Dwight Howard trade talks dead(for now); Lopez likely to be re-signed by Nets

After the Nets seemed to issue an ultimatum of sorts on the Dwight Howard trade talks, stating that they were looking to "resolve" the situation today one way or another, the most predictable outcome from that scenario seems to have occurred: nothing.

The tweet-progression from the last half-hour:

One thing that is important to remember is that if a player signs an offer sheet and it is matched, that player can't be traded for a year. So, if Portland gets their offer sheet in, there goes one of the supposed trade chips in a Howard to Brooklyn move(though, as always, I'm still unsure why Orlando would ever want to take Lopez on with a $50 million price tag).
