Dwight Howard Trade Rumors: 76ers Could Gain Andrew Bynum, Send Andre Iguodala To Nuggets In 4-Team Deal

As it was reported earlier Thursday, the 76ers are involved in the four-team trade discussion centered around the discontent of Magic center Dwight Howard. It could be worth it, though.

I speculated that Andrew Bynum could be apart of the deal for Philly, and according to Adrian Wojnarowski's report, that appears to be the case. Here are the details:

There are multiple moving parts in the fluid talks, but the framework of a possible deal includes Howard and Denver forward Al Harrington going to the Lakers, Philadelphia guard Andre Iguodala going to the Nuggets, Los Angeles center Andrew Bynum moving to the 76ers, and Los Angeles forward Pau Gasol and Denver guard Arron Affalo going to the Magic, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

It would be tough to see Iguodala go, especially as he comes into his own as a seasoned veteran, but building around Bynum could easily be viewed as more promising for the 76ers with all that young perimeter talent to pair him with.
