The Lakers are set to acquire Dwight Howard in a four-team trade involving the Magic, Nuggets and Sixers.
A source tells Marc Stein that a trade call has been scheduled with the NBA league office for Friday morning.
The reported deal would send Howard to the Lakers, Andre Iguodala going to the Nuggets, Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson to the Sixers, while the Magic would receive at least Arron Afflalo, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless and a first round pick from each of the other teams.
It was reported earlier on Thursday that Pau Gasol would be included in a trade, but sources indicate that he will remain with the Lakers.

THE MAGIC GOT F*CKED SO HARD!!!!!!!!!!!
BTW IncarceratedBob said it first!
how the hell do the Lakers keep Gasol? if it was Dolan making the decisions, he would've traded away 1/2 the team for DwightHo!
so essentially LA is trading Bynum and draft pick(s) for Howard...?
Dolan should be ashamed of himself seeing how things get done smartly and efficiently by west coasters.
Damn it looks like Kobes gettin number 6...I dont mind as long as its not the Knicks that the Lakers beat in the Finals. We got our own obstacles to get through in the east with the Heat, Scumtics, and perhaps the Pacers and 76ers. Although im not sure how big of a fan i am of the trade for Philly. Getting Bynum is huge but losing Iguodalar hurts in my opinion, he does some of everything.
Ugh. Well thank you magic for being completely stupid and not sending Dwight to the Nets even though they clearly had a better deal for you.
on the brightside, Just 2 less teams in the east we have to worry about now
They got :
*edit* Nick Young (?!)
Its gonna be a battle for that Atlantic Division crown next season... even the Craptors improved a little.

LA also got Duhon. That should put them over the top. hehe
Jodie Meeks has agreed to a two-year, $3 million deal with the Lakers.
Meeks was most recently with the 76ers and will give the Lakers depth as a wing scorer off the bench.
