The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly reached a deal to land six-time NBA All-Star Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic as part of a four-team trade including the Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets.

ESPN is reporting the Lakers have a trade call scheduled for Saturday to secure the necessary approval from the National Basketball Association to make the deal official.

As part of the deal, Philadelphia will get Andrew Bynum from the Lakers and Jason Richardson from the Magic and Denver receives Andre Iguodala from the 76ers.

In exchange, Orlando will take Arron Affalo and Al Harrington from the Nuggets and Nikola Vucevic and Maurice Harkless from the 76ers as well as one first-round draft pick from each of the other three teams involved in the deal.
