Dwight Howard Traded To Lakers, Andrew Bynum To 76ers In Reported Four-Way Deal

It seems like it's over. Dwight Howard is on his way to joining Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Pau Gasol in pursuit of a championship. Marc Stein of ESPN has the initial report that details the following parts of this deal.

The good news for the Lakers is that they will only have to part with one of their big men. Pau Gasol does not appear to be included in the deal. This means the Lakers can trout out a lineup of Howard at center, Gasol at power forward, Metta World Peace at small forward, Bryant at shooting guard, and Nash at point guard, with playmakers like Jordan Hill, Devin Ebanks and Steve Blake all likely coming off the bench. This is a championship contending lineup for the Lakers, and they should surge up to become one of the Western Conference favorites.
