I think it's official: enough people are reporting it, enough players involved are tweeting it. Woj first reported the rumors early Thursday, and Marc Stein later had the official principals:
Lakers: Dwight Howard, Chris Duhon, Earl Clark
Nuggets: Andre Iguodala
76ers: Andrew Bynum, Jason Richardson
Magic: Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic, Moe Harkless (plus 3 -or potentially more- first round picks)
