If you're unaware of the Dwight Howard free-agency situation, I'll assume that you are both Amish and not a daily paper reader. I'll direct the next paragraph to the ones who fit that description and may have gotten hold of this article some how. Here goes.
The Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard will become the most coveted free agent in the summer of 2012. All signs point to him signing elsewhere as he's refused to sign an extension and wants management to build a contending team before he decides to stay.
That may be too big of a task for them in a small amount of time. A number of unfavorable contracts leave their hands tied in terms of what they can do. And they have not made smart moves as of late.
Trading him may be the best option for them moving forward.
The Los Angeles Lakers are the favorites to obtain the three time Defensive Player of the Year, should he be placed on the trading block in the coming months. A deal sending out Andrew Bynum, Lamar Odom, and or Paul Gasol, along with a few draft picks is the perceived deal of many.
This way the Lakers can retool their roster for the past and present as they appear to be fading at the moment, and the Magic get a solid center in return and perhaps another quality player or to in return.
There are probably some better deals Orlando could find, which could result in them refusing to send Howard out west. However, the Lakers have been known to pull off big deals throughout time, and they could very well make that happen here.
Staying tuned is our only answer right now though.
