We knew today was going to be a circus of a day. We haven’t been let down, and it’s not even at the fault of Dwight Howard. The Warriors shook up everything when they acquired Andre Iguodala. Now, that puts them at the front of the Howard chase.
Source says Howard's top two, after trade, are–in no order of preference–Golden State and Houston. Lakers not eliminated, but now behind.

While this means bad news directly for the Lakers, both teams would be interested in a sign-and-trade deal if the Lakers wanted some assets in return for Howard.
