LA isn't going to trade Howard, he's their ticket to future contention.
Quote from: Fafnir on January 10, 2013, 08:17:25 PMLA isn't going to trade Howard, he's their ticket to future contention.Would you rather have Marc Gasol safely locked up for 3 years on a pretty fair deal or take the chance on Howard maybe or maybe not resigning?I'm not sure myself, I think its 50-50. I get that Dwight is a franchise changer, but that LA team is still a very very good team with Marc Gasol there. He and Pau would be a very complementary pairing.What about:LA Trades: World Peace, DwightMemphis trades: Gay, M. GasolEh, I don't think that would happen actually because I don't think Dwight would agree to an extension
You'd rather have the ability to give Howard the most years, the longest contract, and sell him on building around him.The Lakers will have no problem selling Dwight on that vision. They'll set themselves up for big cap room in the upcoming years and use that to land the pieces around Howard to contend again.
