If you knew sh*t about my state you would understand that's not really possible. A lot of LA fans don't support teams from the state. Go to any sports bar in LA and you will see quiet a few different teams being represented.

But I can't support SF/SD because of baseball. I talk sh*t about those piece of sh*t cities year long. I was kind of a Rams fan as a little little kid, then they left and I can't support that. Same goes for the Raiders.

So who was I supposed to support? . The only closer team would be the Cardinals, but they were never on tv .

You'd rather have the Rockets scraps?????
Yeah. Tht would give them good low first round draft picks (Toronto pick an their own) along with some young talent. They'd she'd salary (J rich). Orlando already has enough cap to go after two max contracts next off season.

Lopez signing would keep us in mediocrity like the hawks, sixers, etc.

Yea Lopez isn't a franchise player, so I don't see the point of really wanting him. Bynum could be worth it to rebuild around, but Lopez for sure isn't. So you might as well get pics instead of someone who's just going to put the franchise in a bad spot for the next 5 years.

The only reason I can see Orlando taking the nets offer would be to shed as much salary as pissible to they can sell the team. Owner is too old for an rebuild.

Lol. If you think Lopez with a Max contract is a center piece to a team then you have no place in a basketball discussion.

The Orlando Magic have intensified discussions about trading Dwight Howard, and the Brooklyn Nets are rapidly overtaking the Los Angeles Lakers as the strongest contender to land the disenchanted All-Star center, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Dwight Howard has listed only one team as his desired trade destination: the Brooklyn Nets. (AP)
Despite Orlando’s desire to make Lakers center Andrew Bynum the centerpiece of a trade package, a significant stumbling block remains in Bynum’s reluctance to commit to a long-term contract if he's traded to the Magic, sources said. Orlando doesn’t want to face the possibility of trading for Bynum only to lose him to free agency after the upcoming season.

The appeal of the Lakers' potential package for Bynum has also been diminished with Los Angeles sending its 2013 and 2015 first-round draft picks to the Phoenix Suns in the Steve Nash sign-and-trade deal. The NBA doesn’t allow teams to trade first-round picks in consecutive years, so the Lakers can’t offer Orlando their 2014 and 2016 first-round picks.

The Magic are portraying patience in making a deal for Howard, but have a strong distaste for engaging in a prolonged process that drags into the summer. From new general manager Rob Hennigan through Orlando ownership, the Magic want to find the best possible deal for Howard soon and cut ties with him, sources said.

As Orlando sorts through the offers, Howard's potential destination is increasingly looking like the Nets, sources said.

Bynum, 24, has one year left on his Lakers’ contract and has a short list of potential teams with salary-cap space and supporting cast that primarily include the Dallas Mavericks and

Houston Rockets with the Cleveland Cavaliers and a "couple others" on the list, league sources said. If Bynum remains with the Lakers past the Howard derby, he’ll have strong incentive to accept a maximum contract extension to stay in L.A., sources said. Otherwise, he has expressed a desire to test the free-agent market.

As much as Hennigan prefers to send Howard to a Western Conference team, the Magic keep coming back to the Nets as the best, safest package. Howard’s preferred trade partner – Brooklyn – has pushed into overdrive in offering up trade scenarios and options for the Magic, sources said. For now, Orlando prefers Nets restricted free-agent center Brook Lopez as a centerpiece player over having its pick of the Houston Rockets' roster, sources said.

The Nets started extension discussions with Lopez over the weekend, preparing for the possibility he could stay with them on a five-year deal or be moved to the Magic in a four-year contract as part of a sign-and-trade package for Howard. Lopez has been seeking a maximum contract extension --- five years for $75 million --- from Brooklyn, but the two sides are still negotiating a number. If Lopez is sent to the Magic in a sign-and-trade, the most he could get is $58 million over four years.

There have been three-team scenarios discussed where Orlando gets Lopez, and others where he could go elsewhere and the Magic would be compensated with as many as four future first-round draft picks, sources said. Nevertheless, the Magic are likely to take Lopez for themselves should they trade Howard to the Nets.

Hennigan has been consistent in pushing teams to offer him multiple first-round picks, as
well as be able to absorb one of the Magic’s high-priced veteran contracts, including Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson, sources said.

Brooklyn has been searching for a third team willing to take free-agent forward Kris Humphries in a sign-and-trade deal. One team with salary-cap space – the Cleveland

Cavaliers – would be willing to take Humphries on a potential one-year, $8 million or $9 million contract with no small condition: The Cavaliers would have to be compensated with at least one first-round draft pick, sources said. The Cavaliers have no interest in Humphries, one of the league’s best rebounders, as they rebuild their roster with young talent, and would add him exclusively as a means to stockpile even more draft picks over the next few years.

Orlando further signaled its desire to start a complete rebuilding process when it sent restricted free-agent forward Ryan Anderson to the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday in a sign-and-trade deal. Anderson would’ve signed an offer sheet with the Hornets for $36 million over four years, and the Magic decided that was too steep a price to match. They Magic acquired backup center Gustavo Ayon in the sign-and-trade deal.

this is all so funny to me. The deal won't happen and doesn't even have legs. All these rumors are being pushed by fegan and the nets. Billy king isn't even in his office. Dude flew to vegas to see dwill today. There was no morning meeting between magic brass to take a deal. Our gm and a.sst gm's are at the damn summer league games

And the magic have no use for lopez and his brother already said he has no desire to go to orlando.

As for humphries there is no reason for the cavs to sign him. If they wanted him they have the cap to sign him outright!

I can't wait to get my laugh on.
