Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Andrew Bynum Swap For Lakers To Get Magic Superstar?

Time for another round of Dwight Howard trade rumors. Because this man always wants to be dealt and he never ends up getting traded.

The current circulated trade rumors involve multiple teams that include the New Jersey Nets, Houston Rockets, but also the Los Angeles Lakers. The common sentiment is that the Magic would be interested in dealing Dwight Howard if they could somehow get Andrew Bynum back. Orlando getting perhaps the second best center in the league in exchange for the first would soften the blow. Howard for Bynum would probably be the best deal on the table for either side.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports files this report with further details on how teams are pursuing Bynum, particularly the Lakers.

While the Lakers have yet to make a direct offer, there's no scenario where Orlando would move Howard to the Lakers without getting back Andrew Bynum, L.A.'s 24-year-old All-Star center. Pau Gasol wouldn't fit the Magic's desires to rebuild with young players and draft picks.

The Lakers had been willing to part with Bynum for Howard in March, but those talks ended when Howard decided to decline his early termination option and remain under contract through the 2012-13 season.


Talk about Bynum and Howard with Lakers fans over at Silver Screen and Roll, and with Magic fans over at Orlando Pinstriped Post.
