The Orlando Magic have traded All-Star center Dwight Howard, the franchise's all-time leader in points and rebounds, to the Los Angeles Lakers in a blockbuster deal involving four teams and 12 players, the team annouced Friday. Orlando also dealt forward Earl Clark and point guard Chris Duhon to L.A. and sent swingman Jason Richardson to the Philadelphia 76ers.

Orlando's haul in the trade is veteran shooting guard Arron Afflalo and veteran big man Al Harrington from the Denver Nuggets; rookie combo forward Maurice Harkless and second-year center Nikola Vucevic from Philadelphia; and veteran power forward Josh McRoberts and third-year swingman Christian Eyenga from Los Angeles.

In addition, Orlando obtained five future draft choices in the trade: Denver's second-round choice in 2013; either Denver's or the New York Knicks' first-round pick in 2014; a protected first-round choice from Philly and a protected second-round choice from L.A. in 2015; and a protected first-round pick from the Lakers in 2017.
