Then ask for Dirk straight up, or even Yao straight up. Baron is still a top-ten guy at this point, so get that much value for him in return. You need to win in terms of value in this kind of situation, because its him coming to you in desperation, and he needs to make the call in terms of making a sacrifice. If he keeps rejecting deals where you are getting great value in return, keep in mind that you're not the desperate one and cut off negotiations with him. When/if he realizes he needs that elite pg, he'll be ready to deal for him no matter what.
