The Many Options of the Howard Trade

It has become sadly obvious that Dwight Howard will not be in Orlando past this season, but rather than cry about it, the Magic must maxamize his value. The following options are avalible The Nets and the Lakers are the two suitors who have something to offer...The Nets package, Brooke Lopez and 4 1st rd picks, isnt as appealing as what can be had from the Lakers, Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol. Its the Lakers ability to 3 or 4 teams involved that make them the perfered partner....lets explore the options. As we know from the failed Chris Paul trade, Houston is willing to give back Luis Scola (18ppg, 8rpg) and Kevin Martin (24ppg)...this is a very interesting package and would jump start a rebuild process, you could always keep Pau Gasol in Orlando as well... Andrew Bynum is IMO undesirable in Orlando, I have no problem keeping Gasol, but Bynum must be sent to a 3rd team, thankfully there are many possibilities... To Golden State for Monta Ellis, I wouldnt want to put him next to Kevin Martin because he doesnt share the ball, but he could be effective with Pau Gasol...he hasnt haf the oppertunity to play with a good big man... To Atlanta for Josh Smith, powerful finisher, would be a good pick and roll partner for Monta Ellis, young, athletic and fun to watch To Minnesota for Michael Beasley and Derrick Williams, the most potential but also the greatest unknown...Beasley was pretty good last year, Williams was another top pick....Kahn is an idiot and could be convinced to include Wes Johnson or Anthony Randolph A lot of these guys have been rumored for each other, Andre Igoudala, Danny Granger, Josh S mith, and Monta Ellis are constantly in the rumor mill...Utah could be convinced to move Al Jefferson and/or Paul Milsap...Chicago could be convinced to move Carlos Boozer and/or Luol Deng...Boston has even offered Rajon Rando (i highly doubt it tho) If I missed any names please let me know....so what is the best possible realistic combination for Orlando? Could this be
