The Nets increasingly look like Dwight Howard's preferred landing spot, either now or in July. The Lakers seem out of it and the Mavericks seem ready to wait for free agency to land Deron Williams and Howard (reportedly in that order). Howard's agent is reportedly telling other teams to fuggedaboutit. He won't sign an extension with them.
So would a franchise be willing to send the Magic a ton of assets in hopes of convincing Howard to stay beyond the end of regular season or the playoffs? Otis Smith says "six to eight" teams are still calling him to try to acquire or "rent" Dwight Howard, according to Brian Schmitz's latest tweet. Schmitz decides to try his hand at which teams would be willing to "Rent-a-Dwight", even listing the assets Orlando would accept.
