Report: Brooklyn Nets "making progress" on one piece of Dwight Howard trade

For the Brooklyn Nets to complete a trade for the Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard, the team needs to find a third team willing to take forward Kris Humphries.

CBSSports.com's Ken Berger reports that, although no deal is imminent, the Nets have moved closer to finding that third team. The Cleveland Cavaliers are apparently one potential landing spot for Humphries.

The Nets are reportedly trying to acquire an extra first-round pick, which would allow them to send three first-rounders to Orlando as part of their package for Howard. It seems likely that the team acquiring Humphries would need to include a future draft pick in the deal.

Many pieces would still need to fall in place for Howard to end up in Brooklyn. Humphries and center Brook Lopez, both free agents, would need to agree to sign-and-trade deals. Orlando would also have to decide that Brooklyn's offer is its best. That may not be the case. The Lakers could offer center Andrew Bynum, for example, which would give the Magic a much better piece to start rebuilding around.
