Orlando, FL (Sports Network) - The Dwight Howard saga is finally over.
Howard was officially traded from the Orlando Magic to the Los Angeles Lakers
on Friday in a four-team, 12-player deal that also included the Denver Nuggets
and Philadelphia 76ers.
In addition to Howard, the Magic sent guard Chris Duhon and forward Earl Clark
to the Lakers in exchange for forward Josh McRoberts and swingman Christian
Eyenga. Orlando also shipped guard Jason Richardson to Philadelphia for center
Nikola Vucevic and first-round draft pick Moe Harkless, while also acquiring
guard Arron Afflalo and forward Al Harrington from Denver.
The Nuggets picked up forward Andre Iguodala from Philadelphia and the 76ers
obtained center Andrew Bynum from the Lakers.
A total of five draft picks over the next five years will also head Orlando's
way. The Magic will receive a second-round pick from Denver in 2013, a first-
round pick from either Denver or New York in 2014, a conditional first-round
pick from Philadelphia and a conditional second-round pick from the Lakers in
2015, and a conditional first-round pick from Los Angeles in 2017.
