Now that the All-Star game is over, and the Magic don't have to face the idea of Dwight Howard coming back to their arena in another jersey, the chances that he'll get traded have increased drastically. A new rumor has emerged that has another team joining the Lakers in a three-way trade that would send Howard to La-La Land, according to Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel, via SB Nation.

It goes something like this: The Magic send Howard, SF Hedo Turkoglu and Nelson to the Lakers; the Magic receive Bynum and Gasol. The salaries are close to matching up, making the deal work.

A third team, the Toronto Raptors, could be part of the deal or in a separate trade with the Magic, sending PG José Calderon to Orlando.

There is still a lot of work to be done here because the Raptors aren't getting anything in exchange for Calderon. But it seems like Howard might get his wish to move to a bigger market, and he could get to bring his best friend Jameer Nelson with him.
