Brian Schmitz, the Orlando Sentinel columnist, has long been an advocate of trading Dwight Howard...like yesterday. He had until the last couple of days written negatively about the prospect of the Magic obtaining Brook Lopez in exchange for Howard. Now, in tweets and a column, he's reconsidering.
"Better to take Lopez and other players/picks from the Nets than to let Howard walk free," he writes Thursday morning. "Andrew Bynum is the better player, but Bynum plays for the Lakers – and Howard isn’t keen on committing to L.A. No way the Lakers will deal Bynum on the chance that Howard might re-sign."
