BREAKING NEWS: Denver among the 20 finalist cities for Amazon's second headquarters (Full Story)

DENVER (CBS4)– Andre Iguodala is an All Star and an Olympian and now he’s about to come to become a member of the Denver Nuggets.

76ers forward Iguodala is a key part of a four team blockbuster trade involving eight players with Orlando, Philadelphia and the Los Angeles Lakers.

To facilitate the trade the Nuggets sent guard Arron Afflalo and Al Harrington and a 2014 draft pick to the Orlando Magic.

The four team deal was necessary for Orlando to meet center Dwight Howard’s request to be traded to a contender. Howard had initially requested to be traded to the Brooklyn Nets but the two teams could not reach a deal.

The Lakers began aggressive negotiations earlier this week to find a way to sign Howard, the NBA’s most coveted center.

A conference call was set up for Friday involving team representatives and league officials. Teams are required to get league approval once they have agreed upon the terms of a deal.
