After months of rumors and negotiations and failed deals, we might have a resolution to the Dwight Howard trade saga as soon as Friday morning. A call with the league office to process the four-team trade has been scheduled for Friday morning, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The fact a call has been scheduled means this deal looks like it's much more than a rumor. With four teams and a number of pieces involved, there are plenty of variables to still cause it to fall apart, but it's safe to say this is the farthest any Howard trade talks have gotten.
We still don't know all of the details of the deal, but we do know Howard is set to land in Los Angeles with Al Harrington, while Andrew Bynum will head to Philadelphia, Andre Iguodala to Denver and Pau Gasol, Arron Afflalo and draft picks going back to the Magic.
