Details Emerge in Nets Offer for D-12

Calling talks between the Nets and Magic "ongoing" but not imminent, Marc Stein and Chad Ford report the "most active" proposal that the Nets and Magic are engaged in would send Gerald Wallace from the Trail Blazers to Orlando with Brook Lopez. In addition to Dwight Howard and Hedo Turkoglu, the Nets would also take on the contract of Chris Duhon from Orlando.

"Other players would have to be added to the deal to make the salary-cap math work" Stein and Ford write, "but sources said Portland would receive multiple first-round picks as part of the exchange for surrendering Wallace and facilitating the trade." Adrian Wojnarowski tweets the Blazers would get "as many as three draft picks", but did not specify from where or whether they would all be first round picks.

The Magic have NOT signed off on any deal, ESPN notes. "Yet it remains to be seen if the Brooklyn-bound Nets can convince the Magic to indeed go through with trading Howard before the season starts." As David Aldridge notes in his own tweet, "Still a longshot D12 goes 2 NJ before start of the season, but nobody's better at putting together multiple multi-team deals than Billy King." To which Sam Amick adds, "Or D12's agent, Dan Fegan."

And in what could be another indicator of something, Mark Cuban told a Magic beat writer he does not believe Howard will wind up in Dallas.
