The latest NBA free-agency and trade rumors are flying fast and furious right now.

It's time to make sense of whether Dwight Howard will be joining Deron Williams and Joe Johnson with the Brooklyn Nets. Is their offer of Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and multiple draft picks the best that the Orlando Magic can get right now?

In this episode of Bleacher Report's Basketball by Association, NBA Featured Columnist Joel C. Cordes and NBA Assistant Editor Ethan Norof discuss all of the latest NBA rumors and news.

(If the embedded player fails to load, you can find the episode here.)

Will the Toronto Raptors snag Steve Nash away from the Phoenix Suns? How amazing of a chess move was Toronto's "poison-pill" offer to Landry Fields?

What do the New York Knicks do now that they risk losing Nash and Jeremy Lin if they keep Fields but also risk losing both if Landry stays? Will Lin begin to check his other free-agency options?

Jason Terry is now a member of the Boston Celtics. Did this seal Ray Allen's fate in Beantown, or did the Celts just waste their mid-level exception on aging roster duplicity?

If Allen does leave, what's the best fit for him?

Also on tap, the guys discuss whether Omer Asik is worth the enormous contract offered by the Houston Rockets, if Nic Batum is a better fit with the Portland Trail Blazers or the Minnesota Timberwolves and just what to make of the Los Angeles Clippers' reacquiring Lamar Odom from the Dallas Mavericks.

Pau Gasol makes his usual trade-rumor appearance, while the Rockets' strange situation with Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic is also discussed.
