Best Trade Scenario For Dwight Howard.

I think Billy King should consider calling up his good friend Kevin O'Connor (Utah Jazz's GM) and pitch this trade to him to help the Nets acquire Dwight Howard from Orlando.

Why would this trade work?

For Utah: Utah gets the chance to shed some salary off their books while simultaneously cleaning up their PF/C heavy roster. It's been known that Utah has been wanting to trade both Paul Milsap and Al Jefferson. Without question, Brook Lopez would give them a young star at the center position. It also gives them the flexibility to help develop their young power forward stars which include Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter. Also, throwing in MarShon Brooks would give them another incentive to pull the trigger since he is another young talent to help with their rebuilding process.

For Orlando: Orlando gets a young 26 year old power forward in Paul Milsap and young 26 year old potential all-star center in Al Jefferson which keeps them competitive. This is arguably similar to the Laker's potential offer of Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol (http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=6wxlv7f).

For Brooklyn: Brooklyn gets Dwight Howard. Dwight + D-Will + Free Agent Signings in Summer 2012 = Instant contender.

Obviously, other small details may need to be worked out to make the trade work (i.e. draft picks, cash considerations, absorbing Hedo Turkoglu/Chris Duhon's contract) but I think that the basic structure of this offer is feasible and a win-win for all teams involved. Most importantly, I think it's one of the few trade scenarios that would be able to compete with a potential Bynum/Gasol offer.

What do you guys think? Should Billy make the call?
