Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: Cavaliers Could Be Part Of Complex 4-Team Deal

The trade that is supposedly being put into place to get Dwight Howard to the Brooklyn Nets keeps getting more and more complicated every hour. It started off being the Nets attempting to get Howard from the Orlando Magic followed by the Magic saying no, and it's moved up since then to be a behemoth of a trade involving four teams and over a dozen players.

The Cleveland Cavaliers from early on have been one of the teams reportedly involved, with Kris Humphries being a likely target for the Cavs in exchange for one of their many upcoming first round draft picks in the next few years.

Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted earlier that the trade has escalated to having 14 players possibly involved, now including MarShon Brooks:

Seriously. It's hard to believe that it could keep escalating from there, but nothing's set in stone yet and the Nets are obviously hell-bent on getting Howard out of Orlando.

Of course, there are some reports out there that say the media frenzy behind this trade might all be smoke and mirrors. Both Tom Withers of the Associated Press and Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal have said that there might not be much to these trade rumors.

Until something more substantive comes out about it, the trade rumors are only going to keep getting bigger.
