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.
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?
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.
