The Lakers and Cavaliers have been mentioned at times during the Dwight Howard trade saga but now, for the first time, they may be involved in the same trade. The Magic have discussed a three-team trade that would involve both Los Angeles and Cleveland, according to a report from NBA.com's Alex Kennedy.

It's still unknown what pieces would be involved in such a trade, but in earlier discussions the Lakers were rumored to be willing to part with center Andrew Bynum while the Cavs were willing to take on salary. Cleveland dropped out of a three-team deal with the Magic and New Jersey Nets earlier this week.
