Source: Dwight Howard trade talk confirmed, but still in early stages
According to ESPN’s Larry Coon, the 4-team trade that sends Dwight Howard to the Lakers and Bynum to the Sixers is still “early in the process”.
Here is what Coon tweeted moments ago:
@LarryCoon: But a couple comments: 1) More would need to come back to LA; 2) I can confirm that talks have happened, but it’s very…early in the process, and the names are fluid. If this ends up being an actual trade, the names will likely be different
@LarryCoon: Word got out on this one surprisingly early in the process — usually it doesn’t start to leak until they bring agents into the discussion — so that alone could suggest that Orlando is leaking it intentionally to try to drive up other offers. That last part is just my opinion, however
