Mavs want Johnson

http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news;_ylt=An.pYeWXI8yLtw3Qa9s8Aeg5nYcB?slug=...

Mavs want to S&T for Joe Johnson...

What do you think they'll give up?

Also if they get Joe Johnson and sign Shaq (which is my prediction) are they right on pace with LA in the West?

If they happen to get Johnson

If they happen to get Johnson and Shaq then I'd say their are on the right pace with LA.

To get Johnson, I see maybe a trade of Caron Butler and Erick Dampier for JJ?

maybe throw in Roddy Beaubois

maybe throw in Roddy Beaubois but I doubt it, Mark Cuban is ridiculously high on him, as he should be.

The issue I see is Dallas

The issue I see is Dallas would have to give up picks and they lack that and pieces Atlanta would need IMO

They don't need a PG because you have Jeff Teague who Larry Drew said might start next season.

It all depends on Josh

It all depends on Josh Smith's jumpshot. If it improves, they can finally put him at SF and move Al to his PF position. Crawsover (Jamal Crawford) plays the 2 guard and they can use Dampier. Fast line-up with Teague, Crawsover, J-Smoove, and Horford.

True. I think they would want

True. I think they would want Dampier.

Would 2011, 2012 1st rounders, Dampier and Najera for Joe Johnson do the trick?

I added 2 1st rounders because odds are they will be in the 23-30 range.

Then Caron Butler could fill

Then Caron Butler could fill that void. Move Crawsover back to 6th man.

To me Roddy would have to be

To me Roddy would have to be included as well as Butler. Butler is an expiring contract but a good one at that, the Mavs would need to send him in order to match the salaries as well as give the Hawks something they may actually want.

The issue is where would

The issue is where would Roddy Fit? Plus, maybe Butler but I liked him when he was underrated, now he's overrated.

I don't think they would they would take that trade. Maybe if their throw in Rodrique Beaubois.

Roddy is a nice addition off

Roddy is a nice addition off the bench. A real spark. 8ppg in 12mpg?

Maybe next years and a future

Maybe next years and a future 1st round pick. (ala Detroit Pistons, even though they drafted Darko)

Why wouldn't they take that

Why wouldn't they take that trade If they think they might lose Johnson in FA anyway?

The Hawks could possibly lose him and get nothing of value back in return. Getting Butler and a center like Dampier would allow the Hawks to stay near the top of the Eastern conference race.

I don't think you guys

I don't think you guys understand.

Sign and Trade means Johnson picks the team, and the Hawks take what scraps they can get that will help them. It won't be this ultra-fair deal. Hawks don't pick what team they're working with nor do they really get their choice of players in return (Obviously, they won't take bums with big contracts) but it could end up being only Dampier. That leaves the Hawks one Center better than they would be with no S&T.

The sign and trades from last

The sign and trades from last year:

Toronto signs and trades Shawn Marion, Nathan Jawai, and Kris Humphries to Dallas and a 2016 second round pick to Memphis;

Orlando signs and trades Hedo Turkoglu to Toronto for cash;

I don't think they want to

I don't think they want to give up Damp, he gives a lot of depth at center and doesn't get injured. They would probably give up Marion and some fillers. And no way would they give up Roddy Beaubois, sign and trades are never fair.
