08:08 AM ET 07.09 | Deron Williams' Dwight Howard dreams may be coming true, after all. The Nets and Magic made progress Sunday on a blockbuster trade scenario that would send [Howard] to Brooklyn with an assist from the Cleveland Cavaliers, multiple league sources told CBSSports.com. Despite significant work left to be done, the Nets moved toward a series of options that would "sweeten the pot" for the Magic and perhaps compel them to finally end the year-long drama involving their All-Star center, one of the sources said. The first hurdle was involving the Cavs as a third team that would be able to absorb the contract of Nets forward Kris Humphries in a sign-and-trade aspect of a larger, vastly complicated proposal.

Is that all we get the expiring contract of Humphries?

No. You get to give away a couple of draft picks a well.

I guess the lockout did nothing for the CBA. We are going down a path of a handful of superteams and the havenots.

Hedo to Cleveland? Why would we want his old body on a team that is one of the youngest in the league?

Any good bars for Hedo in Cleveland?

God this crap is getting old as hell.

It isn't clear who the Cavs would give up -- probably Thompson ? (which I think would be a bad move)

No way Cavs would take Turk -- unless the Cavs are forced to take him to get something else which is a lot better.

The Ryan Anderson trade really showed that Orlando is giving up on contending any time soon. Howard has handcuffed the team, I'd say they are better off playing out Dwight's last year and just knowing there is a 2014 lottery pick in your future. Any trade would just build this team up to be a fringe 8-seed with the collection of half decent players.... So far I'm not so impressed with the 30 year old GM

It's impossible to have all 30 teams competing for a championship at the same time... the owners fooled the players.... hahaha

Orlando will get some draft picks as will the Cavs even when they get Humphries.Orlando will get Lopez and a few players along with picks, the nets will get Howard.Am guessing Turkoglu will be sent to Cleveland as well.Hornets have sneaked Ryan Andersen out of Orlando with that lop sided trade.Hornets are a potential playoff team now(on paper).But back to the point at hand....Howard with the nets means top 3 seed in the east, Bosh definitely can't play center, heat better acquire Aaron Gray,Oden or maybe with a dinner and some Riley persistence, sign Camby.Camby appears to be like Nene & Dalembert...First it was all about winning, now they just wanna get paid.Camby wants to win a title, but he wants 3 million?Really?

I read that Orlando gets Lopez and five first round picks over time, two of which come from Cleveland. The Cavs get Humphries and another player which now makes sense would be Turk!
