The Orlando Magic are engaged in trade discussions with the Brooklyn Nets involving a trade of Dwight Howard, reports Chris Broussard of ESPN. In the trade, the Nets would sign-and-trade Brook Lopez and Kris Humphries to Orlando; as free agents, both Lopez and Humphries would have to agree to the trade, which complicates the potential transaction. The Magic would also receive MarShon Brooks and three future first-round draft picks from Brooklyn.

Howard requested a trade to Brooklyn in a meeting with Magic general manager Rob Hennigan on Friday, and indicated in an interview with Yahoo! Sports that he would only consider signing a long-term deal with one team, and though he didn't specify that he meant the Nets, he didn't need to.

Hennigan isn't talking exclusively to the Nets, however: according to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com, he's also trying to get the Atlanta Hawks, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers, and "possibly" the Dallas Mavericks involved in the Howard bidding. Indeed, "the Brooklyn scenario isn't imminent, and it isn't the only one Orlando is working on, sources say," Berger writes.
