NBA Trade Rumors: If Magic Cave and Trade Dwight Howard, Who Has Best Assets?

We have reached the eve of the NBA Draft, the Dallas Mavericks have recently been crowned 2010-2011 NBA champions and next year's season seems in serious jeopardy.

And yet, it seems as though the only thing people want to talk about is if and when Orlando Magic star Dwight Howard will be traded.

However, the buzz surrounding Howard is understandable.  At 25 years old, he is the league's lone remaining dominant big man, and the combination of his skill set and physical presence have become unrivaled in today's game. 

He is set to become a free agent in the summer of 2012, which has fueled the speculation that the Magic may be forced to trade their superstar instead of risking losing him for nothing should he walk in free agency.

Up until this point, the Magic have publicly said all of the right things in terms of trading Howard: it's not happening.  But as time goes on, it seems more and more likely that "Superman" may ditch Orlando and chase a championship elsewhere. 

If they wait much longer, they will be left out in the cold (and that is hard to do in Florida.)

So, with that being said, who are some of the teams that have the assets to pull off a deal for Howard if the Magic cave and decide to trade their big man?  Let's take a look at some of them.
