Of course I have no proof, but I believe the Mavs were gearing up for a run at Deron Williams next season. I think their desire to land Devin Harris without surrendering more than Caron Butler's expiring deal was all about acquiring Deron Williams. I believe the Mavs knew that Utah liked Devin Harris and felt that a package of Harris, Beaubois, and two first-rounders would have brought them Williams. Missing out on Harris likely ends any possibility of the Mavs landing Deron Williams in a trade. Did anyone else out there get the same feeling about this?
