Howard Reportedly Traded To Lakers In Four Team Deal

By on August 10th, 2012

Numerous media reports today say that Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard will be traded to the Los Angeles Lakers in a blockbuster four team deal.

Howard will go to LA and Orlando will receive a first round pick from Philadelphia, Denver and the Lakers, all the teams in the deal.   Orlando also gets several players including guard Arron Aflalo and forward Al Harrington from Denver and center Nikola Vucevic from Philly.

Orlando sends Jason Richardson to to Philadelphia and the Sixers also get LA center Andrew Bynum.   Denver gets Andre iguodala from Philly.

Magic officials have been trying to trade Howard since the big man said he did not want to return to the team.   Houston had been a team looking to acquire Howard but that deal apparently could not be made.
