After another failed attempt at capturing an elusive NBA championship, the Orlando Magic will enter an offseason filled with uncertainty.

The most compelling question is, of course, All-NBA center Dwight Howard's future within the organization. While many speculate that Howard will ultimately stay in the city that drafted him with the first overall pick in the 2004 Draft, Magic CEO Alex Martins did confirm that Orlando will search for a new option at center if the perennial All-Star doesn't sign a long-term contract.

"If he decides not to sign an extension, then we're going to make decisions necessary so we don't go through a season like we went through this year," Martins said.

After a season-ending surgery to repair a herniated disk, numerous scuffles with management and a less than stellar relationship with coach Stan Van Gundy, Howard's tenure in Orlando may be coming to a close in just a few weeks. After all, it has become painfully obvious for the city of Orlando that Howard simply doesn't want to be in a Magic uniform if no immediate trade occurs to snag a second star.

But with few valuable trade assets and an already large financial commitment for next season, it is quite unlikely that Orlando can acquire another superstar to appease their current one.

Nonetheless, Orlando will have to make a difficult decision in the coming days that will alter the franchise's course entirely. If the Magic decide to ship the top-tier center, who will go all-in to snag him?

Well, the subsequent slides will list and examine the 10 teams who may blow up their rosters to obtain "Superman."
