They have already stated that Butler will start at the 2. Rip would not benefit the Mavericks and it would be rediculous for the Mavs to trade for him. Yes Dampier is hurt but that is not reason enough to trade him. of the top of my head, he is probably the best backup center in the league when healthy, AND has and expiring contract.
