Lakers Rumors: Magic Turned Down Dwight Howard Trade for Andrew Bynum?

It seems that the Andrew Bynum for Dwight Howard trade has been one of the more inevitable trades in recent history, but thus far hasn’t happened. There were reports that Howard took the Lakers off his wish list and other, similar rumors, but so far he is still a member of the Magic.

Now, according to Peter Vecsey of the New York Post, it’s being reported that the Lakers offered Bynum to the Magic in exchange for Howard and were turned down.

“I can tell you for a fact the Lakers offered Andrew Bynum and the Magic do not want him,” said a Western Conference executive.”

The Magic had been trying to pry both Bynum and power forward Pau Gasol from Los Angeles in exchange for Howard, but so far the Lakers have been reluctant to do so, and that sentiment probably won’t change moving forward. The Lakers front office has been quoted as saying they refuse to trade two All-Stars (Bynum, Gasol) for one.

If Orlando is going to move Howard they have until March 15 to do so. If he’s not traded by then he will play out the rest of the season with the Magic before becoming an unrestricted free agent this summer.

    Forget Dwight Howard and all the rumors that come along with him.  Chase a point guard, and a  couple scoring sparks off the bench.  We don’t even need a big name point guard, just someone to facilitate and score to help out Kobe and our struggling offense.

    LA look at my trade below.  We bring in Sessions.  Wait til Monday or Tuesday.

    Hard to shop Andrew on his own with the history of injuries.

    No, no, no. Not Dwight Howard. Keep Bynum and Gasol. Just get Aaron Brooks. Trade MWP for JR Smith of the NY Knicks, because he’s more intense, can shoot better, can defend better, and is feisty. Then, trade Luke Walton and Darius Morris for Jordan Farmar and Keith Bogans of the NJN.

    just one star(Either Pasol or Bynum) + one more Laker = Howard. D12 is not that great to be an asset for the Lakers’ championship run this year. All big Dwight does in the Magic is to flash his huge, shiny mouthpiece between the ball and the rim to distract opponents. He’s not even close to the maturity and discipline shown by Bynum on and off the court.

    Magic front office has long memory since Shaq Departure from Free Agent at his own will, and the loss to Lakers in Final might mean Magic rather take risk not trading him and had him walk away and gain nothing.
