Dwight Howard Trade May Be Close To Completion, According To Report

The trade that will end Dwight Howard's tenure in Orlando has seemed inevitable for a while, and now, it seems as though we know his destination. A report from RealGM's Jarrod Rudolph says Howard will be traded to the Brooklyn Nets in an 11-player blockbuster.

Rudolph reports Brook Lopez will be headed to the Magic while Kris Humphries will be traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in order to clear up cap space. This is pretty consistent with a similar report from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, who said that the Nets were the leading contender in trade talks.

Obviously, the deal isn't official until it's official - the Magic are still looking for other offers, according to Rudolph. Considering that likely includes a package from the Lakers including Andrew Bynum, there's still a lot of ground to be covered before a Deron Williams-Joe Johnson-Dwight Howard superteam takes the court in Brooklyn.
