Apparently the Mavericks are looking to send off new acquisition(s) Malik Allen and/or Antione Wright for Mike Miller.

That probably hinges on sending off the KVH contract the Mavs still hold the rights to. I would love to get Miller in blue and green.

If today's events parlay into getting him, the Mavericks will have given up Devin and Diop (Ager and George don't matter) for Kidd and Miller. I can definitely live with that.

I would have loved the Nets to toss in Sean Williams. I went to high school with that guy.

I was reading that if they had sent just Harris, Van Horn's contract, and filler, the luxury tax would've been insane - upwards of $40 million.

If your Mavs can get Mike Miller, that would be extremely good. I'm surprised the Suns didn't make a play for him earlier.

Miller is definitely the big prize right now in my eyes. Unfortunately, ESPN's Trade Machine doesn't have updated rosters yet, so I can't try to finagle a working trade for him and his nasty hair.

I've been thinking more about getting Kidd, though, and I'm getting more optimistic. I'm starting to think the Mavs have a better chance to win a championship now than they did this morning.

That needed team needed to blow up sooner than later.

Good to see Dwight Howard have his double-double (10 pts/12 boards + 2 blocks) by halftime. It's amazing seeing him play any chance I get to go to a game.

Guys who played DIII and now play in the NBA should not have this much power.

I watched the Warriors/Suns game tonight and, as much as I hate run and gun basketball, it was damn exciting.

Here's hoping they meet in the first round.

don't hate on DIII players

devan george certainly has balls. i mean you're denying your team of a hall of fame point guard so that you can make an extra million dollars with your larry bird rights? a) your teammates are going to hate you, b) you honestly think cuban's gonna bring this guy back now after he pulled this?

he's a douche.

basketball where people actually score sucks. 71-65 is much better on the eyes.

Devean George went scoreless in the first half, missing six shots from the floor (three 3-pointes) and a pair of free throws. He did contribute a couple assists and a steal to the Mavs' cause.

Maybe George is trying to prove to the Mavs' brass that he can shoot like Jason Kidd.

I don't quite get the Larry Bird exemption thing because that's exactly it, no way they bring him back after this. I'm guessing it's more like "I don't want to play for the shitty Nets, at least if Kidd was still there I might get the ball on occasion, but with him gone it's gonna be all Vince all the time".

So does he actually have the power to block this, or is it more like "I won't report and/or I'll make a complete asshole of myself if this happens". Because I thought I remember where Kobe had THE ONLY NO TRADE IN THE NBA!!!!!11!

Ah the joy of being a pro athlete. You want to get traded, the fans boo you and you're a douche. If you don't want to get traded, surprise, the fans boo you and you're a douche.

Edit: Never mind, I guess he can actually block it. So why doesn't somebody figure out exactly how much he stands to lose (nothing because Dallas won't re-sign him anyway) or why doesn't Cuban come to some agreement with him money-wise and just pay him to let the trade happen, just like no-trades are bought out in other sports. I'm sure Cubes has a million in his couch cushions that he could stand to part with.

The cap is a pain in the ass

That's a little extreme. I just don't like watching people chuck shots around all day.

Sources say the Kidd deal is still alive.

They say that the Mavs are still working on George to change his mind, and that the other option the Mavs are looking at is getting Keith Van Horn to facilitate this by signing off on a sign-and-trade deal...this is possible because although he hasn't played in a year, the Mavs still have his bird rights. I guess the idea would be that KVH would sign a one year deal so that the Nets would just be taking back an expiring...KVH definitely isn't playing for anyone this season.

Reportedly Mark Cuban is hesitant to use KVH, having even said a while ago that he would use KVH to trade for anyone at any time. It it said that in light of the George situation, Cuban is reconsidering using KVH.

I don't understand why Cuban is hesitant. Would KVH actually say no to the question 'Hey, would you like a bunch of money for doing absolutely nothing'?
