So what's your move?

So basically this is an impossible situation for Mitch and Jimbo.
IMO the only thing that is unacceptable, is letting him go for nothing. Obviously, Mitch and Jimbo are a lot more in the loop regarding Howard and what the odds are of him staying so if they believe he will stay, then they shouldn't trade him. But, to me it sure looks like he doesn't like it here.

He came back too early and doomed this season. Then again, Bynum still hasn't played so the Lakers still got the better side of the deal.
I believe despite what has happened and the things going on with Kobe the only reason he wouldn't re-sign is because of D'Antoni. He completely negates what Dwight does. He doesn't coach defense and doesn't like to post up. Otherwise, Dwight clearly likes to live in LA, loves the attention, and probably sees that this would be his team for the rest of his career.

Firstly you don't know if he is leaving or staying he hasn't said he is going so their is a chance he will stay, however if you trade him then he is 100% gone.
Secondly you can't get anywhere near his value in a trade, so trade him or let him walk you still lose. The value you get for him will be further reduced because teams your trading with know your desparate so they will lower their offers.
A good analogy would be if you injured your leg in a car accident and the doctors say they have done everything they can to save the leg but there is still a chance you will lose your leg but they will only know in about 4 weeks time. The doctors then give you two choices:
First choice: They amputate your leg now, there is a chance your leg will be saved but there is no guarantee and it will cost alot of money. However if they amputate now you can save alot of money to be able to get a better prosthetic leg with the money.
Second choice: You wait, you might lose your leg it will cost alot of money and you will be left with an inferior replacement but then there is a chance you keep your leg.
Which would you choose? I would choose option 2, sure with option 1 i get a good replacement but it will never be as good as my real leg. If there is even a chance I keep my original leg I am taking it.
