There may be indications that Mitch Kupchak GM of the Los Angeles Lakers, has a plan B already in place and may pull the plan b trigger sooner than later. The Los Angeles Lakers have a history of going after a "Sure Thing Deal" as far as free agents and draft picks are concerned. The short meeting that Kupchak and Howard had over the weekend may be a sign that Kupchak has a plan B in place and is ready to make another move.
Jim Buss is not going to sit around and wait for Howard. With the drafting of R Kelly who will see alot of playing time in a D'Antoni system, it looks like Plan B may be going into action.
