Yao Ming - Definitely not available. Has a good low post game though.
Dwight Howard - Definitely not available. He doesn't have a very good low post game, although he has heaps of potential.
Carlos Boozer - Good low post game, however he's a bit of a matador on defense and doesn't play centre.
Eddie Curry - Good low post game, but plays no defense whatsoever and can't rebound either. I can pretty much guarantee that he won't win a championship.
Nene - Good, young player that Dallas should target. Although he has a large contract and is coming off a knee injury. What pieces do Dallas have to get him though?
Tyson Chandler - Yeah, he really has a legitimate low post game. The guy didn't even average 10 points a game.
Chris Bosh - Definitely not available. Toronto's franchise player.
Elton Brand - Too undersized to play centre. Good low post game though.
Samuel Dalambert - Doesn't have a low post game.
Chris Kaman - Has regressed quite a bit since getting his contract
Al Jefferson - Although a bit undersized to play centre would be an alright fit for Dallas. However, if Minny just traded KG to get him what makes you think they'd give him up.
Zach Randolph - Undersized to play centre, also a bit of a questionable guy. Again he doesn't play much defense.
Pau Gasol - Decent low post game. Someone Dallas should target.
Emeka Okafor - Charlottes franchise player. No chance of a trade.
The rest of your list - unproven rookies who haven't done much of anything yet.

So looking at your list there's Nene, Pau Gasol, maybe EB and Al jefferson. So that's 4 players and how exactly would Dallas be able to get them. And if they traded Dirk straight up for one of them, how many do you think would a championship? Another great list mate.

First of all who told you this list was to find out what is available, I was replying to someone that was talking about lack of post up guys.
By the way the point of this thread is to state that you cannot build a team around a shooting power forward like Dirk is, with no post up threat. Yi has Bogut, Barganni has Bosh, and Dirk has ? .
That's the point.
