The Clippers already wrested Chris Paul from the Lakers.
Now they might help prevent their Staples Center co-tenants from getting Dwight Howard.
These are certainly interesting times in the Hallway Rivalry.
Multiple reports have stated that the Clippers could be peripherally involved in a four-team trade in which the Brooklyn Nets land Howard, the Orlando Magic All-Star center they have long coveted, to form a Big Three alongside Deron Williams and Joe Johnson.
As part of the proposed deal also involving the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Clippers would send a lottery-protected first-round draft pick to the Magic while receiving Nets shooting guard MarShon Brooks.
Brooks, a 6-foot-5 swingman, averaged 12.6 points and 3.6 rebounds last season as a rookie. He would join a backcourt that already includes Paul, Chauncey Billups, Eric Bledsoe and Jamal Crawford.
