Dwight Howard trade rumors: Nets taking a run at struggling Lakers star?

As losses continue to pile up for the Lakers, Dwight Howard trade rumors are again starting to form.

The Los Angeles Lakers fell 95-83 in Chicago to the Bulls on Monday night, the team's third straight defeat and ninth loss in the last 11 games. With exactly half of the regular season complete, the Lakers now sit at 17-24 overall, 12th in the Western Conference.

As Los Angeles continues to struggle due to a myriad of injuries and a floundering defense, much of the attention has turned to what the team will do next season. Dwight Howard, the Lakers' prized offseason acquisition, will be a free agent once this campaign mercifully ends for L.A., and the star center has given no assurances he will re-sign.

A report on Tuesday from Jarrod Rudolph of Real GM said the Brooklyn Nets are trying to put together a package to entice the Lakers to move Howard by the trade deadline. Rudolph cited the Nets' desire to rope in the Minnesota Timerbolves as a third team to help facilitate the trade, with a package centered around disgruntled forward Kevin Love.

Serena Winters of Lakers Nation interviewed Rudolph about his report.
