Dwight Howard Situation

I know right, can we just get this saga over with?

right now, this is what the update is.  the magic wanted to send dwight to the lakers, but bynum isn’t guaranteeing that he will sign long term with orlando, so that’s a no go for the magic.  so the magic went back to brooklyn.  brooklyn was trying to find a third team to help out with the dwight deal, and it seemed like orlando wasn’t willing to cooperate last week with it.  the details of it is not all revealed yet, but i think marshon brooks would go to cleveland, as orlando seems to think they have no need for him, brook lopez and kris humphries to orlando, and dwight (of course) going to brooklyn.  there is also concern that there will not be a balance in competitiveness in the league.  with that being said, lakers just got nash last week.  honestly, if a team can complete this kind of trade, and if they are willing to do so, then why not?  i think most people would rather see a bunch of really good players play together, rather than a bunch of teams with just one star trying to carry their whole team, ala the bulls.  and, if the lakers get dwight, isn’t that the same thing?  but that’s just me.

in other free agent news…

KIRK HINRICH is going back to the bulls.  that’s a nice pickup for them, since derrick rose is injured with a torn acl and mcl.  hinrich is a solid point guard, knows what he needs to do, and is a decent defender as well.

RYAN ANDERSON is being traded to the hornets for some dude.  i think in order to make this work, the hornets have to renounce the rights to some players, like chris kaman and carl laundry, both who are good players to have.  this move wil give anthony davis room to operate all day in the post.  looks like things are shaping up only a year after trading chris paul.

MARCUS CAMBY is discussing being traded to the knicks.  he would like a starting job, which miami can give him, but miami is not in a position financially to offer as much as the knicks could offer him.  i think camby should go to miami, not because i’m a heat fan, but because it’s a better fit, with chandler already on the knicks.

COURTNEY LEE is being courted by celtics.  after losing ray allen to the heat, the celtics are desperate for another shooting guard to either start, or backup jason terry/avery bradley.  that would be a good pickup, as lee is a 40% shooter from downtown.

NICK YOUNG is going to the sixers.  don’t really get this move, unless iguodala is moving.  they had to amnesty elton brand to make this move.
