Lakers Rumors: Dwight Howard, Lakers Deal Rumored for March 1?

This morning we reported that the Magic had turned down a deal for Dwight Howard that centered around Andrew Bynum.

Now, John Cherwa of the L.A. Times is reporting that the teams are working on a restructured deal that will still send Howard to the Lakers, but will cost them both of their All-Star big men.

The Magic send Howard, Hedo Turkoglu and Jameer Nelson to the Lakers for Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. The Toronto Raptors are also part of the rumor sending Jose Calderon to Orlando, although no one is quite sure what would complete that part of the trade.

The rumor also has all this happening on March 1.

This could help the Lakers in a variety of ways, including their troubles at the point guard position. Still, giving up both Gasol and Bynum is something the team has been previously unwilling to do.

If the trade does go down as rumored here, chalk it up to feelings of desperation in the Lakers front office.
