Could the Dwight Howard saga finally reach a climactic end?

Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski blew up the Twittersphere by reporting that the L.A. Lakers, Denver Nuggets, Philadelphia 76ers and Orlando Magic have been, and are currently, discussing a mega-deal involving multiple All-Stars:

Orlando and the L.A. Lakers are engaged in 4-way talks with Denver and Philadelphia on a Dwight Howard blockbuster, league sources tell Y!

— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) August 9, 2012

Not only are usual suspects like D12 and Andrew Bynum involved, but Pau Gasol, Andre Iguodala, Arron Afflalo and Al Harrington have also been mentioned.

Who are the winners and losers of this monumental trade, which would send Gasol, Afflalo and a ton of picks to Orlando, Iggy to Denver, Bynum to Philly and both Howard and Harrington to L.A.? 

NBA assistant editors Ethan Norof and Joel C. Cordes break down this proposed transaction from every angle.

There's a lot to discuss with this latest trade machination by the Magic and Lakers, so be sure to leave us your comments below!
