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.”
