The Nets have been considered favorites to land Howard for much of the past year, but the teams have never been able to close the deal.

In the past week alone, reports on a potential trade between the two sides have often conflicted. At one point Monday, the Nets were said to be "close" to acquiring Howard in a four-team deal. Then, the Cavaliers reportedly dropped out of the trade, reopening the process.

More recently, reports that the Rockets and Lakers were again involved in discussions to trade for Howard have made Brooklyn's chances look worse.

Ford reports the Nets are concerned that free agent center Brook Lopez, who would be the centerpiece of their package for Howard, will sign an offer sheet with another team.
