That he has the power to help us become a potential dynasty overnight if he makes it to free agency?
As much as I want Dwight on the Nets this season, there really isn't much point from a Nets perspective. Yes, it secures his spot on the team, but a NY Knicks-type cost. For this season, we may be too far out of the playoffs by the time he is traded here as we would be challenged by a lack of time, chemistry and depth. For future seasons we may be crippled by a lack of assets and cap flexibility to improve enough to be a true contender.
However, if Dwight and his agent simply inform the Nets not to make an offer for him (because he is going to opt out regardless of what team he is on at the end of the season), then we have the ability to start the Brooklyn era with a dynasty. Orlando still would have the ability to trade Dwight wherever they want/can (as they could now), but any team would have to look at the trade as a rental of Dwight, or at the very least a non-committal Dwight.
We all know what the line-up could look like if we aren't forced to trade for Dwight and signs with us outright:
Deron W. / MIA #2
Brooks / Morrow
2012 #1 / Shawne W.
Lopez / Jordan W.
Howard / Petro
With a mini-MLE and potentially Bogdanovic, the Houston #1 and resigned vets like Gaines, Bogans and Shelden Williams added to the mix.
We would be an instant contender and one of the top 4 teams in the league along with OKC, Miami and Chicago.
Dwight, surely must know this, right?
