Maybe this is Morey's strategy

Random thought to myself... We package a whole bunch of assets to land dwight howard within the next week (keeping a few like our 2012 draft picks). We absorb the contract of turkoglu and jason richardson to make the deal better than anything the Nets/Lakers can offer. Dwight is forced to play here even though he doesnt want to be here and insists on being dealt to the nets. Then after the season, if he's still serious about leaving, we can trade him to Nets.

We ship Richardson's contract with Howard so the Nets have to deal with 6 mill a year for a backup sg. We pick up Brook Lopez, our draft pick from the T-will trade, additional draft picks from the Nets, and anything else we want to drain their palette of assets. Our lineup would look something like:

Shaun Livingston

Marshon Brooks/Jeremy Lamb

Turkloglu's large expiring contract/White/Parsons

Patterson/ another undersized 4/et cetera/ and so on/ and so forth


With this plan, we still have lots of cap space for da summer of chris paul, a large expiring contract to put into a deal to bail out a tax paying team (to get Bosh or Bynum as off the top of my head examples), draft picks, a year of dwight howard (complete with Rox trade rumors dominating headlines), and a playoff run.

Note: point guards are a dime a dozen in my opinion. I wouldnt be too hung up on daryl morey not being able to find a Livingston replacement after we get Howard.

Note: I'm assuming in the Howard deal, we give up more future assets than current. Example: Howard, turkoglu, and richardson for Scola, Montiejunas, kevin martin, marcus morris, 2014 1st round pick, 2016 1st round pick, Dallas' 1st round pick (acquired from Lakers), and Toronto's guaranteed lotto pick (lowry trade).

Question is: Is it worth it for a year of Howard? Do you even like Lopez? Would you want Bynum and Laker's assets instead? Did I come up with a ridiculous and convoluted idea and i should just typing fanposts for awhile?

My answers are Yes, No, Yes, and Probably
