    Default Bank of Mark Cuban open to raps?

    http://espn.go.com/dallas/nba/story/...ank-cuban-open Mark Cuban says he is looking to make deals before the trade deadline and he is not afraid to take on big money contracts. Maybe he might want Bargnani to play with Dirk. Do Dallas have anyone we want? Maybe we can get Vincent back to finish his career and mentor the young ones.

    What do you guys think?

    Poor choice of words on the last sentence there...

    Otherwise, Carter over Bargnani any day of the week for me right now. Carter has been pretty solid this season. Still has a lot of spring left.

    Did you mean something of this sort?

    I honestly don't see a Dallas-Toronto trade that would include Vince and AB that both teams could deem reasonable.

    Nobody wants Bargnani. We're stuck with him until he gets amnestied. Only way to trade him would be to include both JV and T. Ross in the trade.

    The only guy I'm interested in is Mayo, and I don't see Dallas letting him go.

    Honestly, there is nothing on the Mavs that interests me long term except Jae Crowder. They don't even have a first round draft pick to trade.

    If they were willing to take Bargnani or Kleiza for an expiring contract, then sure, sign me up. Somehow I don't think they would be as agreeable.

    Cuban is in a pickle because he has few desirable trade assets.

    Problem with Mayo is he is on a $4.2M player option for next season. It would be a shame to give up anything of value to have him leave.

    Seems like Cuban is running out of hope in landing a big time free agent like Howard or Paul so he's willing to now take on a big contract. Can't see them interested in a Raptor. Maybe Lowry but then they don't really have anything that I would want from them.

    Could be a good team to use as a facilitator but Dallas seems to always think big.

    Isn't this actually a bad thing for the Raptors because they are more likely to end up with the players we want, ie. Milsap, Big Al, Gay, Josh Smith etc.. They have positioned themselves to provide tax releif for any team looking to get under the salary cap haven't they?

    This is a very good point!

    Mayo for DeRozan straight up? I might be inclined to do that, considering Mayo has shown he has serious upside when taken out of a star's spotlight like Rudy Gay.

    A few years ago, I would've agreed. But Collison hasn't impressed me much since his rookie year.

    No way bro like Matt52 said Mayo has a player option and the end of the season and he is likely to skip town if (and likely when) the season ends up without a playoff showing.

    Crowder/Cunningham and that's about it. i really wanted BC to take Crowder with our second round pick if he was there.

    this is irrelevant point because the Raps are not going into the luxury tax any time soon and all the A-list players will command a near max salary, which we can't afford at this point; unless we amnesty Barny...

    orgy time: http://espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=brgrrhm

    Utah clears space for Favors/Kanter and get back a promising young big in Special Ed. They also shore up their PG position with JC (with Mo out they're starting Tinsley fer crying out loud!) and get a steady back up big rental in Kaman.

    Toronto gets back Millsap, who I think most of us would love to see here, and Collison who has been very hot n cold this year but is still young and has the physical tools to be a good defender, plus he's cheap.

    Mavs get Big Al Jeff. They keep most of their core but open up el banco di cuban for a legit 20/10 post presence who will take all kinds of pressure off of Dirk and likely be a huge asset in helping them to the dance.

    I love it.. would love to have Millsap and his Bird rights. A bit of a gamble since Millsap still might explore free agency and we could lose Ed for nothing, but I'd probably still do it.

    I'd like to trade for Cuban.
