The Mavericks obviously have an eye towards the future, as their moves this offseason would dictate. You have to ask yourself the question, will it all be worth it?
Looking at the Mavericks salary situation, following this year, assuming they amnesty Brendan Haywood and buy out Lamar Odom, they will have somewhere around 37 or 38 million dollars of cap space. If Deron Williams and Dwight both become free agents, the Mavericks should have enough cap space to sign both players. Is the fact that we have Dirk here in Dallas, enough to draw these two free agents in? Then there is the question of, will Dwight and Deron even reach free agency? It would appear that if the Nets or lLakers aquire Dwight in a trade, they will be able to offer Dwight a 5th year that the mavericks could not give him in free agency. This could be serious incentive for Dwight to resign with the team he was traded to. Will the Nets be good enough to convince these two players to stay in New Jersey, or will they look else where? Are the Lakers with Kobe Bryant more appealing to Dwight then a potential Dirk - Deron - Howard trio in Dallas? What do you guys think?
