Dwight Howard Wants to be Traded to the Nets

The Nets' best trade bait -- Brook Lopez, whose similarity scores are as follows:

Brook Lopez 7.9 6.3 5.8
Marc Gasol 87.8 8.4 7.9 6.4
Bob Rule 82.8 7.8 6.4 5.2 2.4 0.5 0.3 0.1 0.0
Don Otten 82.5 8.5 5.8 4.9 1.7
Gheorghe Muresan 78.8 8.0 5.3 4.1 1.3 0.3 -0.1
George Ratkovicz 77.1 9.3 6.0 5.2 2.8 -0.1
Joakim Noah 76.4 6.7 6.4 6.2 3.8
Mike Lewis 67.3 7.9 7.5 4.0 3.8 1.1 0.0
Andris Biedrins 66.9 8.0 6.7 5.4 2.9 2.6 1.6 1.2
Jamaal Magloire 66.0 7.6 6.7 5.7 2.6 2.0 1.3 1.1 0.6 0.6 0.3 -0.6
Ralph Sampson 65.9 6.2 6.0 5.0 2.2 1.1 0.6 -0.2 -0.3 -0.6

So, yeah, not exactly getting value for Dwight Howard.


Lopez at over 7 feet tall averaged 6 rebounds a game while playing 35 minutes a game last year. Of 7" players who have averaged 30 mpg in a season, there are only 5 guys who have ever failed to get at least 6.3 rebounds a game -- http://bkref.com/tiny/b52cr
We should call it the "Andrea Bargnani Stat" because he has done it 3 times!
