a trade before the season starts, and that foregoing his early termination option was a mistake.
I'm really starting to get fed up with this guy. Just make up your mind, Dwight. He's acting like me when I was four years old in a candy store crying because I couldn't decide between a Twix and a Milky Way and my mom wouldn't let me get both. No one can play for two teams, and Dwight seems to want to stay where he's the man and have the fans adore him, but also head to a big market with other superstars and be a realistic contender. He's just gotta pick one and end this ridiculousness. Hopefully this pre-season trade demand is his final decision. If the Nets can make get the ball rolling on a deal before Deron Williams leaves, they have to be considered the front-runners to land Howard.
