Supposedly there's a major blockbuster trade in the works in the NBA.
Lakers get Howard from Orlando
Nuggets get Iguodala from Philly
76ers get Bynum from LA
Here's the tweet:
CSN Philadelphia @CSNPhilly
Rumored Blockbuster: Dwight to Lakers, Iguodala to Denver, Bynum to Philly http://bit.ly/RtNzIs via @The700Level

I would love that. Philly has been lacking a big man for years.
If it happens we should get the guy tfrom philly to handle the NCAA for us.
What does Orlando get and Denver give up?

Omfg 10,9,8 eff the heat.
"There are multiple moving parts in the fluid talks, but the framework of a possible deal includes Howard and Denver forward Al Harrington going to the Lakers, Philadelphia guard Andre Iguodala going to the Nuggets, Los Angeles center Andrew Bynum moving to the 76ers, and Los Angeles forward Pau Gasol and Denver guard Arron Affalo going to the Magic, sources told Yahoo! Sports."
Don't know. That's the question I have as well since they aren't listed.
Orlando wants draft picks. Since the Lakers traded for Nash, they couldn't offer their picks (the Magic don't care where they are..they just want picks). I assume that Denver is throwing in picks and possibly some young talent to go back to Orlando. (Jordan Hamilton is one player that makes sense)
Not a Philly fan, but I would not be shocked if the Sixers had to throw a pick or a player(s) in.

Oops completely misread. Crazy deal.

If the Sixers are giving up more than Iggy they better be getting more than Bynum in return.
As a Sixers fan, I'LL TAKE THAT!
JMO, I followed the previous talks closely (Lakers and Cavs fan)...Orlando is asking a lot for D-12 (numerous draft picks/young cheap assets and salary relief). Here are the problems for the teams involved
1.) the Lakers can't/won't take on a bad salary (they actually would prefer to also shed a bad contract)
2.) Due to the Nash deal, the Lakers have little other than Bynum to offer in the deal (Orlando doesn't want that)
3.) the Magic want to shed a couple bad contracts
4.) the Magic want at least 3 first round picks
5.) Due to NBA rules, since none of the teams have significant cap space (like the Cavs), the salaries exchanged must be approximately the same. ****
**** Correction, the Nuggets have a $13 million trade exception from the Nene deal. Sorry for the mistake, I just remember the Cavs being the big player because they were the only team that could take Bynum's salary (or in the nets deal Humphries)
Also another note, I guess Pau Gasol would be flipped in another future trade.

That really to good to be true. Sixers have to give up a little more to match salaries I think
I love it wish it happens. Give up Iggy and get Bynum doesn't seem real.
Meyer4Prez "This is wut happens when ur team site analyst are huge homers glad Bill K+Alex G keep it real instead of getting our hopes up."
This would make me very happy. I'd be happy to build around Jrue/Bynum.
We can't trade draft picks because basically the Miami Heat own like the next I think like 4 1st round picks. Maybe we'd throw in Vucevic? Either way, get this deal done.
I'll believe it when I see it. With all the Howard trade talk for the last... idk... year? it's hard to believe that a trade will ever happen! Crazy trade if true though!
Sixers don't have to match salaries, I believe, because they are under the cap.
Iggy's trade value is much lower than Bynums. In fact I think last season or the one previous to that the sixers were willing to give up iggy for a cup of coffee.
If the magic do not get multiple first rounders from this trade they got fleeced. Gasol, while nice is getting older and afflalo if decent, but not enough for Howard.
So we throw in Nick Vucevic. I'd be happy with that. Much rather see Nick go than Lavoy Allen.
Nobody wants him. I believe the only reason Collins pushed to sign him was to justify Collins' push to draft him #1 overall.
If he can give us 10 rebounds a game, hustle and play defense then I'll be happy.
