Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Call With League Office Scheduled For Friday To Process Deal

A conference call has been scheduled with the NBA league office for Friday morning in order to process the possible four-team trade involving Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard, as ESPN's Marc Stein reports. It's unclear how much progress is actually being made, but things are presumably getting closer if the league offices will be contacted soon.

At the moment, the four-team trade is expected to involve the Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, Denver Nuggets and Philadelphia 76ers, with Howard heading west to L.A. The deal is expected to send a variety of assets, including young players and draft picks, to Orlando, while veteran (and often expensive) pieces go elsewhere.

Current reports have the deal sending Andre Iguodala to Denver, Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia and a variety of pieces, potentially including Arron Afflalo and/or Pau Gasol, to Orlando. There have been reminders of caution, though, as the teams are reportedly discussing a few different deals, and we've seen Howard trades fall apart in the past.
