OKAY! Welcome back to the offseason folks, where Woj is reporting the Sixers may be a part of a 4-team trade that would send Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic to the Los Angeles Lakers. In his article, he says the Denver Nuggets would receive Andre Iguodala as part of the deal and the Sixers would get ANDREW BYNUM. Obviously it's just rumors but Woj is as credible as it gets and it's dead zone of the offseason so I'm jumping at anything.

Dwight and Al Harrington would be going to the Lakers while the Magic would get Pau Gasol, Arron Afflalo and a likely buttload of picks, maybe some of which coming from the Sixers. Bynum expires next year and Gasol the year after. Woj says their destinations "could be fluid" meaning bad things if you want Bynum on the Sixers, which you simply must.

A core of Andrew Bynum, Jrue Holiday, and Evan Turner is something to get really excited about. Obviously the team would be better if they were shipping out Turner and Thaddeus Young for Bynum while retaining Dre, but it's about the future and if they can get a legitimate top-flight center out of this, I won't even care if they trade an unprotected first. This would be awesome.

Obviously rumors, but you can proceed with your OMG BYNUM!!!?!?!?! at your own risk. I can just imagine Doug overseas using all his out-of-network texts to Rod Thorn. "trade dre, trade dre, trade dre. luv u"
