Mavs to ‘Do Something Big’ for Howard?
If the Dallas Mavericks aren’t able to sign Deron Williams, maybe they can convince the Orlando Magic to send center Dwight Howard their way.
According to an NBA source, Howard would be the perfect consolation prize for the Mavs if they can’t get Williams to return home and play for Dallas.
The source noted that the Mavs could send the Magic some combination of the expiring contracts of Rodrigue Beaubois, Vince Carter, Dominique Jones and Brandan Wright, and rookies Jared Cunningham, Bernard James and Jae Crowder, plus draft picks and involve Ian Mahinmi in a sign-and-trade for Howard.
“If we could do that, then we’ve made a big splash,” the source said. “Because we’ve got to do something big.”
