    Default Someone else on Real GM thought of something I did, too.

    First of all, read this thread:

    I thought it was funny that they mentioned Jackson right off the bat. I'd been reading that Dallas was a little disenchanted with Marquis. Then to read that thread.

    So, since we like to throw stuff out to see what sticks, what would you say to this as one of two trades of our starters in the offseason? (I figure one packae to trade Jackson. One package to trade Tinsley.)

    Indiana Trade Breakdown

    Outgoing
    Stephen Jackson
    6-8 SG from Oak Hill Academy (HS)
    16.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 2.8 apg in 35.9 minutes
    Anthony Johnson
    6-3 PG from Charleston
    9.2 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 4.3 apg in 26.4 minutes
    Incoming
    Marquis Daniels
    6-6 SG from Auburn
    10.2 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 2.8 apg in 28.4 minutes
    DeSagana Diop
    7-0 C from Oak Hill Academy (HS)
    2.4 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 0.3 apg in 18.6 minutes


    Dallas Trade Breakdown

    Outgoing
    Marquis Daniels
    6-6 SG from Auburn
    10.2 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 2.8 apg in 28.4 minutes
    DeSagana Diop
    7-0 C from Oak Hill Academy (HS)
    2.4 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 0.3 apg in 18.6 minutes
    Incoming
    Stephen Jackson
    6-8 SG from Oak Hill Academy (HS)
    16.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 2.8 apg in 35.9 minutes
    Anthony Johnson
    6-3 PG from Charleston
    9.2 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 4.3 apg in 26.4 minutes


    Then we make one more trade using Jamaal as the core of the trade.

    I like Marquis Daniels. Getting him would be great.

    But why in the world do the Mavs do this deal? Why would they trade Diop? His defense has done well for them. And why do they need Anthony Johnson? They will likely re-sign Jason Terry and with Terry and Harris in the backcourt, they should be able to sign another point guard to be the backup, if Darrell Armstrong retires.

    I don't see why the Mavs do this trade. Maybe take out Diop and Johnson and the Mavs might do this deal.

    i doubt the mavs are willing to part with diop. they also don't really have a need for AJ. devin harris and terry eat up all the mins at PG.

    marquis daniels on the other hand is a guy i would love to have. he doesn't get the mins he deserves playing behind terry, stack, harris, and howard. we need a 2 guard like daniels who can defend and get other players involved.....not a streak shooter who needs to score to have an impact (jax).

    I would imagine the mavs would have more interest in foster than jax. he's the type of player avery johnson would like. van horn is a FA....so there might be some mins up front for a guy like foster. his salary matches daniels too.

    I'm not sure I want Daniels. He doesn't seem like the type of player that would fit in our system or rather the system we want.

    The real laugher in the thread you linked was someone suggesting Jackson + 17th pick for Daniels and 28th pick. I about choked when I read that because no way the pacers would do that trade.

    We have a better chance of getting Tim Duncan than we do Diop in a Steve Jackson/Anthony Johnson trade with Dallas.

    To think that we could have just SIGNED Diop last season.

    If I were the GM, it would have happened. Darnit Donnie!
