Cavs Are Out Of The Deal

Adrian Wojnarowski and Ken Berger each tweeted Tuesday afternoon that the Cavaliers are out of the Dwight Howard talks. Berger followed up to report that the Bobcats are also "out of the mix."

Wojnarowski goes on to say that the Nets and Magic might need to work out a simpler, two-team trade if something is going to happen. If that doesn't work out, the Nets are still talking to Brook Lopez about a new contract.

Cleveland is out as a third-team trade partner in a possible Orlando-Brooklyn deal for Dwight Howard, sources tell Y! Sports. If Brooklyn and Orlando are to make a deal for Howard in near-term, it will likely be a trade between the two teams, sources tell Y! Sports. The Nets have been negotiating an extension with Brook Lopez and could ultimately complete the deal in the next 48 hours, sources say.

How the Magic would fulfill its desire to come away with salary cap relief in a two-team deal remains uncertain. The Nets currently don't have enough assets to take on additional salary from the Magic. The Nets do have all their first round picks through 2018 but can only trade picks in alternate years, meaning 2013, 2015 and 2017.
