According to ESPN.com:from
The Nets, in other words, would have to be all the way out of the Howard Sweepstakes before abandoning their plans, having sacrificed so much last February (Derrick Favors, Devin Harris and two first-round picks) just to get D-Will.
If Howard is traded to the Lakers before the deadline, sources say New Jersey would then be forced to explore its D-Will trade options, knowing that Williams would be a virtual lock to leave come July. If Orlando keeps Howard or deals him anywhere else but L.A. or Dallas before the deadline, thus keeping alive its dream of pairing the two in Brooklyn next fall, New Jersey will wait.
DWill has one year left on his contract.
A sign and trade of Bargnani and Calderon for DWill would work money wise. Get the Nets to throw in their 2012 1st round draft pick unprotected and I would do this trade in a heart beat.
Two lottery picks in June. The picks could be dealt if needed to get Harrison Barnes or MKG.
