The Orlando Magic have been busy Tuesday, as rumors of a pending trade sending Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets swirled in the morning. With Howard all but on a plane out of Florida, the Magic have turned their attention to filling the vacuum at center. According to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski, Los Angeles Lakers big man Andrew Bynum is at the top of Orlando's list to step into Howard's shoes.

Bynum would be a solid consolation prize for the Magic. He averaged 18.7 points, 11.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game down low for the Lakers last season. Perhaps more importantly, Bynum would tone down the current drama surrounding Orlando significantly.
