    When is 26 too old now a days? Players like Garnett, Nash, Pierce, Allen, etc are still doing pretty well in their mid 30's. Howard looks like he keeps himself in excellent condition. He's missed a total of 7 games in 7 years! Sure he gets abused in the paint, but even Shaq was dominant in his 30's.

    Howard is the cream of the crop. By far the best big man in the league. If the Raptors even have a chance at him you go for it. I'd give up Derozan, Amir and JV in a trade for him in a flash.

    The downside is if Orlando is going to give up Howard, they will also be giving you Turk or Arenas. No way in hell is Turk coming back. So we would be stuck with Arenas for a few years as well which would be a huge burden.

    Plus this is never going to happen.

    Im not being condescending and this is a legit question, why not Derozan? Kobe and Gasol i think played pretty good.

    But isnt Howard too old to be the main part of a rebuild?

    hahaha yeah. they better name more than burgers and convince the guy to stay as much as they can.
    but on the flipside, maybe its howard who's getting those two off their game....and im saying maybe.
    I would think the team would want to take a 'orlando' like approach and make sure everyone on the floor can hit a 3 as to make it harder for Dwight to be doubled and punish anyone who tries to double team dwight.

    It has nothing to do with Derozan so much as it has alot to do with what Derozan can't do.

    I don't know who could put together a package to take both Howard and Arenas. Together they total more then $37million in 2012/2013. In order for us to put together a package to acquire those two, it would require something along the lines of the following:

    - Bargnani ($9.25mil)
    - Calderon ($9.78mil)
    - DeRozan ($2.63mil)
    - A. Johnson ($5.55mil)
    - Valanciunas ($3.48mil)

    The only way we could put together a package for this two, would be to include both Bargnani and Calderon, which would weaken any package we have.

    But, this would be a similar problem that any team in the league would have. The only team I could think of who could pull off this type of trade would be Sacramento due to their salary space. Sacramento could pull off the trade with a package of (Cousins, Evans, Hickson, and Jimmer). But would Sacramento make such a move to give up their entire core to take on Howard and the albatross contract of Arenas.

    Nobody mentioned the part where he said he cries on the bench with a towel over his head. Other players that have been around these parts have been torn apart for the assumption they cry in the dressing room. Do you guys really want a crier on this team?

    I sure don't!
