Do the Lakers need to trade for Dwight Howard? Can't they just wait and sign him after next season?

 

If the Magic try to get the Lakers to give up too much for Howard, can't the Lakers just say we'll wait and sign Howard during free agency after next season, and we won't have to give up anything? 

 I mention this is because the Lakers have a TEAM opton for Bynum in 2012. So can't the Lakers choose to release Bynum after next season, and wouldn't that free up enough cap space to sign Howard in the summer of 2012?  Capologists please help!

The Lakers shouldn't gut the team for Howard. If after a trade with the Magic, if the Lakers are left with just an aging Kobe, Howard and some weak parts surrounding them that won't be enough to win big.
