Clippers Reportedly Facilitating Proposed 4-Team Trade for Dwight Howard

The latest in the interminable Dwightmare is that this fiasco might be getting close to actually coming to an end. ESPN reports: “Sources said that the Nets and Magic are cautiously optimistic that the Cavaliers and Clippers will help them facilitate a four-way trade that lands [Dwight] Howard in Brooklyn. According to sources the Nets would receive Howard, Jason Richardson, Chris Duhon and Earl Clark in the proposed deal. The Magic would get Brook Lopez, Luke Walton, Damion James, Shelden Williams, Armon Johnson and three first-round picks — two from the Nets and a lottery protected first from the Clippers. The Cavs would get Kris Humphries, Quentin Richardson, Sundiata Gaines, a first round pick from the Nets and three million in cash. The Clippers would receive MarShon Brooks. Further hurdles exist in that Lopez, Humphries, James, Williams, Johnson and Gaines would all have to agree to sign-and-trades to move them. Sources said that the complicated deal was getting ‘close.’ As part of their due diligence the Nets and Magic have exchanged medical information on Howard, who had back surgery, and Brook Lopez, who had foot surgery, sources said. Humphries agent, Dan Fegan, is still trying to convince Humphries to settle for a deal that will be guaranteed for just one year. Fegan also represents Howard. A couple of weeks ago, just before Orlando hired Rob Hennigan as its new general manager, Brooklyn offered a similar three-team trade proposal to the Cavs, sources said, only to be turned down by the Magic.”

    This would be very good for the Clips’ bench, to replace Mo Williams and Nick Young, they already have Jamal Crawford signed from Rip City, and he would blend w/ MarShon Brooks. And FINALLY the Dwightmare fiasco would end. PLEASE L.A.,Cleveland,Orlando and Brooklyn, get it DONE.

  • Sundance

    Clips got too many guards . Wouldn’t even need Brooks

  • phil da windmill

    Man all bullshid aside dwight needs to be the hometown hero and go to atlanta fuc k jay-z get off that camels dic k.

  • LA Huey

    They still have Bledsoe, don’t they? And already have Billups and Crawford in the mix.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Clippers go from having no two guards to having way too many.

  • anonymous

    cosign phil da windmill. stop slurping jay-z a** and go home to atlanta. a front court featuring dwight and jsmoove could be something special for years to come.

  • anonymous

    I hope humphries is smart and doesnt give into to fegan who has a clear conflict of interest in representing dwight and him.

  • Alan CHan

    OKC should trade Perk, Ibaka and Harden for Dwight and J-Rich NOW!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ash

    What a bad agent!! Kris Humpries should fire him. Nets taking on two bad contracts with Chris Duhon and Jason Richardson. Y can’t Nets wait until the trade deadline or end of season??

  • http://www.twitter.com/gerardhimself Gerard Himself

    Brooks is a great, great young guard. But yeah, too many guards for the Clippers

  • anonymous

    @ash I hope humphries fires him too. but bk cant wait until the end of next season because they cant afford to sign him as a free agent unless they unload jj or deron williams

  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Dwight will be gone before the season starts one way or another. Orlando not going through another season (or half season) of Dwight Drama. No way no how.

  • LA Huey

    There HAS to be money under the table to Humphries. Just makes no sense as to why he’d accept a one-year deal.

  • ruh


  • http://twitter.com/sooperfadeaway nbk

    Humphries won’t accept a 1 year deal. He’s looking for 4 years.

  • wet

    From what I’ve heard. Humprries has a different agent than dwight howard does these days.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Redd

    Send him off to the Rockets, I feel they’ll accept a 1 year contract in the hopes that he stays. Just do it, get picks for 2014+15 where the Rockets will then suck.

  • fruizm

    Looks like every team is willing to cheap (chip?) in just so this drama can come to an end!

  • Robb

    wtf does jay-z has to do with any of this? sounds like the females in your lives all love jigga, thats why your mad? damn

  • http://slamonline.com 19821982

    So basically the Clippers trading a pick for Brooks is how Dwight finally ends up in Brooklyn? That’s pretty funny…

  • Heals

    You could do alot worse than Bledsoe and Brooks as your starting back-court (I see you Cha, Phx) on a developing team…

  • briscoe larry

    when i first read this i was like what agent in his right mind would want to envourage his player to take a 1 year deal,in any case, but especially offf the season humphries just had. then i read further and it said Fegan also reps dwight howard. clear conflict of interest and unethical. Humphries needs to fire him for even suggesting some nonsense like that, and clearly not having his best intentions in mind.

  • phil da windmill

    Rob you need to shut up you like camel dic k too????? guess if frank ocean can come out the closet so can you huh???

  • MikeC.

    Please Orlando, just call his bluff and let him go as a free agent. I wish one of these teams would have the stones to say “You want to leave? Fine. We’re not taking the crap sandwich we’re being offered for you in a trade. You’re leaving as a free agent and you’re leaving huge piles of money behind. Stay and we’ll max you out, or leave and take less money. Gargle my executive nutz.”

  • Bernie

    Why the hell would okc trade for Dwight? That’s foolish

  • http://Juanm.garcia@comcast.net NYPlaya

    Sounds like the Clips will do whatever it takes to make sure the Lakers don’t get DH.

  • What Up

    So the Cavs get Kris Humphries, Quentin Richardson, Sundiata Gaines, a first round pick from the Nets and three million in cash for nothing. How does that work?

  • Bo Bice


  • esbe

    why would the magic want shelden williams and armon johnson instead of marshon brooks?

  • angus

    Why would clips add another guard to a backcourt that has cp3, Chauncey, nick young, crawford, and bledsoe.

  • http://www.slamonline.com/online/nba/2010/10/the-sad-case-of-adam-morrison/ vantot fresnedee

    nick young signed with the sixers, angus, but still you have a point.

  • http://whut Ugh

    This is the most complicated trade in history, surely.

  • L Dribble

    Bobcats now involved – Cavs and Clips possibly out. Bobcats would trade 1st round pick and get MBrooks.

  • mas

    At least everyone knows how the movie will end. Same way it ended in the Melodrama, same way that it ended for CP3 Escape to LA, the same way…well you get the point…The Dwightmare will end the same way. Superstar leaves team to go where he wants to go, when he wants to go.

  • WtsB13

    Brooks. Eb. And Mr big shoot off the bench championships

  • Keller

    yoo @L Dribble…where’d u hear bout the Bobcats now bein involved? that would make sense considering we have an abundance of picks and almost drafted Brooks in the Top-10 last year.

  • dsleepy

    @Ugh: this still isn’t as complicated as the jason kidd to dallas trade a few years back. they had to bring a RETIRED player out of retirement just to make that one happen.
