Can the Mavs Get Shawn Marion?

In order for The Matrix to land in Dallas, another team will have to get involved: “The Dallas Mavericks may be one of the NBA teams that helps Bryan Colangelo be creative and help out a soon-to-be ex-Raptor, but there will have to be another team involved…Getting three teams involved in any transaction under the NBA’s arcane salary cap rules is dicey at the best of times. When a team like Toronto needs to come out of a deal without assuming any salary, it complicates matters even more. The Mavs, according to league sources, are dangling the contract of Jerry Stackhouse because it carries only a $2 million guarantee. However, those sources said Toronto, which needs to divest itself of Marion’s contract to have money to pay Turkoglu, can’t even handle that relative pittance.”

    i cant even do that in 2k9 what chance do they have?

  • a_whiteman

    They can handle the money, MLSE (the owners) would rather put that 2 milly to their hockey team that was even worse then the raps last year.

    haha doesnt seem like its gonna happen, but as a raptors fan i would be pumped if it did. any depth we can get right now at that position is good and jerry stackhouse would be VERR NICE!

    It’s not like Stack is ever going to play a minute in Toronto – but if you really like him that much, you might also want to trade Bosh for Ben Wallace…

  • wassup

    man if he was one of those guys who refused to play somewhere i would be disgusted, those people are spoiled rotten.

  • Josh D

    Whats the point in getting him, he’ll get bored with his new team after 2 days

  • wassup

    i just heard somewhere he wouldnt be playin for toronto if this happened, he would get waived as soon as he got there and the raptors would save 5 million bones.

  • tom
