Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

We're about to find out how Dwight Howard looks in purple and gold threads now that a four-team trade is sending him across the country to the Los Angeles Lakers

According to an ESPN report, the Lakers are sending Andrew Bynum to the Philadelphia 76ers and getting back the NBA's best center. Obviously, there are plenty of other pieces in play as well: 

A source with direct knowledge of the talks told ESPN.com's Marc Stein the Lakers will receive Howard, the Denver Nuggets will acquire Andre Iguodala, the 76ers will receive Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson, and the Magic will get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the other three teams.

In addition, the Magic will be getting other pieces, including 76ers No. 1 draft pick Moe Harkless a source told Stein.

The Lakers made out like bandits in this trade, but they aren't the only winners in this multi-team, blockbuster swap. Plus, just as in any trade, some losers have emerged as well. 

Let's find out who these winners and losers are.
