Andrew Bynum Trade: Center To Join 76ers; Dwight Howard To Lakers, Andre Iguodala To Nuggets

After a flurry of rumors throughout Thursday evening, the four-team trade sending Andrew Bynum to the Philadelphia 76ers is complete, according to ESPN.com. The Sixers will also receive Jason Richardson in the deal. Andre Iguodala will become a member of the Denver Nuggets, and Moe Harkless and Nikola Vucevic will suit up for the Orlando Magic.

Of course, the whole deal revolved around Dwight Howard, who will finally be a member of the Los Angeles Lakers after an offseason of constant speculation and nearly-finished deals. The Magic receive an impressive haul for their troubles. Along with the two former 76ers, they will receive Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington and a protected first round draft pick from each of the three other teams involved.

Bynum is expected to re-sign in Philadelphia, giving the Sixers a solid post presence for seasons to come.
