Dwight Howard, without a doubt, is the biggest target on this list. He is the best center to play in the league since Shaq in his prime, and nobody currently in the league brings the kind of defensive presence that he does. Heck, he turned a starting lineup with Jameer Nelson, Jason Richardson, Hedo Turkoglu and Brandon Bass into the fourth best defensive team in the league.
He may want to stay in Orlando, but he may also want to go to a team where he can't be constantly double and triple teamed. The current Magic roster minus Howard would absolutely be in the cellar of the standings.
The question is; will the Magic trade him to receive value in return, or play out the season and try to sign him in the offseason?
A package featuring Andrew Bynum is appealing, but might not be enough.
The Warriors have been rumored to have interest, but that is unlikely that will get done.
The Boston Celtics will give it a shot if he is available as a free agent.
The Knicks could give it a run in free agency as well, but might not be able to afford him with Melo and Stoudemire also on the books.
Dwight Howard is the big prize here, and his decision will have a huge impact on the league for years to come.
