Dwight Howard Trade: Lakers Give Magic Josh McRoberts In Deal, According To Report

The deal involving Dwight Howard's trade to the Los Angeles Lakers is still adding players to be traded. NBA writer Sam Amick has tweeted that the Magic would get Lakers forward Josh McRoberts in this trade.

McRoberts has been in the NBA for five seasons since being drafted in the second round by the Portland Trail Blazers in the second round in 2007. After spending his first season in Portland, he spent three seasons with the Indiana Pacers.

In the 2010-11 season, he had his best season in the NBA, averaging 7.4 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. Though those numbers dipped in Los Angeles last season, McRoberts does have some success and can be a good provider for the Magic.
