Broussard: Dwight Howard trade “may happen today”

According to Chris Broussard, Dwight Howard is expected to ask the Orlando Magic for a trade to the Nets today, and that the deal could be done by the end of the day.

Of course, given the general structure of superstar-laden deals in the past 24 hours, it’s hard to believe anything that’s going on in the NBA. The deal reportedly includes Brook Lopez and two first-round picks going one way, with Hedo Turkoglu potentially included in the deal.

Chris Mannix of SI.com reports that the Nets have had no discussions with Orlando regarding Howard yet, though they’ll assuredly make that phone call soon.

Meanwhile, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! tweeted earlier today that the Nets had agreed to terms for a one-year contract with free agent Shelden Williams, but the tweet has since been deleted.
