[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Oh oh!! : David Aldridge is a very well respected NBA journalist. Houston bumped up their offer after this when Cleveland got involved. The Rockets, according to a league source briefed on the discussions, are willing to take one bad contract back from the Magic, not two or three, as has been speculated. And in return, Houston will give up one of the their three first-round picks in last month’s Draft– Jeremy Lamb, Royce White or Terrence Jones –but only one. The Rockets would be willing to send a future draft pick to Orlando –presumably the Lottery-protected first-rounder Houston received this week from Toronto for guard Kyle Lowry — and send a veteran player to the Magic, helping Orlando clear $10 to $15 million worth of cap room, in exchange for the six-time All-Star and three-time Defensive Player of the Year. Orlando has several high-priced contracts it would like to clear if it opts to trade Howard, including forward Hedo Turkoglu (two years, $23.4 million remaining, though the last year of the deal is not fully guaranteed) and guards Jason Richardson (three years, $18.6 million) and Chris Duhon (two years, $7.2 million). http://hangtime.blogs.nba.com/2012/07/13/dwight-update-not-close-to-a-trade-with-rockets/

I read this twice - don't see the lakers mentioned at all. So, I agree - HOU wants DH for themselves. That is a well-known fact. This doesn't mention Bynum at all. YES, I agree with you, this would be a good trade for HOU AND ORL to pull off!!
Nice chatting with you, Gina!!
Also no mention AT ALL of Kevin Martin. I think you make this stuff up as you go along. Like Beasley going to the lakers at the deadline and Ramon Sessions EASILY averaging 13 points and 10 assists for the lakers.
Is your brother's name Mark???? From CT?????
