Dwight Howard has long coveted the Brooklyn Nets as his next landing spot, but after a summer filled with daily rumors of four-team trade proposals, the six-time All-Star has moved on from his Big Apple infatuation and is locked in on joining the Lakers, according to sources.

The Lakers, Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly discussing a three-team trade that would send Howard to the Lakers, Andrew Bynum to the Cavaliers and Anderson Varejao and multiple draft picks to the Magic.

Howard has always been impressed with the Lakers’ winning tradition and intrigued with the off-court opportunities that come with playing in Los Angeles.

Questions about his role with the team, however, became an early concern for the three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year. Howard has since moved on from those concerns and is confident he will be an integral part of a team that will have a chance to compete immediately for a championship, according to sources.

The Lakers are reportedly ready to make the trade, but first need assurance from Howard that he’ll commit to the team long-term. Sources say Howard is “excited” about the opportunity to play for the Lakers and will re-sign with the team when his contract expires at the end of the 2012-13 season.

While I've made that joke before a few times, it really it getting old, and plus, it's incredibly off topic from the Lakers.

Nash, Bryant, World Peace, Gasol, Howard. They have a big four while every other contender has a big three. New trend in the NBA?

The NBA is such a joke.

Lebron to Miami destroyed professional sports. Now free agents in all sports are teaming up together and signing together..

This would be great. I'd love to see Nash win a NBA championship and Kobe win another or two.

The NBA is a joke.

One of the only leagues worse than the NHL.

(Strictly speaking of the organizations, not the sports.)
