Even if they get Dwight are they even a top 4 team in the West? Lakers, Spurs, Thunder would be better for sure. Maybe the Clips and Grizzles too. Even in their best case scenario the Rockets wouldn't be a title contender with any deal they make with the Magic. And lets not even talk about what would be their inability to re-sign him this summer.
I dont think they are all about winning it all THIS YEAR, Im guessing they are thinking that if they get him, and clear enough cap space, they can convince him to stay by signing another max player next year like Josh Smith or CP3, or hell if they include Martin in a trade with us, they could cut hedo next year and probably find a trade partner for JRich (reasonable contract) and try to get BOTH to team with dwight
I know i know, thats alot of "What Ifs" but Doubt he would want to leave in that scenario
