    You know what, I'm actually happy for Marquis. He showed flashes of being a very good player, but he just isn't a good fit/used well in the Mavs system. As much as I wanted him in Dallas, I'm glad he is getting a better opportunity now. Dallas now gets a spot up shooter that it desperately needs

    WTF? Is this one of those fake articles, god I hope so for the Mavs sakes. This deal makes no sense for the Mavs, unless they wanted to dump Daniels, but besides, you could get a much better player for Daniles.

    I would've thought Marquis was worth more than that. Just have to trust Donnie and Avery know what they are doing.

    They did get an experir for a 4 yr deal. So maybe Cuban is trying to open up some money for next yr so he can get a FA. Plus they drafted Daniels replacement.

    this trade aint bad at all. Dallas has always been lookin to have a big guy to stretch the floor against soft teams so that dirk can drive and also to stretch the defense when Dirk's on the floor... and it turns out Van Horn in fact sucks. Croshere doesn't. He's a good player. Hits open shots, plays hard, can even slash a little, plays hard, and rebounds. And he never misses FTs.

    I'm guessing they simply couldn't find another deal and want a one year rental of KVH... or, they're looking to package that expirer in a deal for a serious player.

    Plus, with cap space or a huge pair of expiring deal, they can actually look to sign some star. Paul Pierce?

    First off, Terry/Dirk/Dampier must make atleast 35 million dollars all together, not to mention resigning Howard.

    Is that all Quis was worth? I thought they'd be able to get more for him.

    So you won't give up Howard for a chance at Paul Pierce or Vince Carter?

    More like 31 mil if Terry's new deal starts at 8 mil.

    I actually like the deal for the mavs after reading some of your input. They can do more with the cap space signing a big player next year with Croshere and Stack expiring than they could with Daniels as a player.

    Is Dallas really still paying Finley?

    After this year (according to that link), Dallas owes:

    17M for Finley
    16M for Dirk
    10M for Dampier
    4M for Harris
    2M for Bradley (he's still on the payroll?)
    2M for Diop

    And Josh Howard is a restricted Free Agent.

    Terry has a 6 year $50M deal. NBA deals are usually back loaded. So that's about 6 or 7M for Terry at the end of the season.

    What's the current cap?

    Edit: The Current cap is about $55 Million.

    If Dallas is paying for Finley, they will still be over the cap after this season.
