Just wondering, has there been any word in houston about what the rockets are actually offering for dwight?
I mean i know what all us Magic fans WANT, but havent heard anything about what a likely deal would look like
The Houston Rockets are doing everything possible to land Dwight Howard and that includes opening up a lot of salary cap room by waiving Luis Scola via the amnesty rule, reports ESPN.com's Marc Stein and Chad Ford.
According to Stein and Ford, the Rockets will have enough room to take on a combination of Orlando's bad contracts -- Hedo Turkoglu, Jason Richardson, Glen Davis and Chris Duhon -- and they will send them a bunch of young players and future draft picks.
As far as the players Orlando would get, Stein and Ford write: "Sources say that the Rockets would have to send Kevin Martin, Patrick Patterson, Marcus Morris and Chandler Parsons to the Magic from their current roster to make the salary-cap math work, as well the draft rights to Jeremy Lamb, Royce White and Terrence Jones.
The Rockets would also waive Shaun Livingston, Courtney Fortson, Josh Harrellson, Jerome Jordan, Jon Leuer, Diamon Simpson and Greg Smith as none of them have guaranteed contracts.
The Magic reportedly won't consider any Howard trade until next week.
I like this deal for the Magic. I think it's the best we can do?
