The four-team trade that would send Dwight Howard to Brooklyn is currently “in Shakytown,” ESPN’s Ric Bucher just said on Sportscenter.That is, from the sound of it, not a good place to be.
The stinking point: The two “other” teams in the deal — Cleveland and the Clippers — know that Orlando and Brooklyn are desperate to get this done, so they’re trying to bleed them dry and get every ounce of value for their participation in the blockbuster.
As was reported yesterday, there’s a issue with Kris Humphries — who wants a long-term deal rather than the one-year contract that Cleveland wants to give him.
According to Bucher, things are shaky right now, and the clock is ticking. If the trade isn’t done by July 12, cap room goes away and the dream of Dwight in Brooklyn disappears.
