As a matter of fact they would most likely want to send Dwight to a perennial lottery team

so it's not the same as carmelo wanting to be a knicks and force them to trade him to the knicks only? since he wouldn't sign an extension anywhere else?

Knicks had the cap room to sign him as a free agent, the Lakers do not with Dwight Howard. That is the difference here. If LA is the only team he wants to go to then it means nothing because he can't end up there unless it's via trade.

Only way Laker fans do it is if it's Bynum for Howard straight up at the trade deadline, with the Magic having no other options.

Wrong completely. The hard cap won't be at 45 mill to start with (that number was scrapped long ago and it's more around high 50s low 60s. And at 45 mill hard cap all contracts currently above 9 million would go down to 9 million.

Wrong. The Lakers can cut Bynum and Odom after this year without any cap hit.
