There has been much talk about the future of superstar center Dwight Howard the past two seasons.

Many believe he will opt out of his contract and leave the Orlando Magic this offseason, and the Magic, while wanting him to stay, will not want to lose him for nothing.  

Among the teams that are interested in acquiring him are the defending champion Dallas Mavericks, who let a number of key players go in the offseason in order to have the cap space to add a superstar.  

Here is a three-team deal landing Howard in Dallas:

Mavericks get: Dwight Howard

Magic get: Brendan Haywood, Shawn Marion, Linas Kleiza, Jerryd Bayless, DAL first-round pick, TOR second-round pick

Raptors get: JJ Redick, Chris Duhon
