The Nets continue to explore trade scenarios to acquire Dwight Howard and are attempting to create a package including at least three first round picks, according to multiple sources.

Brook Lopez would likely go to the Magic in a sign-and-trade, while Kris Humphries would go to a third team.

One of the first round picks that Orlando would acquire could likely come from the third team.

The Nets could look to include as many as five first round picks, but the notion of the team sending more than three picks to the Magic may be "unrealistic".

Orlando is also looking to shed the contracts of Hedo Turkoglu or Jason Richardson.

The Magic also continue to be in talks with the Lakers, Rockets, Hawks and Mavericks.
