“A four-team trade that would send Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers is complete,” multiple sources told ESPN on Thursday night.
According to the report, the Lakers will receive Howard, the Denver Nuggets will acquire Andre Iguodala, the 76ers will receive Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson, and the Magic will get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the other three teams.
The Magic will also get 76ers No. 1 draft pick Moe Harkless, a source said.
Aug. 9, 3:35 pm: Orlando’s Jason Richardson may also be involved in the blockbuster deal, according to Wojnarowski. He would fill the Lakers need for a shooter.
Aug. 9, 1:47 pm; The Orlando Magic are working on a possible four way trade that would send Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports!
Al Harrington would also follow Howard to the Lakers. Pau Gasol and Arron Affalo would join the Orlando Magic, while Andrew Bynum heads to the Sixers. The Nuggets would receive Andre Iguodala.
Presumably there would be a few more moving parts in the deal with the Magic gaining potential draft picks/cap space.
Wojnarowski believes that the landing spots of Gasol and Bynum could be switched. The Magic are on the fence about acquiring Bynum since he becomes a free agent next summer.
