In return, the Raptors get Steve Novak, Marcus Camby, Quentin Richardson, and a 2016 first-round pick, and two second-round picks.
And it’s not just the rec-league basketball things like “losing the basketball with nobody around you” either. Here’s a simple play where Bargnani should have simply pulled up and hit an easy mid-range jumper, but instead, decides to drive — and gets called for the charge.
Do the Knicks really need another shooter who doesn’t play defense? Assuming that they can sign J.R. Smith, can Carmelo, Smith, and Bargnani all co-exist? Can the Knicks play even mediocre defense with Carmelo, Smith, and Bargnani all on the floor at once?
I'M IN!!! #CLIPPERNATION

Even if Dwight indicated desire to play in Bay, Lakers may still balk at sign-and-trade. Source says LA has demonstrated no appetite for it.

Here are just some of the Dwight Howard rumors:
Apparently, when the Houston Rockets met with Dwight Howard, they threw Hakeem, Yao, James Harden, and Chandler Parsons at him. The Rockets’ main message: you can be a huge part of this team, and you can win right now if you join the Houston Rockets.
