Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: 3-Way Deal Between the Magic, Lakers and Cavaliers?

Here we go again—another rumor regarding Dwight Howard.  Apparently, the Magic are considering the possibility of a three-way deal with the Lakers and Cavaliers.

This would basically be the same parameters of the three-way trade involving Houston, LA and Orlando. In this scenario, LA would receive Dwight Howard while Cleveland receives Andrew Bynum. Orlando would receive a package of draft picks and players.

This trade proposal makes sense.

LA gets the player that they want.  Cleveland would get an All-Star center who would really complement Kyrie Irving.  According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Bynum would be interested in going to Cleveland as a free agent in 2013.  The Cavaliers would be getting a much better player than the previous deal.  Orlando could take players (Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters) and picks and let the other teams take back some other contracts.

There could be a hitch to this—Dan Gilbert.

He went off about superteams being formed.  If this trade is made, a big superteam is made in LA. However, this trade would give him a young-duo nucleus for years.

For now, the proposal is in infancy.  We'll see if this has legs in the days to come.
