NBA Free Agency: Magic Reportedly Discussing Complex Dwight Howard Trade With Nets

The Dwight Howard rumors continue to swirl around Orlando Magic training camp, with the latest bringing news of a potentially revived trade with the New Jersey Nets, via our own Magic blog Orlando Pinstriped Post.

The Orlando Magic and New Jersey Nets have set "the framework of a possible four-team deal" in which the Magic would trade superstar center Dwight Howard and starting small forward Hedo Turkoglu to New Jersey in exchange for center prospect Brook Lopez and "another significant player obtained elsewhere," according to a report by Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. "No deal was imminent," the Yahoo! scribe says, "but several league sources said talks were entering a crucial time, and the Nets were trying to get the proposal's complex framework completed in the near future."

We had already been aware of a trade with the New Jersey Nets revolving around Brook Lopez, but it appears that the Magic want to get more young talent back in the form of actual players instead of just draft picks.
