2. Dwight Howard
Despite the hoopla surrounding this summer's megatrade, Howard is no sure thing to re-sign in L.A. The 6-foot-11 center will definitely wait until next summer to sign a contract as he can potentially earn $40 million more then, but it's hard to see him leaving the Lakers if they can even come close to their vast potential. A lock for Defensive Player of the Year when healthy, the 26-year-old said there's currently no timetable for his return from back surgery.
