Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld took to Twitter tonight to offer thoughts on various questions about the NBA. Here are some of the highlights:
- He thinks that Dwight Howard will remain with the Lakers beyond this summer.
- The Lakers could possibly deal Pau Gasol in the offseason for smaller pieces, similar to what the Grizzlies did with Rudy Gay.
- On the subject of Monta Ellis opting in, Kyler notes that there could be a lucrative market for him in free agency this summer too.
- Doug Collins' coaching days in Philadelphia would seem to be numbered by now.
- Gilbert Arenas or Tracy McGrady probably won't sign anywhere this season, for the same reasons why they haven't been able to get anything done since the beginning of the year. He also doubts that Allen Iverson will get another opportunity in the NBA.
- It wouldn't be surprise if the Trail Blazers targeted Josh Smith, but re-tooling the bench appears to be the bigger need.
- Jerry Sloan would have to be in the right situation to consider returning, but it isn't likely that he'll find it.
