Dwight Howard Trade: Orlando Magic Left Better Deals On The Table

In the blockbuster, four-team trade between the Orlando Magic, Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets, it's no secret that the Magic got the short end of the deal.

There were several other deals on the table that would have been better than them coming away with Aaron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Moe Harkless, Nikola Vucevic, Josh McRoberts, Christian Eyenga and three protected first round picks.

Adrian Wojnarowski outlines the deal from the New Jersey Nets that the Magic ultimately rejected:

General Manager Rob Hennigan says he has a plan to rebuild the team and make them competitive in the long-term, but in the interim and following the teams success over the years, Magic fans are going to have to suffer through some very lean years.
