i would take a gamble on Carter-Williams if we had another late 1st round pick, wouldn't waste a lottery pick on him, its gonna be interesting to see where we land in the draft

He is projected as a top 5 pick so if we are gonna get him it would be with our pick this year. He reminds me a lot of Russell Westbrook he would be perfect player for us someone who can get to whole with athletism and still have decent passing skills to get it to our outside shooters (JJ if we keep him and Affalo) plus can get Nicholson and Vuc good looks at the basket. Westbrook had knocks coming in he had to get better as a shooter but we need a Rose Westbrook type for our offense to be successful and he could develop into that

a lot like Westbrook he is raw yes but if he can develop his shot he has the athletic ability to be a Westbrook or Rose type of PG

And Ellington, and a protected 1st round pick. Cavs make out like total bandits.

Ellington is having a good year so far and you are right. Cavs make out huge in this deal. Have a feeling with the new ownership we are going to see the Grizzlies of old shedding all talent for money saving.

Dwightmare lives!!!

The Brooklyn Nets are preparing to make another run at Dwight Howard, according to a source.
Playing in Brooklyn with Deron Williams and Joe Johnson was at the top of Howard’s list last summer and the Nets are convinced that the seven-time All-Star still has a strong desire to make the Barclays Center his home office. The Nets have played well under P.J. Carlesimo and feel like the addition of Howard could be the piece that gets them to the NBA Finals.

Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King has kept a close eye on the struggling Lakers and quietly searched for a third team with an attractive piece that would help facilitate a trade that would deliver Howard to the Nets, according to sources.

The Lakers have struggled through injuries, a coaching change and a lack of chemistry this season. The team is currently 17-24 and facing the reality that missing the playoffs seems inevitable. The feeling out of Brooklyn is that Howard can be had for the right price because of the Lakers’ struggles and long-term commitment to a collection of pieces that just don’t seem to fit or compliment Howard’s assortment of skills.

The only missing element was a third team with an attractive piece that would force the Lakers to consider the future of the franchise and directly question Howard about the direction he’s leaning at this point of the season. King, according to sources, was confident that he had a trade proposal that was a perfect fit for all teams involved.

According to sources, King was planning to contact the Minnesota Timberwolves in order to gauge their interest in a three-team trade that would send Kevin Love to the Lakers, Brook Lopez to the Timberwolves and Dwight Howard to the Nets. Other small pieces would need to be included, but the proposed trade was thought to be intriguing enough to start conversations in the Lakers front office that would force them to deal with Howard earlier than planned.

That idea, however, was hurt when Love was sidelined 8-10 weeks with a broken hand. The Nets believed the Lakers would be interested in Love, but not an injured Love, even if they’re facing missing the playoffs, according to sources.

King will still look around for an attractive piece for the Lakers, but won’t make getting Howard as big a priority as last season, according to sources. But he will continue to watch the Lakers and explore intriguing trade options, sources said.

They probably think if they get him to his #1 spot, he'll try with more effort cause he'll be happy.

Okay, I just looked up about Michael Carter-Williams and I really like this guy. He is a 6'6" PG that can pass the ball (Averaging over 9 assists), can rip the ball from other players (Averaging over 3 steals), and can dunk very hard. Reminds me a lot of my MyPLAYER on NBA 2K13.

You want Houston to give up the two best assets in the trade? Harden is clearly the only blue chip in the deal especially when comparing his PER to the shot happy Afflalo, and then when you look at a 23 year old Pat Patterson for a third of the cost of Big Baby, Orlando wins on both sides.

Why even bother working trades with Harden? He is not going anywhere anytime soon. Its like verbal diarrhea

Can someone tell me if we received the lakers first round pick for this upcoming draft in the Howard trade? Because based on their record, that would be hilarious.
