Dwight Howard Could Be Traded To Lakers In 3-Team Deal With Magic, Rockets, According To Report

The Dwight Howard trade rumors continue to pour out of every NBA news outlet. After rumblings of a three-way trade involving the Cleveland Cavaliers and Brooklyn Nets fell through, the Orlando Magic were forced to go back to the drawing board in search of a destination for their superstar center. It appears they may have a new blockbuster deal brewing.

According to Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD, the new three-team deal would involve the Magic, the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Lakers. In this scenario, Howard would be sent to the Lakers and the Rockets would receive center Andrew Bynum, who has been a headache for both Los Angeles and their fans for a few years now.

The Lakers would be thrilled to get Howard and the Rockets would be thrilled to pick up Bynum. Orlando would receive "a number of first-round picks, prospects and significant cap relief" with which to begin a rebuilding effort, according to Kennedy.
