Ok, so this one is a stretch even in the preposterous trade proposals article but here we go. The Magic absolutely can not allow Howard to walk away and get nothing in return so they will be bombarded with offers for the best big man in the game. Outside of throwing your roster at the Magic and saying "You can have whatever you want!" the Rockets have to put together some sort of an offer. The most reasonable offer they can come up with might be Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, Patrick Patterson, Marcus Morris, a first round pick and maybe Dontas Montiejunas. It is hard to believe that the Magic wouldn't be able to get a more compact offer with more high end talent but you can't win if you don't enter into the sweepstakes.
Your Houston Rockets starting five: Kyle Lowry, Courtney Lee, Chase Budinger, Chuck Hayes, Dwight Howard.
