Lakers pushing hard to land Magic center Dwight Howard & meeting with Magic today,sources tell Y! LAL wants DH contract extension commitment— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) July 17, 2012
Since the Brooklyn Nets dropped out of trade talks, the Lakers have ramped up efforts to acquire the All-Star center. Where we last left off, the Cleveland Cavaliers were the third team in a rumored three-team deal that would send Howard to Los Angeles.
While the details of that trade were not disclosed, Andrew Bynum seems like a likely trade chip. The Lakers may soon acquire Antawn Jamison and Jermaine O'Neal on minimum contracts, serving as another potential signal that Bynum may soon be leaving town.
