Dwight Howard rumors 7/10 - Nets trying to get 3-team deal going

Nothing earth-shattering, just wanted to make sure there was a separate thread for this:

The Nets are progressing with plans to recruit a third team to absorb salary in a blockbuster trade proposal that would send Dwight Howard to Brooklyn, league sources told CBSSports.com Sunday.

A key component of the proposed deal with Orlando would be finding a third team to take the Nets' Kris Humphries in a sign-and-trade arrangement. Cleveland has emerged as a "possible destination" for Humphries in such a scenario, in which the Nets would attempt to accumulate at least three first-round picks to send to the Magic in their package for Howard, one of the sources said.

The Cavs have as many as six first-round picks in the next three drafts -- three of them from previous trades, with various levels of protection. However, with cap space to sign Humphries as a free agent, getting Humphries alone wouldn't provide any incentive for Cleveland to surrender one of those picks.

The complicated framework was far from agreed to Sunday, but the Nets were "making progress" in their longtime pursuit of Howard, one of the people said. The Magic remain engaged in trade talks for Howard with several teams and have not been given the green light by Brooklyn officials that a third-team facilitator has been found, another source said.
