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. 14 minutes ago

Lol!!! The Nets are desperate. They'd have to give u Lopez, Williams and Wallace before we even entertained that. Mitch has every intention of making Dwight OUR franchise piece moving forwardM.

He'd get rid of Pau first...actually... Pau for Gerald Wallace...hmmm..

They both suck, but I guess Love is a better fit. As long as we get good pieces, I'm good with it

4 years 9 million. Aka not worth it. Pau needs to be traded to Minnesota in a 3 team deal or straight up

They are the only team that interests me.

But adds an extra 2 years we are stuck with him. He's averaging 9ppg and 5rpg. He can barely run. He's really not worth it. I'd rather just take pekovic, Williams, barea and a pick than take Wallace

Pau would finally be playing in the low block. Defense would be an issue, but what Lakers need right now is offensive chemistry. And they can't have that with Dwight

Not even the Wizards fans talk like this when they are a pathetic team almost every season. You don't see them talking about trading John Wall for Kemba Walker.

I'm shocked at the things that are being posted.
