Who would they target in 2014? I don't see you as being one of the delusional people who think LeBron is a realistic possibility and Wade wouldn't leave Miami either. Even though they're really good friends, I can't see Carmelo leaving the Knicks to join a 36 year old Kobe in LA. Bosh is possible but we already know you can't build a team around him.

Howard has been a complete disaster with the Lakers and it doesn't sound like he really wants to re-sign there but he might be the best option going forward. A guy like Carmelo or even LeBron would probably be more willing to sign with the Lakers if they had Howard.

I think any team that has the cap space will still offer him the max. They might regret it later but they would still do it and just hope his struggles this season are because of the back injury or because of Kobe/D'Antoni.
