Why not? Kobe obviously is more comfortable with Bynum and the Lakers cant afford losing Howard this summer with no return. The Sixers could use a guy who has functioning knees. Both are free agents come June and would like max deals. Do the lakers want to invest in a guy who doesn't mesh with the team, can the sixers invest in a guy who has yet to play in red, white, and blue? No chance of happening but just a thought.
