Dwight Howard is now a Laker, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.
The Los Angeles Lakers will receive Howard while the Denver Nuggets get Andre Iguodola, the Philadelpia 76ers receive Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson, and the Orlando Magic will get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the other three teams.
Howard will not sign an extension as part of the deal and Lakers forward Pau Gasol is not included in the trade, according to ESPN and Stein.
The Magic will also receive the Sixers No.1 draft pick Moe Harkless, according to ESPN.
Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the four-team blockbuster deal.
Bynum grew up about an hour away from Philadelphia in Plainsboro, N.J., and may be willing to sign an extension with the 76ers. He could sign a $60 million extension or wait until the end of the season and receive a potential five-year deal worth $102 million.
Andre Iguodala will bring solid numbers to the Nuggets, he averaged 12.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game last season in 62 games for Philadelphia.
The Nuggets will lose a key offensive piece in Afflalo, who averaged 15.2 points, but Iguodala will bring versatility to Denver.
