The Nets are prepared to offer Brook Lopez and two future first round picks to acquire Dwight Howard before he becomes a free agent next summer, according to sources.
In order to improve the offer, the Nets are willing to absorb the contract of Hedo Turkoglu, who has three seasons and $35 million remaining on his contract. The Nets would be able to acquire his contract due to cap space created by the expected release of Travis Outlaw.
The Lakers and Knicks are widely presumed to be Howard's preferred destinations.
Despite their interest in Howard, the Nets are expected to make offers to Nene and Tyson Chandler.
