D-Will, D12, Lopez? Can It Happen?

Things are getting ugly again in Orlando following another bad loss. Dwight Howard called out his teammates' effort. Local writers have suggested (again) that it's time for the Magic to deal him, citing his praise of the Celtics organization after the Magic lost to Boston in a classic collapse.

Still, there's no indication that GM Otis Smith and owner Rich DeVos have moved away from their position that Howard won't be traded till after the All-Star Break. But what if the Magic don't trade him at the trade deadline? Is it possible for Billy King to work the cap in such a way that they keep Deron Williams and Brook Lopez while signing Howard as a free agent? Mike Mazzeo tries his hand at the math, with an assist from Larry Coon.
