Dwight Howard is a Los Angeles Laker. Officially.
The NBA on Friday approved a four-team, 12-player megadeal between the Lakers, Orlando Magic, Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets.
“Well, it looks like Superman has found a home,” Lakers guard Kobe Bryant wrote on his Facebook page.
Philadelphia gets All-Star center Andrew Bynum from Los Angeles and Jason Richardson from Orlando, while Denver gets 76ers All-Star Andre Iguodala, playing for the U.S. men’s basketball team Friday in the Olympics semifinals against Argentina.
“It’s not often you get the opportunity to improve your team by adding an All-Star player like Andre Iguodala,” Nuggets executive vice president of basketball operations Masai Ujiri said. “He’s an Olympian, a great defender and a great all-around player.”
