Dwight Howard

Mum's the Word

on Lakers Trade

EXCLUSIVE

Dwight Howard had nothing to say when we asked him about the rumored blockbuster trade that would send him to the L.A. Lakers ... well, actually he has a lot to say ... but he's being muzzled.

TMZ has confirmed with sources familiar with the situation ...  Dwight is in "serious negotiations" to become a Laker in a trade involving 4 teams ... and it could happen VERY soon.

If the deal actually goes through, it would send Andrew Bynum packing ... possibly to Philadelphia.

Moments ago, our photog found Dwight in L.A., where he's still recovering from back surgery ... and asked the NBA star about all the wheeling and dealing. 

Dwight pursed his lips at the question (pun intended) -- but with millions of dollars on the line ... it's probably a smart move.

UPDATE:  ESPN is reporting ... the trade was a done deal as of late Thursday night, so Dwight is headed to L.A. and Laker Andrew Bynum would be sent packing to Philadelphia.

How he plays on the court is one thing, but he let the kids in his basketball camp down, so as far as I'm concerned, Dwight, you're a complete LOSER.

Dwight is not in "serious negotiations" to become a Laker. The Magic are going to trade him. TMZ, you know nothing about sports, stick to gossip crap.
