Wojnarowski: Nets Or Mavericks For Dwight Howard

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, one of the most well-connected and knowledgeable NBA writers in the business, said Thursday he believes Orlando Magic superstar center Dwight Howard will wind up with either the Brooklyn Nets or Dallas Mavericks next season.

"There's really two scenarios for him in free agency," Wojnarowski told WEEI Radio. "One is going to Brooklyn with Deron Williams and the other is going to be Dallas."

Wojnarowski offered a scenario that would be a nightmare for Nets fans. He stated that the Mavericks would like to unload the contract of forward Shawn Marion, then use the cap space to pursue BOTH Howard and Williams as free agents during the offseason.

"If they can get rid of Shawn Marion Dallas is in the game for both those guys," Wojnarowski said.

The Nets, of course, have been hoping to add another marquee player to add to Williams as they move to Brooklyn next season. The most likely target at this point has been Howard. Losing out on Howard, then watching Williams follow him to the Mavericks, would be devastating for the franchise as it tries to get a fresh start in Brooklyn.
