As title says...should LA consider trading Howard? Maybe trade Howard for Nowitzki and picks? Having a line up of Nash, Bryant, Peace, Nowitzki, Gasol might be perfect for D'antoni's system. A stretch four in nowitizki, who's pick and roll with Nash would be deadly and would give Gasol more room to operate in the post as a center. With nowitzki, they would be in contention possibly this and next season, at which time, Kobe, Gasol and Nowitzki would be free agents and a guy by the name of Lebron could be a free agent.
