The Portland Trail Blazers, Houston Rockets and Miami Heat were interested in acquiring center Brendan Haywood from the Wizards, but couldn’t put together an adequate offer before the Mavericks landed him. The Blazers offered Steve Blake, rookie Jeff Pendergraph and a first-round pick for Haywood. When Washington countered by asking for swingman Rudy Fernandez the Blazers declined. Blazers owner Paul Allen is a big fan of Fernandez. Haywood turned down a four-year, $35 million contract extension from Washington last summer, but a source said the Mavericks hope to re-sign him after the season.

Marc Spears sheds some light on why management may have thought Brendan Haywood wouldn't be coming back to Washington. Also, I'm interested in seeing what everyone has to say about the proposed deal between Portland and Washington. I think that deal would have been much better for the Wizards than the Dallas trade, but there is something to be said for gaining flexibility at all costs.
