| The Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers are engaged with the Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers in a four-way blockbuster that could ultimately deliver superstar center Dwight Howard to the Lakers, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. |
A deal is not considered imminent, but the talks have grown serious over the course of this week, sources said.
There are multiple moving parts in the fluid talks, but the framework of a possible deal includes Howard and Denver forward Al Harrington going to the Lakers, Philadelphia guard Andre Iguodala going to the Nuggets, Los Angeles center Andrew Bynum moving to the 76ers, and Los Angeles forward Pau Gasol and Denver guard Arron Affalo going to the Magic, sources told Yahoo! Sports.
If that's the deal that happens, then it's hysterical how little the Magic get compared to other deals that had been discussed. Great for the 76ers, to get rid of Iggy and get Bynum, and obviously the Lakers come out well.
I'm guessing there has to be a bunch of draft picks in there or something, because Gasol and Afflalo instead of say, Lopez and 4 1st rounders is a shit deal for the Magic. I'd bet this is them floating it publicly to see what the criticism will be.
