The Los Angeles Lakers have a new center piece now that Dwight Howard will be sporting the purple and gold.

The NBA will most likely approve the four team deal later today making the Lakers the team to beat in the West again.

Here is how the deal works.

The Lakers will receive Howard, the Denver Nuggets will acquire All-Star Andre Iguodala, the Philadelphia 76ers will receive All-Star Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson.

The Magic will get Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic and one protected future first-round pick from each of the three teams and the 76ers No. 1 draft pick Moe Harkless.

So with Nash, Kobe, Gasol, Metta and Dwight are the Lakers set to win the championship?
