INSIDEHOOPS.COM RUMORS PAGE: Mavs are making a push to acquire Kenyon Martin, but the Nuggets are said to want Stackhouse to fill their SG needs. This trade would be good for the Nuggets especially as they would get rid of a player who caused them nothing but trouble, and acquire a player that actually fits a team need. I'm not quite sure if this has been talked about anywhere else, but what do y'all think about this potential trade, and if not Stackhouse, who could the Mavs put together to acquire Martin?

It leaves the Mavs very short at guard (they must be sure they can get Mike James), but thats still an undersized backcourt. Martin and Dirk? How do they mesh?
I was thinking the same thing, but if you got a small front court, if they get beat by the offensive player, than atleast theres 2 bigs in the paint to swat their ****. I thnik this might only go down if they do get Mike James. Also if this doesn't go down, am I the only person that thinks Stack should be starting at the off guard for the Mavs, and at the very least be the 3rd option, he should be the second, but he's still a very good player when given the time.
If the Mavs do go through with this trade I think they will regret it. KMart is a system type player. He is not at his best with his back to the basket and has not yet developed a consistent jumper. He needs to be on a team that consistently pushes the ball up the court, like he had it with the Nets or how the Suns play. If the Mavs are going to play that style consistently I think it will work.
I was thinking a scenario where Dirk would play the center on defence, because he can, and Martin would play the post of offence, leaving Dirk to be matched up with bigger slower centers having to come out on the perimeter, opening the lane up.
they def. need to do that trade. i mean martin had a pretty good season last year and shot close to 50 percent, and I would get rid of stackhoue in a heartbeat. He is too inconsisent and makes bone head plays. I think Dirk could play a lil bit of 5 4 and 3, to accomidate martin. Plus the mavs get tougher inside with martin.
