There were reports Tuesday that the Nets had presented the Magic with a simpler two-team deal to get things done after multiple attempts as a three or four team deal had collapsed, or never reached serious discussion, depending on who reported it. The Woj tweet did not say that either of the other two teams are out of it, just the Nets apparently are back in.
Simultaneously, Howard Beck reports, the Nets are talking with Brook Lopez who would be the key piece in any trade for Howard. Billy King is in Los Angeles, as are both Howard and Lopez.
