OK you guys, it's really might happen this time.
According to a report from Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarwoski the Los Angeles Lakers and Orlando Magic are currently involved in talks for a four-team trade with the Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers that would send big man Dwight Howard to the Lake Show.
Heard this before? Ya, me too.
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.
The proposed deal includes the Magic also gaining draft picks and salary-cap relief, sources said.
Whoa. 'Moving parts?' 'Fluid talks?' the Lakers sending their entire squad to the four corners of the country? This deal sounds done already!
Sources have told Woj that the Magic would have a decnt chance at trading Gasol in another deal to get more bang for their buck, and eliminate the possibility of Bynum pulling a Dwight Howard and take off as a free agent in 2013.
There certainly will be more from this story to come, but it seems like the ball is rolling on a possible trade. Whether said ball is moving forward or backward is yet to be determined.
