Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Cavaliers Reportedly Back In As Potential Third Team For Magic, Lakers Deal

The Cleveland Cavaliers just can't stop getting involved with Dwight Howard, it seems. Of course, they're not after bringing Howard to Cleveland, they've just been floated as a potential third team in a trade involving him more than once. Most recently, they were supposedly involved in a potential deal that would have sent Howard to the Brooklyn Nets.

But the deal was called off and the Cavaliers were no longer involved - until now, apparently. Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD reported via Twitter that the Cavs are back in on the talks as a potential third team - this time helping facilitate a trade between the Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers:

Kennedy followed up with another Tweet that had some details about the potential trade. It suggested that Howard would go to the Lakers and Andrew Bynum would go to the Cavaliers. The Magic, in all of this, would be getting picks, prospects and/or cap relief.

It's a trade that makes sense on many levels, the least of which is not the fact that Bynum has mentioned the Cavaliers as a team he'd like to go to. At one point, there was talk of Bynum going to the Magic, but it was revealed that he wasn't likely to sign a long-term deal there, but that he might be interested in doing so with the Cavs. We'll see if this goes anywhere.
