If I were Mavs GM....

First and foremost..


Antione Wright

Tyronne Lue

JJ Barea

Sign(mid level exception):

Mickael Pietrus

Stromile Swift


Josh Howard for Shawn Marion(Sign and Trade)


Pietrus brings us what we need from the shooting guard position, he can shoot the three and he drives the ball.  He has the size and body to start for us.  He isn't a perfect SG, but he can fill the hole at part of the mid level exception.

Swift is a player I really like.  He is one of the most athletic centers in the league, and he can score the ball as well.  He would be able to defend the athletic bigs such as Amare which the Mavs lacked after giving up Diop.

Shawn Marion might want to be the star of a team, but he loved playing for Kidd and he knows he will get the ball in good positions on the floor from Kidd.  He would be the number 2 guy with Dirk, and he would still be able to average 20 points a game.  He knows how to play with Kidd, the running style offense is the type he is good in. 

Adding these players makes this offense more athletic, fast, and quick.  These players thrive by running down the court on fast break, which Kidd is more than capable of setting them up.
