NBA PM: The Mavericks' Next Trade?

When the Dallas Mavericks’ season ended at the hands of the Denver Nuggets in the second round of the NBA Playoffs, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban vowed that, economy be damned, he was going to add an All-Star and make sure the Mavs would be back with a vengeance in 2009-2010. On Wednesday morning, after hours of negotiations and sessions of numbers-crunching that would have given Albert Einstein a headache, the Cuban’s front office staff delivered on his promise of a couple months go.It took four teams to get it done, but the Mavericks have acquired All-Star small forward Shawn Marion from the Toronto Raptors in a deal that also landed forward Kris Humphries, center Nathan Jawai and cash considerations from the Raptors and guard Greg Buckner from the Memphis Grizzlies, sending guard Antoine Wright and forward Devean George to Toronto and guard Jerry Stackhouse and cash considerations to Memphis. Additionally, Memphis obtains a second round pick and cash considerations from Toronto, while Orlando trades Hedo Turkoglu to Toronto for cash considerations from Dallas and Toronto.
