Just when it seemed like things were quiet on the Dwight Howardfront, here we go again.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers are discussing a major deal that would send Howard to Los Angeles.
Wojnarowski says the framework of the deal would be “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 also gain “gaining draft picks and salary-cap relief.”
Pau Gasol doesn’t seem like a lot of relief – he’s owed $19,000,000 next season and $19,285,850 for the 2013-14 season. Of course, the Magic could trade Gasol later on.
