Utterly moronic if Howard doesn't agree to an extension. He won't stay in Houston as a free agent.

Is it 25 million that he loses out on if he doesn't re-sign with whatever team he is traded to? If so does he really pass on that much money? I'm sure that was a factor with Williams re-signing with the Nets.
Well, he would be committing another four or five years of his NBA prime. I daresay even that fact would make you give less weight to the money. Maybe I'm wrong but I look at the rockets and see an utter mess of a team if this trade goes through. No picks, bad contracts, not a whole bunch of talent outside Howard, etc.

McGee has been offered 5 years/50M
And I don't think money was a big factor with DWill. He said he was undecided until the Joe Johnson trade made the Nets appear to be the better team to play on.
"I don't know if people know — I dislocated my pinkie finger. And [Tyreke] told me, 'You wanna go home or you wanna be here?' I want to be here. And he said, 'All right, then go tape it up and let's play. Let's go. We not stoppin' at no stores. Straight gas. That's what we do, just keep going.'"
Could Brooklyn even have the ability to sign Howard next offseason without trading for him?
