Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Cavs Reportedly Want Draft Pick To Take Kris Humphries

The Brooklyn Nets appear to be edging ever closer to securing Dwight Howard in a trade from the Orlando Magic, and it appears the Cleveland Cavaliers might be the missing link to get it done. After earlier reports suggested the Cavs might be the third team involved in a blockbuster deal -- and the key taker of Kris Humphries's salary in a sign-and-trade -- Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski piggybacked on that, and added a little clarity on what it would take to get done:

The Nets also would likely need to send some draft picks to the Magic to make it worth their while, which means they could find themselves without many picks for the next decade or so. Of course, if they manage to team Howard with Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Gerald Wallace, their draft picks for the next half-decade might not matter so much.
