Would anyone trade for Dwight Howard and/or Chris Paul without a guarantee that he’d remain beyond this season?
Quite obviously, as documented in this morning’s post about all the trade scenarios that are out there, the Golden State Warriors are one such team, as are the Boston Celtics.

I went on the Petros and Money show on 570 Fox Sports Radio in Los Angeles to discuss, among other things, the Clippers’ chances of pulling off one of the two monster trades that will have an enormous domino effect on the free agency market if consummated by the end of the week, when training camps open.
