Magic, Nets Need Third Team For Dwight Howard Trade Talks To Progress, According To Report

In a report from ESPN's Chris Broussard early Tuesday morning, a potential trade to send six-time All-Star for the Magic, Dwight Howard, to the Brooklyn Nets was still in discussion and would include the Nets sending off three future first round picks as well as Brook Lopez, Marshon Brooks and Kris Humphries.

However, that deal is more complicated than it looks and would require a third team to acquire Humphries, according to a report from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

As SB Nation Magic blogger, Evan Dunlap, of Orlando Pinstripe Post said on Twitter, this would require a team that "a) want Humphries and b) have something worth Humphries to deal while c) Humphries has to agree to go there." Meanwhile, the Magic have reportedly attempted to engage in trade talks with four other teams.
