|Dwight Howard To L.A. Talks Back On|
No deal is imminent....talks have grown serious.....Dwight Howard is set to be traded to the Lakers. We've heard all this before and now, after a couple of weeks without a new D12 story, reports have emerged that the Lakers and Orlando are engaged in talks with Denver and Philadelphia, that would see All-Star Dwight Howard traded to Hollywood.
At least we had a couple of weeks of silence on this matter. Here we go again.
A deal is not considered imminent, but the talks have grown serious over the course of this week, sources said.
There are other players involved in these fluid talks, but a framework of the 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 Magic would have a better chance of moving Gasol in another deal to get further assets, sources said, and eliminate the risk of Bynum leaving them as a free agent in 2013.
The proposed deal includes the Magic also gaining draft picks and salary-cap relief, sources said.
