We have a recent history of making trades with Dallas. I figure we can continue that trend this year once the season is over.

Troy Murphy 2 yr, 23.0M
$3M Cash
Rescind the rights on the 2nd Round pick they owe us


Erick Dampier 2 yr, 25.2M

In this deal, we trade Murphy's expiring contract to Dallas for Dampier's non-guaranteed final year. We take 12M off our books for next year by cutting Dampier. We send them $3M cash to cover some of Murphy's cost next year. They also get just over $1M off their cap figure which saves them $2M. Murphy will cost them some in LT next year, but they will end up spending that money anyway with Cuban there. They don't have any room to make a splash in free agency other than re-signing Haywood. They get to keep their second rounder so they can fill their 13th roster spot with a rookie at ~500k.

I think we would definitely take back a guy like Barea or Beaubois to help them shed more salary, but they would have to be willing to get rid of one of them. We could send them Soloman Jones if they are looking for more depth in their front court for one of their young PG's.
