Nets Trying to Bring Cavs Into the Fold to Secure Trade of Dwight Howard
Everything is still up in the air with the Dwight Howard trade.
It does seem at some point the Magic are going to get rid of him, to who is still up for discussion. The Nets are trying their best to create their own mega team and ironically they might have to get the team involved who lost the player that started all the teams going the SuperFriends route.
The Nets are progressing with plans to recruit a third team to absorb salary in a blockbuster trade proposal that would send Dwight Howard to Brooklyn, league sources told CBSSports.com Sunday.
A key component of the proposed deal with Orlando would be finding a third team to take the Nets’ Kris Humphries in a sign-and-trade arrangement. Cleveland has emerged as a “possible destination” for Humphries in such a scenario, in which the Nets would attempt to accumulate at least three first-round picks to send to the Magic in their package for Howard, one of the sources said.
The Cavs have as many as six first-round picks in the next three drafts — three of them from previous trades, with various levels of protection. However, with cap space to sign Humphries as a free agent, getting Humphries alone wouldn’t provide any incentive for Cleveland to surrender one of those picks.
