Progress Reportedly Made On Dwight Howard Trade To Nets

The rumors continue to swirl about where Orlando Magic superstar center Dwight Howard will land, but the latest indication is that the Brooklyn Nets, Cleveland Cavaliers and Magic are hammering out a three-team trade that will send Howard to the Big Apple.

Ken Berger of CBS Sports reports that while there is still a lot of work left to be done, significant progress is being made toward getting the trade done. The Cavaliers would pick up Kris Humphries in a sign-and-trade that would free up sufficient cap space for the Nets. In case Humphries does not agree to the move, the Nets are also exploring moving Brook Lopez to a third team.

The Magic, of course, are hoping to get plenty of return in exchange for Howard.

In the ideal scenario for Orlando, the Magic would get multiple first-round and possibly second-round picks, "perhaps a player or two," a source said, and cap relief from moving the onerous contracts of Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson.

Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD reports that the Magic front office will hold a meeting on Monday at 9 a.m. ET to determine whether to move forward with the three-team deal.
