But lakers have MDA. Lol.
If Clippers gets to keep bledsoe then the Howard to Clippers isn't that hard to believe.
Reason why I think Howard would move to Clippers.
-Doc Rivers > MDA
-He'll be able to stay in LA.
-Most likely be 1st option in offense.
-CP3 and Dwight have been talking lately.
The Lakers aren't going to help the Clippers make a superteam.
Dwight's only option this off-season aside from CP3 and Him going to Atlanta is going to a depleted Rockets team with no CBA space after they got rid of their depth to sign him.
That's why the Lakers say they aren't gonna sign and trade Dwight.
Cause his two options are virtually he either re-signs with the Lakers and becomes a part of their 2014 plan to contend for a title for the next 5 years or he goes to Houston that depletes their team to sign him with the worst bench in the western conference and no room to grow and in CBA hell for 30 million less.
if those are Dwight's only two options the Lakers aren't worried.
So they aren't gonna make that decision easier for Dwight by helping him form a superteam anywhere but the Lakers.
The Rockets know that too, they know after they get rid of their depth that Dwight wouldn't be enough.
That's why they are trying to free up money to sign Chris Paul with it and aquire Dwight in a sign and trade.
It shows that their first choice as far as the money goes is spending it on CP3 cause I don't hear anything about them offering the Clippers anything for Chris Paul in a sign and trade.
That says a lot about them.
While I entertain what we SHOULD ask if we absolutely were going to S&T Howard, given his options if we do absolutely nothing, I don't worry too much. Going to a depleted Houston team hurts him more than us. We'd then have money to sign two max players in the 2014 off-season with the money he didn't take and he'd suffer a first or second round exit for the next few years for 30 million less.
The Lakers aren't gonna do Dwight any favors cause they know the cards they hold and how much better their plan is from Houston's which is his only option if we didn't S&T him, nor should they.
