Tom Haberstroh's ridiculous Dwight Howard trade proposal

27

By Tom Haberstroh | ESPN Insider Los Angeles Clippers The deal: Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Mo Williams, Ryan Gomes and Eric Bledsoe to Orlando for Dwight Howard Hedo Turkoglu and J.J. Redick. Now, this would be the real Lob City. And this would also infuriate their co-habitants of Staples Center, the Los Angeles Lakers. If Clippers decision-maker Neil Olshey could somehow turn Blake Griffin and Eric Gordon into Chris Paul and Dwight Howard, the executive of the year trophy should just be a bronze mini-sculpture of Olshey grinning on the phone. It would also be quite a haul for the Magic. They get one of the top young big men in the league in Griffin, their point guard of the future in Bledsoe and some veteran pieces to fill out a playoff roster. Of course, this creates a glut at point guard, which could have been alleviated by the Magic using the amnesty provision on Jameer Nelson, but that already pushed that button on Gilbert Arenas.
