(CBS) – The Orlando Magic want the Lakers to come back to the trade table.
According to multiple reports, the Magic have turned their attention to the Lakers, Mavericks and Hawks as trading partners for All-Star Dwight Howard.
On Monday, the Brooklyn Nets finished a deal with the Hawks for Joe Johnson, basically taking out any possibility of a Howard-to-Brooklyn scenario.
The Magic would be asking for Andrew Bynum as the centerpiece to any deal involving Howard, and the Lakers reportedly would be open to swapping big-men, but Howard has all but said he doesn’t want to play with Kobe Bryant.
