No more Playoff appearance for them anytime soon, Magic will be rebuilding for the next 5 years...

yeah i dont understand this move. this kind of kills it for the flakers. thats the good news and here is why: they will need players to fill their roster. bynum for howard puts them in the same situation next year. bynum can walk. i think howard winds up in houston or brooklyn. scola+martin+3 first rd picks for howard and turkoglu. or howard for marshon brooks, humphries and brook lopez.

Not possible. Nets are trading for Johnson with those players, and they are gonna have very little cap room. Doubt Howard goes to the Nets. Also rockets have signed Asik to 8 mil deal so they don't need another C!

Report by Ken Berger ‏@KBergCBS

Dwight to Nets still is possible

Saying 3 way trade involving Cavs making progress

Nets send Humps to Cavs but Cavs want a 1st round too

Nets send Brook Lopez & 3 picks to Magics

Magic send Dwight to Nets

Just do it already,,, I'm tired of this crybaby diva!!! And I don't want him in a Laker jersey.

Hornets are one scary team with potential. Watch out for them with Eric Gordon. They look good!!

idk if u are aware of the details of the joe johnson trade but ill inform u on them. nets send the expiring contracts of jordan farmar, anthony morrow, johan petro, jordan williams and deshawn stevenson for johnson. the players i mentioned would be in the potential deal for howard, these being lopez, humphries, and marshon brooks.plus the salary cap doesnt matter to the owner of the nets prokhorov. hes a billionaire who will spend to build a winner. idk if the rockets dont need another center, i doubt asik is their starting center. lol. doesnt matter if they gave him an absurd contract. i mean it would be good news for the western conference if the rockets decide to start asik. hes nothing more than a backup. it would be a massive downgrade from dalembert and camby.

yeah. i agree. i hope howard stays in the eastern conference. @clipsgforce, i agree. if you look at their team, they are up and coming

Starting 5: jack, ej (if he stays), ryan anderson, davis, possibly kaman or jason smith

bench: austin rivers, xavier henry, aminu, landry. smith(if kaman stays)

thats at least an 8th seed team.

Ryan Anderson flourished in a system that was built for 3pt shooters and had a massive threat on offense that helped release the pressure that the wing players would get in Dwight Howard.

Anthony Davis does NOT have a good offensive game, and the Hornets are hoping he gets one. I can't honestly see him scoring more than 14-15 PPG unless their are massive injuries to that roster. Not only will Anderson have to deal with the Hornets intent on getting Davis touches, but let's not forget ME MYSELF AND ERIC GORDON is on that team as well. I fully expect the Hornets to match the PHX offer despite Gordon doing the EXACT SAME CRAP ODOM PULLED 9 YEARS AGO!

Anderson is a good player when on the right team and in the right system. Monty Williams is all defense, not offense. DAvis is going to get crushed when attempting any sort of post moves inside with his tiny frame and lack of offensive skills.

but u forget anderson can bang in the paint as well. he is not afraid of physical play. he is not solely a spot up 3 point shooter. hes skilled enough to modify his game.

Anderson took 5.5 2pt FG attempts per game last year as opposed to 7 3pt attempts. For his career he takes 4.6 3pters a game while only shooting 3.6 2pters a night. Anderson does not bang in the paint, trust me I watched sportscenter, I watched Magic games, I saw the magic play in person multiple times over the last few years, I've had Ryan Anderson on my fantasy basketball team and sat by the Stat Tracker on Yahoo and saw where he shoots the ball.

Anderson is not a post up player. He's a shooter plain and simple. He's got OK at best rebounding skills. I just wonder if NOLA is going to let Gordon attack the paint and will to make up for no low post scoring.

u are right about anderson being more of a knockdown shooter, but like i said, he has the skill set to score in the paint, if the system calls for it. hes not bg, but he will be the small forward on this team. if kaman doesnt resign, they still have carl landry. they will be undersized at the forward/center spots. i still think this was a good sign and trade for nola. like u say, if gordon were to stay i feel they will play like the suns. fast tempo, shooters gallore. based on the pieces they have, they could do that. anderson, rivers, gordon can shoot the 3 well. they have a solid pg in jarrett jack.

I'm trying to see how Ryan Anderson is going to try and guard Lebron or KD or Melo. Just thinking about it makes me laugh.
