Rumor: Nets Would Trade #1 Lottery Pick Anthony Davis for Dwight Howard
Rumor: If the Brooklyn Nets land the #1 lottery pick, Deron Williams is pressuring them to trade for Dwight Howard.
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The kid’s got beef before he’s even in the league.
Sources say that Deron Williams has told the Brooklyn Nets that if they want to keep him they need to get competitive now, not later. These means waiting for likely #1 lottery pick Anthony Davis to develop is not going to make Williams happy.
It is no guarantee Brooklyn will get the #1 pick, but they do have a 7.5% chance of landing the #1 pick. Davis is largely regarded as one of the best talents to come into the league in the last 10 years. Teams are literally salivating over the impact he can have on their teams. Yet, the reality in Brooklyn is the Nets are more than 1 or 2 players away from a run at the Eastern Conference Finals.
