The Orlando Magic shipped Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers over the evening, with the trade pending league approval, and got back some players and first-round picks in a four-team deal. The Magic also shipped off Chris Duhon and Earl Clark to the Lakers in the deal, according to a report by Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.
