This is a sign and trade deal.

Re-signed Brandon Bass
Jerry Stackhouse

for

Troy Murphy

This deal makes a ton of sense for us. We cut about 5M in salary by cutting Stack, and sign Brandon Bass to a 4 year deal worth roughly 20M.

It also allows us to re-sign Jack without any issues. Troy would actually fit in well with the Mavs because it is another player to space the floor for Dirk and Josh, who both excel at getting into the lane. Murphy would get a ton of rebounds next to Dampier (who I don't think is realistically getting traded) and Dirk. I think it would be a nice fit against a team like the Lakers, who throw three big men at you at a time. It would cause a lot of problems defensively for other teams.

Ouch.. Dirk and Troy in the frontcourt sounds like a massacre to me. No interior D.

Makes a lot of sense for us, none for Dallas

I think it does a lot for Dallas. It makes their second team consist of Jason Terry, Troy Murphy, Marcin Gortat, JJ Barea, and A. Wright/M. Carroll. Assuming they get a deal for Marion, this team got a lot deeper real quick. Troy and Terry would light the other teams up.
