Howard, Bynum, Gasol, Iguodala 4 team blockbuster being discussed
The big NBA story of the day was Adrian Wojnarowsk's report that the Lakers, Magic, Nuggets, and 76ers were discussing a blockbuster deal.
"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 proposed deal includes the Magic also gaining draft picks and salary-cap relief, sources said."
Jason Richardson could also be heading to L.A. if this trade went down. Wojnarowski said the deal is not "imminent," but described the talks as serious. The Lakers have resisted in the past including both Bynum and Gasol in a trade for Howard, but in my opinion I think this would still be a very good trade for them. For that reason I hope it doesn't happen. What are your thoughts?
Update 9:19 PMESPN is reporting the deal is "very close" and could be completed tomorrow.
