I don't think that the answer to the problem with the Mavs is getting rid of Dirk.
But a lot of people seem to think that's part of the solution. And while Cuban has professed his love for Dirk, Dirk is also one of Nellie's guys, and almost the rest of the Nellie guys have been shipped out.
Meanwhile, Kevin Garnett is able to opt out of his deal after the 2007-08 season, which makes Minnesota particularly motivated to move him this summer.
I have to wonder if we're going to start hearing Garnett/Dirk trade rumors soon. RealGM's trade checker says that Dirk and Terry for Garnett and Madsen works under the cap.
