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.
