Oh great, now the Dwightmare is coming to complicate the Doc Indecision.

As if this wasn't complicated enough. Hold onto your hats folks.

Dwight Howard, Chris Paul want to team up in free agency, according to report - SBNation.com

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. A sign-and-trade deal to send Howard to the Clippers is a possibility, as they could offer high-quality players like Blake Griffin and Eric Bledsoe in return. There are a few other options around the NBA as well.
