    The Dwight Howard saga reportedly is about to come to an end.

    Get the latest news and rumors about NBA free agency.

    In a blockbuster, four-team deal, the Orlando Magic have agreed to trade the All-Star center to the Los Angeles Lakers, ESPN is reporting.
    The Lakers will send Andrew Bynum to the 76ers, who also will get veteran guard Jason Richardson from the Magic. Denver, in turn, will receive All-Star swingman Andre Iguodala from the Philadelphia 76ers and one future first-round pick from each of the other three teams.
    Orlando will receive veterans Al Harrington and Arron Afflalo from the Denver Nuggets and Nikola Vucevic from the 76ers.
    The teams have scheduled a trade call with the NBA for Friday in order to make the deal official, ESPN reported.

    I my opinion this is bad move..Lakers taking the risk of having a weak supporting cast in exchange of three hall of fame players to win a championship this year

    Lets take a closer look: LA has

    1. (PG) an experienced 2-time MVP pass-first 10+ assists point guard with a high freethrow percentage..
    2. (SG) a 5-time NBA champion pure scorer/closer that can get his shot anytime anyplace..
    3. (SF) a feared defensive specialist..
    4. (PF) a 5+ assists, 10 rebound, 15 point big man with a solid midrange jumper..
    5. (C) a 20 point, 15 rebound, 3 block shot 2 or 3-time defensive player of the year Center...
    6. A very limited coach that apparently interviews well.
    That's a pretty tight squad.. The weakness of their bench won't be a factor until they're deep into the playoffs. If Phil were to pop up from the bushes to coach, they could very easily be looking at a high 70-win season and an NBA championship. But that's not likely to happen.. They're probably stuck with Mike James for this season at least.. so they'll be sold-out.. and I expect to see them in the Conference finals.. but the East is too strong right now.. it's really going to take some masterful coaching or some masterful staying out of the players way to get a ring out of this team next season.

    Mike James better not mess this up.

    Lakers aside...

    Philly did pretty well in this trade too.. Doug Collins is an excellent coach.. and it will be interesting to see what he is able to do with Bynum in Philly.

    Orlando doesn't matter.. and George Karl in Denver can win with any roster.

    Back to the Lakers.. I hope Kobe remembers what he did to Shaq. Cause it's about to happen to him with Dwight. LA's management has no loyalty.. Dwight is only 26 years-old.. and if they sign him to a multi-year deal Kobe could end up out the door. Kobe's contract is through the 2013-14 season. And as crazy as trading Kobe Bryant sounds.. it was just as crazy when they did it to Shaq.

    peace

    I think this move was to make kobe reconsider retiring in 2 years. By adding howard and being able to keep Gasol, you are almost guaranteed to make to the late rounds of the playoff's and possibly more rings.

    :thinking:

    if kobe has a chance to have more rings than his airness, he will not pass up the chance. With howard, its a good probablity he will get one more either this year or next year, IF howard does not opt out of his contract and go to dallas.
