Rumor Mill: Jason Terry for a Top Ten Pick (Noah?)

Mavs Want Noah?

Hey rumors are fun, but this one doesn't seem to make sense for anyone involved.
Dallas is inquiring about the possibility of making a move into the top 10, likely in hopes of landing Joakim Noah. Their main trade bait is Jason Terry. Boston and Minnesota are two teams in particular who could have some use for a very efficient 17 ppg scorer.
Now sure, Noah seems like exactly the kind of player the Mavs needed against Golden State, but that's exactly why this rumor sounds like overreaction speculation. And do the Mavs really want to take on the dead weight contract that would be required to make it work?
