    7'4, and he is an athletic freak.

    Probasketballdraft: Keep hearing the Dwight Howard sweepstakes has wider net than many realize. One team to watch in particular is LA. Clippers are a darkhorse. Word around the league is that Dwight Howard's value has fallen because of back injury and the way he handled his impending free agency. One exec I spoke to said that a package of DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe, and Caron Butler might be enough. Relationship between Howard and the Magic is turning ugly in a hurry.

    Anyone but the Clippers.....

    "I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."

    Trade him to the Hornets for Vasquez, Ayon, and Dyson.

    Ken Berger:
    Also, Houston's offer sheet with Omer Asik has spiked interest in unrestricted centers Marcus Camby and Chris Kaman, sources say.

    You've got to s******* me!!!!! I'd take Houston's rookies over that crap that the Clips are trying to send over. I'd hate to be a Magic can right now.

    I would love to be a Magic can...sounds awesome

    No but seriously, there's no way DeAndre, Bledsoe and Butler are a good deal for the Magic. I would hope that the Magic would at the least try to pull Blake, if not more.

    Per interesting tweet from @ProBasketballDraft regarding Clippers/Dwight Howard, source with knowledge of team's plans says no chance of a deal there so long as Blake Griffin or Chris Paul are the pieces Orlando pushes for in a possible deal. And, naturally, they would be.

    My post was a quote per Amak. They won't which is why the whole Dwight to the Clippers isn't even worth discussion. The clippers have two high profile assets that aren't touchable. Although if I were the clippers i'd send Blake Griffin in a heartbeat.

    Here's some discussion fodder: Remember when Williams said a while ago (think right after they won the lottery) that there were guys interested in playing here but that they were current under contract so he couldn't talk about them? Perhaps this lends itself to the notion that this year won't be the year of big spending and maybe some of those guys become free agents in 2013?

    daldridgetnt: Despite Dwight Howard's desire to go to Brooklyn, there's currently no Nets deal that interests Orlando, according to source. Story up soon.

    Kind of reminds me of CP3's 'desire' to go to NY. There wasn't a Knicks deal that interested the Hornets. Like the Hornets, Orlando has to get the best deal for their team, not for Dwight.

    I have a feeling Howard ends up a Laker or
    Rocket. It's been the only talent for talent type trades worth it for Orlando.

    Adrian Wojnarowski:

    As teams finalize framework of Joe Johnson deal contingent on DWill commitment, Nets won't be sending future 1st to Atlanta, source tells Y!

    David Aldridge:

    Breaking: Nets "very close" to acquiring Joe Johnson from Hawks for Farmar, Petro, Morrow, Williams, Stevenson and protected pick (Houston).

    Source indicated earlier that the Nets would proceed with JJ deal whether or not they get commitment from Deron Williams to stay w/Brooklyn.

    I will never again say that a trade seems to unbelievable. Any trade is possible it just takes a GM ****ty enough.

    I cannot understand why any team would bail Atlanta out of JJs contract. It is a huge albatross. He is good, but 31 years old with about $90 million left over 4 years. Amazing how stupid some GMs. The Nets will be built around JJ, DWill and Lopez I guess.

    Is Billy King still the Nets' GM?
