The Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers hold the respective Bird Rights to Paul and Howard, which means they can offer significantly more money and more years on a new max contract than any other NBA team, but neither franchise has the cap space to sign both players.

There are a few other options around the NBA as well.
