Magic Focusing On Howard For Bynum Trade With Lakers
The Magic are focusing their attention to trading Dwight Howard in a deal involving Andrew Bynum, according to sources.
Beyond Bynum, Orlando would require draft picks and absorb long-term money from their payroll either in the form of Hedo Turkoglu or Jason Richardson.
A trade centered around Howard for Bynum has long been considered a strong possibility.
Orlando would seek a contract extension with Bynum before they sign off on a trade.
Sources say there is one other trade scenario for a significant player that intrigues general manager Rob Hennigan, but the specifics are unknown.
The Magic have continued discussions with the Brooklyn Nets and Houston Rockets, but aren’t enamored with the possibilities of players and picks.
The Magic are in no rush to deal for Howard.
