Two Big Men on the move?

Big Man Movement:

Lakers receive: Dwight Howard, Tony Douglas and Elton Brand

Knicks receive: Pau Gasol, Ryan Anderson and first-round pick from Orlando

76ers receive: Amare Stoudemire, Justin Harper and first-round picks (From LA and 76ers)

Orlando Receives: Andrew Bynum and Evan Turner


Maybe everyone can be happy, but do the 76ers break up a group that's currently winning? Amare would provide the team with big body in the paint who knows how to be the go-to guy. Rookie Harper has a lot of potential while the picks providing insurance to another major injury from Amare.

The Lakers end up getting their man in Howard and some muscle in Brand along with a hefty bill to go along with it. As the saying goes, "you have give to get." Douglas will provide some depth at the point with Derek Fisher and Steve Blake struggling.

Orlando gets a young All-Star center in Bynum and a solid combo player in Turner with some solid potential.

The Knicks get an old-school forward in Gasol and a stretch-four who is an upgrade over Novak and provides Carmelo with help off the double team, keeping the lanes open for Jeremy Lin's penetration.
