The Dwight Howard trade news has been coming fast and furious Thursday night and after earlier reports indicated a four-team deal which would send Howard to the Lakers had been agreed upon, one of the NBA's best insiders has now confirmed the trade. Three agents with players involved in the trade said the deal is expected to be completed Friday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
According to Wojnarowski's report, the deal breaks down as follows:
- The Lakers would receive Howard.
- The 76ers would receive Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson.
- The Nuggets would receive Andre Iguodala.
- The Magic would receive Arron Afflalo, Al Harringon, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless and three first-round picks.
Pending league approval, it appears the Dwight Howard trade saga is finally complete. As earlier reports indicated, Pau Gasol is not involved in the trade.
