Mavs eyeing Davis, Camby, Kaman
Atlanta looking to deal Marvin Williams and Acie Law?Mavs eyeing Davis, Camby, Kaman
The Mavericks will be one of 29 teams in contact with the Clippers about everything from their bevy of big men to the No. 1 pick and Davis, who is under contract for four more seasons at more than $60 million.
The Mavericks first must address the Jason Kidd issue. If they re-sign him, Davis would become a nonfactor, unless a third team were involved.
But a player like Camby or Kaman, who played with Dirk Nowitzki on the German national team in last year’s Olympics, would make a lot of sense for the Mavericks.
There will be no shortage of competition, however, particularly from Oklahoma City, which has the third pick in the draft. The Thunder is expected to make a play for Griffin, using the third pick and one of their young core players (Jeff Green or Russell Westbrook) as bait for the top overall pick, which would allow them to keep Griffin in his hometown.
HoopsWorld is reporting that Atlanta is looking to deal Marvin Williams and Acie Law.
“The Hawks have key free agents in point guard Mike Bibby, small forward Marvin Williams, and center Zaza Pachulia, as well as Solomon Jones, Mario West, and Thomas Gardner.
As of now, Atlanta has only $40.8 million in committed salary next season, but it remains to be seen whether the fiscally challenged ownership will do what it takes to bring back Bibby, Williams, and Pachulia, or bring in some notable free agents.
There have been rumors of Williams being dangled in a sign-and-trade for cash. Don’t be surprised if talented yet unused guard Acie Law , the 11th overall pick in the 2007 draft, is moved, too.”
