Dwight Howard Rumors: Howard to New Jersey Nets, Monta Ellis to Orlando Magic, Brook Lopez to Golden State Warriors in Latest Rumor

The Orlando Magic, New Jersey Nets, and Golden State Warriors have at least discussed a three-team trade wherein superstar center Dwight Howard would land with the Nets, the Magic would acquire Monta Ellis from Golden State, and New Jersey would send Brook Lopez to the Warriors, reports Peter Vecsey of the New York Post, calling the rumors "rumblings."

Such at trade would get Golden State the big man it so desperately wants--in the last two seasons alone, rumors have connected the Warriors to Yao Ming, Greg Oden, DeAndre Jordan, Howard, Chris Kaman, and now Lopez--while giving the Nets another All-Star to pair with Deron Williams. Orlando, who is not impressed with the 23-year-old Lopez, believed to be the centerpiece of any two-way trade between the Magic and Nets, would instead get a proven scorer in Ellis, who owns a career scoring average of 19.6 points per game.

Vecsey also says the Magic could be tempted to trade Howard to the Lakers if Los Angeles is willing to send both Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol back to Orlando. The Lakers, seeking an upgrade at point guard, would insist on Jameer Nelson's inclusion "unless an above-average ballhandler can be obtained elsewhere."
