What about S&T - Dirk for Chis Bosh ?
I think there is lots of prima facie evidence that Chris wants to be in Dallas.
I presume like most internationals - Dirk wont find Toronto a downer (possibly the opposite). He will most certainly want a bump and extension salary wise and Toronto can accomidate that. Leaving Dallas and the media frenzy regarding his emotional well being is probably good for him.
Finally - playing for Cuban the active GM and Coach "not on the bench" would have to wear thin. BColangelo seems to have a good reputation and I would assume that would attract Dirk.
This does presume that Cuban will pull this trigger - but there is smoke in those rumors as well. Cuban has never hesitated to tinker.
If CB4s and his agent wants this deal - I see it very likely. A good fit cause the cap numbers, the "extras" can all be minimized with a 1 for 1 sort of deal.
I see very little chance of this happening. Dirk has said he wants to win, and TOR couldn't even make the playoffs last year.
