Dwight Howard Trade Could Involve A Third Team Taking On Kris Humphries

Things seem to be picking up considerably when it comes to Dwight Howard trade rumors. Tuesday morning has already included reports that the Nets are still involved and that the Orlando Magic are trying to involve five other NBA teams, but now it seems that lesser parameters are falling in to place as well.

For instance, if Brooklyn ends up actually trading for Howard, that deal will need to clear quite a bit of space off of the Nets payroll. For this to happen, apparently, the Nets will have to find a third team to take part in the deal -- a team that's interested in acquiring the services of one-time Kim Kardashian husband Kris Humphries.

Humphries likely won't become the hold up in this deal unless he's looking for an exorbitant salary -- he made $8 million last season -- and it's probably actually a good thing that this deal seems far enough long that it's already worth looking at what needs to happen with the lesser pieces for a trade to actually be consummated.
