    Just got off a call:

    Dwight is not happy with how the Lakers have treated him and how the Lakers have constantly backed D'Antoni.

    The Rockets have been doing a hell of a job to get him here. Harden has been calling/texting. During all star he spent a lot of time with Hakeem and Hakeem did the BEST sales pitch ever. He got him with McHale and they hit it off.

    Dwight doesn't see a big deal in the extra year with the Lakers and states that everyone opts out of that 5th year anyways, so it wouldn't make that big of a difference.

    Dwights agent DOES NOT want him to come to Houston and feel the Rockets management can not make a championship team.

    Dwight mentioned that in LA there is a "millionaire tax" which Houston does not (I have never heard of this or have any idea)

    Dwight and Fegan STILL want to be in Brooklyn but don't see that happening.

    Atlantas only way to get Dwight would be to sign Paul as well, they are the team that can sign to max players I was told (didnt check this out). Atlanta also has power because Dwight just recently reconnected with his father and his father is out in Atlanta.

    On the "millionaire tax"

    "...at 13.3 percent, the top-tier California income tax is, in addition to being higher than any other state, the steepest it has been since World War II. "

    The Rockets have to jettison Lin and T-Rob's contrcts just to get into the conversation.

    Not being rude or anything but who are you? Chandler P.?
    If true then it's good info and we didn't even have to decipher a sonnet.

    We need to get clutch the bear to have a talk with Dwight's agent. Looks like someone needs to stop being such a sour puss.

    Good news. Thanks for that.

    Someone did a calculation on one of the lakers forums that Dwight would only make an extra 8million in LA playing an extra year because of the millionaires tax. So as far as money is concerned, he's better off in Houston.

    It makes sense that his agent wants him to stay in LA because they get paid as a % of the contract. 117m is a lot more money than 88m for the agent.
