The Brooklyn Nets and Atlanta Hawks have agreed in principle to a trade that will send Joe Johnson to Brooklyn for a few spare parts and a lottery-protected draft pick. The Nets are also expected to re-sign Deron Williams soon.
What this means financially is that Dwight Howard will not be moving to Brooklyn just a week after Howard finally, publicly admitted that he wanted Orlando to trade him there.
So Dwight blew it and all because he was too scared?/confused?/hopeless? to ask for the one thing that every 21-year old kid with a trust fund in America tells his or her parents after graduation: “Thanks for the money. I want to move to Brooklyn.”
