    Whoa, I was going to say the rich get richer, but I don't know if this makes them better. They are going to miss Gasol big time.

    Dwight Howard should help them forget Pau.

    Not yet but ESPN and yahoosports top basketball writers have both confirmed it on twitter, so not exactly random sources.

    Re: Chris Paul to the Lakers

    sets them up to trade bynum to the magic for howard ... magic realize they have no chance in hell to resign howard so might as well get as much as they can out of him ...

    There's no way the Magic will trade Howard for just Bynum. The Bulls can blow away whatever the Lakers have left to offer. I think Howard to LA is pretty much out of the question now.

    If they're able to pull this off as well, I understand the trade. I thought they'd want to get CPIII while keeping Kobe and Gasol. That would be a deadly trio. However if they can somehow swing Bynum to get Howard, that's just unfair... but it would be the best for the Lakers.

    was implying that would be the key parts of the trade, i'm sure other parts will be included but those would be the key players involved in the potential trade ...

    and lebron, wade and bosh are "fair"? ... alot of rumblings this summer indicated that cp3 and howard wanted to play together and form their own "big 3" ...

    Other parts like who? Steve Blake? They have nobody else that has any value at all to the Magic. They aren't beating an offer of Noah, Deng, Asik and whatever else the Bulls throw in to make the deal work. The Bulls can also take back Hedo's contract from the Magic.
