Chicago Bulls: How a 3-Way Mega-Trade Could Land Dwight Howard

With the condensed 2011-2012 NBA season in full force and the Orlando Magic quickly becoming a sideshow similar to last year's Denver Nuggets, the need for Orlando to trade the franchise's best player since Shaq has never been higher.

Dwight Howard recently commented that he would be willing consider playing for the Chicago Bulls and added them to the list of potential trade partners who he would sign an extension with if traded to their team. The Bulls were added to a select group of acceptable NBA locations which already includes the Lakers, Nets, Mavericks and Clippers.

Everyone in Chicago has been discussing and drooling over the possibility of the Bulls adding Howard for over a year now. The thought of adding Superman has always been more of a pipe dream than anything, but Howard's latest comments have started the rumor mill churning again in Chicago and this time it seems like there could actually be a chance.

With a vault of assets like Joakim Noah, Luol Deng, Taj Gibson, Carlos Boozer, C.J. Watson, Omer Asik,  the Charlotte first round pick as well as Chicago's own picks, the Bulls are primed to offer the Magic one of the best deals possible for Superman's services.

Everyone in the nation knows that Orlando's front office needs to get a trade worked out before Howard walks away at the end of the year without the Magic getting any compensation for his departure. Therefore, Chicago needs to do whatever is necessary short of trading Rose to prove it has the best package of building block players and draft picks to obtain Howard's all-world talent.

The question now becomes: How can Chicago move to the top of Orlando's trade partner list?

And the answer is quite simple: Add the Philadelphia 76ers to the trade and create a 3-way deal that benefits all three teams.
