    This is true, but for that trade, I'd rather just let him walk in free agency than pay Lopez the type of money that he's going to get while adding non-lottery draft picks. It should be Andrew Bynum or bust for the Magic unless they get some other good trade offer.

    Bynum is as useless as Howard if he won't re-sign. Or even more useless, given the fact hes not half as valuable.

    Lopez with a max deal isn't worth it, but at 8-10 mil per over 4 yrs hes a tradable commodity and worth the investment. With the high salary floor that was set up teams have to spend the money on someone, so its not like they can empty the roster and go with a bunch of guys on rookie deals. Or they could, but those would become the richest rookie deals in history.

    It'll be interesting to see how it plays out. The Magic look like they've painted themselves into a corner but so did the Nuggets and Hornets and both teams got pretty good deals in the end.

    Lopez isn't getting just 8-10 million and that's the problem. He's not worth more than that. The Magic would be better off letting Dwight walk, save the cap room, and start from scratch.

    Lopez isn't getting the max. Two years ago he was, but not now.

    They're going to have cap room whether they bring in a guy like Lopez or not. Now that Anderson is gone the team has no rookie contract players that will demand a sizeable extension and very little in the way of guaranteed salaries after next year. The only real nasty contract is Richardson's, which I'm assuming is going to be included in any deal.

    I still think another team will come into the picture, probably the Rockets, Warriors, Pistons, Kings.....some team that's just desperate to be relevant again, even if its only for one year.

    Magic and Nets say trade talks are suspended......all the potential sign and trade options are about to disappear and Lopez will get a new deal with the Nets. A team with oodles of cap space could still jump in but I'd guess they'll put everything off until the season starts and all these new contracts are tradable.

    Not getting the max eh. Told you. If Hibbert is getting the max, Lopez would too. Pays great to be a decent Center in today's NBA. These dudes are getting overpaid out the ass. Looks like Dwight Howard to the Nets is officially dead. Well this year at least. I suppose they could still land him after Jan. 15th or a sign and trade next offseason, but I very highly doubt it. I've suspected all along he'll be a Laker, and it looks even more likely now.

    The Magic win as far as I'm concerned. The return was laughable at best. Brook Lopez with a max contract was more of a negative return than it was a positive, not to mention mediocre draft picks aren't very valuable either.
