I think if the Mavs don't re-sign J-Kidd they should go after Stephon Marbury or try to sign a young PG like Raymond Felton or Ramon Session. Second, the Mavs need to upgrade at the SG spot, they should try to get Stephen Jackson from the Warriors or try to get Jamal Crawford.

stephen jackson maybe would be a good fit.
raymond felton too if they pay him less than 7mil a season.

Jackson would be a great fit. Of all of the players that the Mavs have a realistic shot of acquiring, he intrigues me the most.

I just wonder what we would have to give up to get him. Might have to cut ties with Josh, even though I would like to keep him around to play alongside Jackson.

If GS wants to save money then a straight up swap of Stack for Jax would make sense. If they trade him before Aug.10 then they could buy him out for just 2 mil, not to mention all the tax relief.

Problem is that they just extended his contract, so I'm guessing they want him there long term.

I just can't figure out what GS wants to do exactly.

Are they in a rebuilding mode? If so, Jackson would be one of their biggest trading chips.

Or are they trying to win now? If they are, they haven't done a good job of it. If they are serious, why do they just overload their roster with players who can only shoot.


Stackhouse is definantly the Mavs biggest trading chip. His contract would be very appealing to teams looking to shed some payroll.

Dampier is also a huge expiring because his 2nd year is a team option. Considering how many teams want to save money or enter the 2010 sweepstakes, our team could significantly improve if the FO does their job.

I am so thrilled that Dampier is actually tradable for the first time in forever.

Now all of the pressure is on Donnie and Cuban to make it work this offseason. The days of kicking back and taking it slow are over. This team needs more than just a few minor tweaks, which is mostly all we have done the last few years. The time to win with Dirk is right now, as he is playing some of the best ball of his career. And since he turns 31 later this month, his time is not unlimited.

I will be furious as a fan if this roster does not appear to have any substantial improvement by the time training camp starts. We have a few bullets to fire, and a weakened economy that may allow us to be opportunistic.

I'm assuming you're talking about dampier. I'm not 100% sure about all of the details, but I believe that at least one of two things has to happen in order for his last year to be paid to him in full:

1. He must play in any three All-Star games from the 2004-2005 season through the 2009-2010 season.

2. His minutes must add up to at least 2,100 minutes in the 70 regular season games in the 2009-2010 season in which he plays the most minutes. And if he plays less than 70 games, then his minutes must be at least 2,100.

Neither of those has/will happen.

I'm not sure if Eddie Jordan wants to trade Brand, unless they just want to try and dump his big contract.

If traded, Brand would be welcomed here with open arms as the post-scorer we have never had and a solid 2nd option behind Dirk. Carlisle did a good job of utilizing the skills of his players and playing to their strengths, so he would find a way for Brand to fit in.

My biggest worry is if Brand is still capable of being effective after his injury.

I highly doubt Philly is shopping Brand already. One injury plagued season does not merit their huge signing of last year to be traded, just to save money when it was clear they wanted to spend.
