Dwight Howard To Lakers In Four-Team Trade
The Lakers are set to acquire Dwight Howard in a four-team trade involving the Magic, Nuggets and Sixers.
A source tells Marc Stein that a trade call has been scheduled with the NBA league office for Friday morning.
The reported deal would send Howard, Chris Duhon and Earl Clark to the Lakers, Andre Iguodala going to the Nuggets, Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson to the Sixers, while the Magic would receive at least Arron Afflalo, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless, Christian Eyenga, Josh McRoberts and a first round pick from each of the other teams along with the Warriors' second round pick in 2013 via Denver.
David Aldridge reports that the future picks the Magic receive are Philadelphia's own selection with protection, the lower of Denver's two picks as they also own the Knicks' first rounder in 2014 and the Lakers' first round pick in 2017.
It was reported earlier on Thursday that Pau Gasol would be included in a trade, but sources indicate that he will remain with the Lakers.
