BREWER vs. DREW on Dwight Howard



The Lakers acquired Dwight Howard in a four-team, 12-player trade on Friday. Kevin Brewer [postmodcast] and basketball guru Jeff Drew talk about it.

DREW: Great deal for the Lakers. Good deal for Philadelphia and maybe even Denver. Terrible deal for Orlando, unless Moe Harkless is a star or they are extremely lucky with draft picks.
