Over the next 5+ years, a GM would be silly to choose Luongo over Howard. And this isn't even factoring contracts
I do think people in Detroit should start preparing for Howard to make around 5 million depending on CBA. So his contract is a big steal this year, but they will probably be close in terms of cap hit soon. I still would take Howard for the younger factor.
