With Steve Nash in the house for the Lakers, will the front offices in Orlando and L.A., along with the offices of Dan Fegan, agree that a trade of Dwight Howard for Andrew Bynum make sense? It would be intriguing, writes Adrian Wojnarowski, but there are issues that need to be settled, starting with Orlando's desire for draft picks and cap relief and L.A.'s lack of the first and reluctance to help on the second.

Ken Berger says the Nets and Magic are talking nonetheless. "The Nets and Magic are 'still plugging away' with possible Howard trade scenarios, according to a person familiar with the process." Bergen said as well that the Magic are also talking to other teams. "Everything is in play," Berger quoted another source, including a possible deal with the Lakers

Berger also tweeted "league source on Nets reworking Teletovic deal, alleviating hard cap and enhancing Dwight Howard trade prospects: "It's beyond huge." He provided no details.

Howard has always wanted to play with a great point guard, Woj writes. Thus the attraction of Deron Williams and now possibly Brooklyn. He's also wanted to be a big star and now could choose between coasts. He also wants a new start and there are no better ways than to re-make yourself in one of the nation's two makeover capitals.

Bottom line for Woj: it's still Howard's call, but Nash is more likely to get him to come than Kobe Bryant. Meanwhile, on the coast where reality dawns late, Brian Schmitz and Mike Bianchi advise new Magic GM Rob Hennigan to hold strong against the entreaties or the evil Nets and simply wait for a while.
