Dwight Howard Will Not be Going to the Brooklyn Nets
After all the talk throughout last season and all the speculation that Howard would be a Net next season, it looks like it is not going to happen. Brooklyn has signed center Brook Lopez to a contract extension, reportedly $61 million over 4 years.
The resigning of Lopez effectively ends any chances of trying to put together a package to bring Howard to the Nets. His signing assured that he can’t be traded until January 15th. It would have been big for Brooklyn to get Howard, but I think the Nets are going to be ok next season.
Now let the speculation begin over where Superman will land now. So far the Magic are talking with Houston and Los Angeles. Some speculated that Orlando might be able to entice Howard back for next season, but sources say the big man is still not interested in the Magic. I don’t know if it is realistic for the Lakers to be able to acquire Howard, but that could be a fit for both him and LA. Kobe doesn’t have many years left and if Howard were to prove himself, that team would be built around him within 5 years. Let’s see what happens.
