    Yup. I really doubt the extension talk is that intense or realistic. Kupchak is the master of the smokescreen.

    Re: Three-Way ORL/LAL/Cavs Rumor

    Look at Wojnarowski's latest series of tweets. Howard's still pressing to be traded, and is wondering why Hennigan didn't do deals w/ Nets/Lakers prior to Johnson/Nash signings. This is ludicrous. Howard signed the extension, and now he's wondering why the brand new GM didn't just give him away. It's not enough to clean out one FO, you need to decimate another, Dwight? What a piece of shit.

    Hennigan's in a no-win situation. Feel bad for the guy.

    It's official; I hate Dwight Howard more than LeBron James now. What a douchebag. I will only hate him less if we get Bynum in a deal involving him.

    Hennigan is also looking for a package that Denver got from the Knicks. The main problem with that is that Anthony made it clear that is where he wanted to go and the Knicks had the pieces to get it done. With Howard there only seems to be two teams that he is willing to go to LA/Brooklyn and they do not have those same pieces. Now if a team like Houston or golden state is willing to trade their young pieces for a one year rental more power to them, they can let me know how that turn out for them.

    Unless something we haven't heard of comes up, and a team like the Warriors offers Thompson, Barnes, and another 1st for what would be nothing more than a 1-year rental, then the best offer IMO for Orlando is the 3 way deal involving the Lakers/Rockets/Magic or Lakers/Cavs/Magic. The Magic will be able to tank without taking on large contracts attached to marginal players like Kris Humphries or Brook Lopez. I'd rather have a package of picks/TT or all those young pieces from the Rockets than a max center who can't rebound.

    This could also be another reason why the Cavs haven't even signed Alonzo Gee. Trying to maintain as much flexibility as possible for a major move like this, especially if it meant taking on Turkoglu and Quentin Richardson (both SFs).

    Re: Three-Way ORL/LAL/Cavs Rumor

    It is also important to point out Houston just signed 2 of the 3 rookies (and Howard has sent word to their front office not to trade for him) I am getting the feeling that Hou is not willing to go all out for Bynum and that the Cavs are a more likely trade partner for door number 3..LA should be making another push in the next 24-48 hours and I would not be surprised if this gets moved back to the main forum by the weekend :rolleyes:

    This trade could work, lots of expirings and cap relief for the Magic, a swap of Blake/JRich saves a year and about $6 mill overall. The Magic would rid themselves of all bad contracts and successfully start up the tank with a good prospect in TT.

    I also made another deal without a swap of Blake/JRich, but other pieces were kept as they were.

    Cavs will probably not be the 3rd team. Houston is more likely.

    You might be right.

    Houston can trade Donatas M. soon and Lamb is still unsigned. Two guys I can see Orlando wanting.

    Houston just needs to back the fuck up, Bynum is ours for the taking. Just sign Lamb and be happy with your young core. This bitch it going back to the main forum rather soon I'd guess :chuckles: Something is brewing and I sure hope it has to do with the Cavs. We have so many picks we can send Orlando and we have a shitload of cap space. That extra pick we acquired today is another small piece to the Bynum puzzle perhaps.

    you make a good point.

    cavs do have 12 picks in the next couple of years.

    But Hennigan is a dumbass he is trying to play poker with the big boys. Hennigan is only 30yo.

    He wants the same package that denver got for melo and I don't think that can happen.

    Re: Three-Way ORL/LAL/Cavs Rumor

    I don't think it has anything to do with that (yet). Rudolph is pissed because ESPN basically stole his story without crediting Rudolph and RealGM. And they have done the same thing in the past to Kevin Ding (LA reporter), which someone else informed him about earlier tonight.

    Rudolph has since followed up with complaint tweets (if that is what they are called) to ESPN. I doubt he'll get anywhere...

    Re: Three-Way ORL/LAL/Cavs Rumor

    Chris Grant is 40. Sam Presti was hired at the age of 30. Masai Ujiri, the Nuggets GM who pulled off the heist for Melo, is 42. Not really sure what age has to do with this at all.

    Re: Three-Way ORL/LAL/Cavs Rumor

    What leverage does Orlando have now? Only chance is Houston and Cavs outbidding each other for Bynum. I mean Orlando trades him to LA now, or he walks to Dallas. I do not think Orlando wants to deal with the Nets, as they have no way of taking on bad contracts. Plus, imagin the shit he gets for ruining lottery position. DH was right, he needed to make this move early before FA signings could occur. I don't know what's worse, DH or how Orlando played this.
