Bulls banter on CTL
Mon, 30 Jan 2012|
Mark Schanowski joins the Chicago Tribune Live panel to discuss the possibility of the Bulls adding Dwight Howard via trade - 1/30
In the newsroom earlier today were -- Dwight Howard. Can you say when they start to invoke. Love god has a plan. It's either they're extremely religious war as you put it they don't answer the question I don't wanna answer because they're not coming. You know expect the Bulls to be actively involved to get this guy. No I don't think they'll be actively involved at all we're just talking about. Before we started segment -- that Vaughn McClure was down. In New Orleans and was able to get why Howard to open up about a topic he's previously not address is very interest in but as we mentioned. Sometimes when someone uses the you know invokes god. But you really tell the reporters I have no intention of answering your question -- and I think that was part of what -- got but we followed up and said that he did do you this issue wouldn't be a problem. Well now we're getting some information in the fact that he's a guy that's cool with us. I think god it's OK with that as long as it feels all right I'm area and it appears put -- -- -- that if I could play with -- right now god one had that happen it will happen. It has nothing to do with me now why you play would Derrick Rose I love and that's my brother. There's nothing to do with the. The other thing is if you look at the Sunday Paper and see where that -- was placed you guys -- -- -- I know if one really thought he had some great information on page news that maybe that's a banner headline Howard says he would accept the trade of Bulls and you know as he did not address the issue whether he would sign me operated so it's about the trade it state -- it right it's the no he would he's kind of -- term extension well with your entry for assets for it with -- team has a chance to win a championship. To bring in Dwight Howard for two and a half we have a Comcast sports that exclusive this is Dwight Howard's list that he's provided just us all matters is what useless. Think that the themselves but -- yet may be glory the -- draw that up and yes I'm a -- us through this crayons that is that's the but while -- but -- -- -- -- Dwight -- -- so frustrated with the situation in Orlando -- Atlanta has the same questions over and over again. If you catch him in the right mood you'll see that go anyway no Orlando's motivated to move him so they get something in return right. They wanted to keep him through the all star game which is in Orlando this year February 26 they don't seem coming back -- -- the team's uniform so essentially it's a dead issue for another month the trade deadline is march 15. They're gonna have to take a hard look at march 15 and go. Do we have any chance to bring him back if not they will strike the best deal with so let's hear what the heroes at stake today about his body Dwight Howard. Me and the way definitely. Has -- especially because will be this. I'm though I'm aggressiveness be the the why he's a great player. Who wouldn't want. No no was. Pick him right so we just heard Derek throughout the year the expert on the salary cap and all things don't work around it if Dwight Howard. Finally came out a truly sad right okay Orlando my first choice to Chicago on player of my brother Derrick Rose knew what was the Bulls have to give up to make this work. Well if you're gonna get Dwight Howard you have to take Hedo Turkoglu -- that's a terrible contract that they agreed to they want a package. Those two guys together and -- -- -- -- with this Joakim Noah Luke Walton and the rights to -- Mirotic the young European power for -- like and the Charlotte future number one which keeps getting better as the years go by that can be an unprotected top five pick in a couple of years so from Orlando's perspective. If you include the rights to Mirotic and the pick. They'd be pretty excited about. I just don't know if we're using -- I would yes but the thing the other issue that's involved in this is because of all things wrist injury I was a pass a physical -- go to -- less. Why would Orlando take -- an injured player. Plus law might decide if he gets traded I'm have the surgery. You know I'm not gonna play it right is on there was no chance what you Graham on a bad team like it when I just think because of all the different circumstances involved it's a non starter I think if -- flew all thing. What's healthy and if Howard came -- that I would sign an extension Chicago I think this could heat up real quick there and and the Bulls love their current team. I mean isn't that a big part of this would suit even though Lewis had Arnie and super do you need to superstars -- in. Look at look at the game between the heat know. In the Bulls. Yesterday and I know they played close without a lot of -- of a spoiler yeah me and while Miami has three of the top forty players and believe the Bulls have won it's it's always it's not a fair fight when those two teams play. In a best of seven series Miami's three all stars are one. You know I think it's going to be tough sledding when you. Go through the top players in the NBA I would argue that Dwight Howard and Derrick Rose are two of the top four players in the league right now I got a way to write out five guys. To me it wave games. That's not outweigh the question about it but it's Dwight Howard. It's Rose. It's LeBron. It's Kevin Durant -- of Kobe Bryant. And those those are my top five if you get if you -- a chance to get Dwight Howard. That creates a scenario against Miami they can't deal with size and interior you the most powerful inside player in the game. I think you have to do it but because of the injury to Daniel never happen. -- Interest -- a few that that's all right with it. Looking at tonight's game from the Wizards are bad basketball team. By the way Lakers reportedly interest in Gilbert Arenas know -- -- get that. Well you know I think reality started coming on that because him and Kobe Bryant the same that court Jack and bad shots as -- gonna happen now they're they're looking at that a lesser goal of trying to get remind sessions from the Cleveland Cavaliers to -- -- point -- minutes. A lot of guys in that locker were a little bit leery about bringing another guy who got up you know -- personality is gonna won a lot of shot attempts I don't think Gilbert Arenas going to the Lakers it's.
