Why hasn't anyone thought of trading Dwight? He's been inconsistent. Also at this rate, he's definitely not going to re-sign with the Lakers. Why not get good players in exchange? Just look at some of the opportunities in these trades.

Why?

1. Trading Howard
2. Most of the trade ideas are unreal or terrible.

I get sick to my stomach sometimes with the posts/threads posted here, truly is the fan base this clueless at times?

Because that is madness.

Dwight wouldnt sign with any of these teams in the offseason... so why would they want to rent him in exchange for gutting their team?

I know some ppl look at this thread like wtf but in reality if we fail to make the playoffs or make it and get bounced out early you have to think how will Howard feel after a fail season? I think he might stay but what if he decides he has a better chance to win somewhere else because the other 2 guys in the team are just getting older. Again im about 70-80% sure he'll stay but we really don't know what his thought process is, if by mid season we are still losing and he doesn't give the team some assurance that he will stay no matter what I would think about possibilities.

It's not as stupid as it sounds but unfortunately it would cause an Uproar in LA and It would be really hard to get the proper value back for a win now situation. It would have to be like Derrick Rose and Noah for D12 and Blake or some weird 3 team trade. It's not going to happen so why worry. We need to gain some confidence and just play effin BALL

I dont think this thread is totally crap - obviously trading Dwight now is about as insane as anything.
But, think about this:
- Dwight will be a FA this summer (and so will CP3 btw).
- Dwight wants to win
- Atlanta and Dallas will both go after Howard very hard this summer and both can offer max deals.
- Dwight will probably sign with the Lakers if he thinks he has a chance of winning
- If the Lakers fall too short in the playoff this summer, he very well could sign elsewhere
- Basically, it comes down to whether the D'Antoni system will work out.

A couple of things are in our favor, though. Mitch will do whatever is needed to keep Dwight. The only thing he wont do, i hope, is use the amnesty on Kobe. Everyone else aren't safe, including Nash, Pau and D'Antoni. Another thing: Mitch is very smart. If he sense, that Dwight isn't going to re-sign, he'll do a sign-and-trade and get back assets. The most compelling reason for Dwight to stay is that we probably will figure everything out and be very dangerous come playofftime. Whether it is with Pau on the team, who knows, but once Kobe-Dwight-Nash is firing on all cylinders, the Lakers will be dagerous despite the early struggles.
