WE MUST TRADE LOPEZ FOR JOSH SMITH ASAP...

there are many reasons why this trade seals the deal with dwight coming in free agency... this will force the magic to either keep, or "rent" dwight to a team.... regardless, he is coming to Brooklyn through FA and here are some compelling reasons why:

(lets start with the obvious)

1. Dwight Howard wants Brooklyn more then anywhere else

2. Dwight wants to play with D-will

3. Dwight knows that although Brooklyn may not be able t give him the most 'basketball' money possible, he knows his "400 million dollar" endorsment will make up for this

4.Dwight wants to be a global presence, and we have a global owner who is worth over 10 billion dollars

5. Josh Smith is Dwights childhood friend, they played on the same AAU basketball team, they have known eachother forever

6. they have expressed that they want to play with eachother

7. we would retain other assets, such as, 2 draft picks, marshon brooks, and a ton of expiring contracts, we could then use these assets to facilitate another trade in the future, or we can keep them (brooks, picks)

8. with d-will, josh smith, marshon brooks, 2 draft picks next season, and HUMP... dwight will 100% be chomping at the bit to join this team, he will do so the first day he can (july 1st i believe)

TRANSLATION: if we trade lopez for smith, we get dwight.... and for those of you who think ATL wouldnt make that trade, Al horford has been DYING for a true center so he could play the PF position, where he is most effective, and smith is leaving when his contract is up after next season, (He just demanded a trade)
