Dwight Howard Trade: Cavaliers Amid Potential Three-Team Trade To Send Big Man To Los Angeles

The Houston Rockets had long been believed to the primary third trading partner should the Orlando Magic be able to facilitate a deal to send disgruntled big man Dwight Howard to the west coast to play for the Los Angeles Lakers. That, reportedly, has since changed. According to Ric Bucher of ESPN The Magazine, the Cleveland Cavaliers have inched the Rockets as a "facilitator" in a potential deal sending Howard to L.A. Though, a source tells Bucher to exercise caution:

One source familiar with the talks, though, cautioned not to make too much of that shift just yet.

Under the potential deal, Cleveland would land Lakers center Andrew Bynum in exchange for draft picks and veteran forward Anderson Varejao. The Lakers would get Howard for Bynum and the Magic would receive Varejao, as well as draft picks, which are what they've been eyeing all along.
