Dwight Howard Trade Could Have Jason Richardson, Earl Clark Going To Nets, According To Report

The loose structure of a proposed trade that would send Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets is becoming more specific. While nothing is close to imminent, it appears that the Nets would also be receiving Jason Richardson and Earl Clark from the Orlando Magic, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnaroski.

The Magic, meanwhile, would receive a package led by Brook Lopez and several draft picks, according to Wojnarowski. They would also be able to rid themselves of Richardson's contract, which pays him just under $19 million for the next three years.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are the third team involved and there are still many more details to work out, including the presence of Kris Humphries and the Nets' ability to conjure up more first-round picks to send to Orlando. Wojnarowski describes the trade talks as "fluid," so there will likely be several more iterations of a deal before it actually ends up happening, if it happens.
