Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier this morning that although no deal is “imminent”, the Magic-Lakers-76ers-Nuggets are discussing a four-way deal that would send Dwight Howard and Denver forward Al Harrington to LA, Philadelphia guard/forward Andre Iguodala to the Nuggets, LA center Andrew Bynum to the 76ers, and LA forward Pau Gasol and Denver guard Arron Afflalo to the Magic. Woj also added the deal would give some draft picks to the Magic, along with some salary-cap relief.
Our thoughts …
Pirozzi: I’m “eh” about this trade. I don’t like it for LA at all. Bynum and Pau > Dwight and Harrington. The only reason to pull the trigger on this deal is for cap relief. Bynum and Pau together cost approximately $10 million more than the latter duo. But, really? … We’re going to have Harrington and Jamison? They’re practically the same player, way too repetitive for my liking.
I like the deal for Denver and Philly though. Intriguing to see a lineup that could be Lawson-Iggy-Gallo-Faried-McGee. Dre would get another player to throw those lobs to also. Philly gets a solid player who knows his role in Afflalo, and a solid big-man (something they’ve been lacking) in Pau. Overall, don’t want this trade to happen.
Bacardi: Thoughts coming soon …

HERE WE GO AGAIN
The Magic have reportedly gone back to the drawing board in hopes of dealing their franchise big man, and this time it involves the Lakers and two other teams.
Whenever a team trades one of the top big men in the league (still in their youthful prime) to the Lakers and gets back scraps there is only one possible motive. They must be searching for Chris Wallace's acceptance and approval. It's like having daddy issues, but in this case wishing your father was Chris Wallace.
Now I don't put this trade solely on young GM Rob Hennigan...
