Howard to Blame for Failed Nets Trade?

The man to blame is the man in Dwight Howard’s mirror. He would’ve been a Net at the trade deadline, or this week during free agency, had he not agreed in March to opt-in for one more season in Orlando, a move that never made any sense for someone who so desperately wanted to leave the Magic.
A move that ultimately cost Howard his dream pairing with (Deron) Williams in Brooklyn.
The moment the megastar center agreed to surrender his freedom was the moment he empowered Magic management to do what it did today: Effectively tell the Nets to sign (Brook) Lopez and get lost, at least until the winter, and remind Howard that a high-profile, high-salaried employee remains, you know, an employee.
