Rockets Reportedly Re-Emerge In 3-Team, Dwight Howard-To-Lakers Trade

This is like the song that never ends.

With the Brooklyn Nets re-signing center Brook Lopez Wednesday, a move to bring Dwight Howard to that team now appears unlikely.

So what's next?

Well, according to the Houston Chronicle, the Rockets have re-emerged as a team that could be part of a deal that would move Howard out of Orlando, only this time, Howard would be headed to the Los Angeles Lakers and Andrew Bynum could be on his way to The Bayou City.

The Chronicle cited "a person familiar with the process," going as far as to say that discussions for this three-team trade were "serious" Wednesday afternoon, but that the Magic backed off to consider their options.

If the move were to occur, the Chronicle's source said that Luis Scola could become an amnesty cut, which would give Daryl Morey enough cap room to make this blockbuster move achievable for all three teams. Scola is due more than $21 million over the next three seasons but would not count against the team's salary cap.
