Pau Gasol Not Involved In Proposed Dwight Howard Trade, According To Report

The Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers and two other teams are moving closer to a proposed blockbuster trade involving Dwight Howard. However, contrary to reports, Pau Gasol is not involved in the deal, which is being submitted for league approval, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com.

Initial reports had the Lakers shipping Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia and Gasol to Orlando while receiving Howard and Al Harrington. Stein's report that Gasol is not involved makes the framework of the deal unknown. The Magic have previously been apprehensive to taking back Bynum in a deal, but they surely have to receive more than Arron Afflalo and draft picks.

We could find out the exact details soon as a call will the league office to process the trade has been scheduled for Friday morning.
