This could work out well as we could be in a realistic position to sign 2 superstars with Dirk as our 3rd option.
I just dont know where these two mysterious UFAs come from. Mavs have never signed one. I hope that Bynum or Howard or Paul will move. I dont see good reasons for them given the new rules and the teams they are currently playing for.
Agree but my main point is that I don't want to see the Mavs vastly overpay just to see Dirk retire as a Mav.
At some point in the near future this team needs to move forward with a different superstar.
There are basically 3 ways to land a superstar:
1. Free Agency
Trade is the only thing that has worked for this organization in the Cuban era so our best bet is to trade for one and then have the opportunity to resign at a max deal.
If Dirk is signed to a huge contract and the plan is to see him retire as a Mav, that limits our ability to make decent trades and acquire the right trade pieces to land a superstar.
My other point is that if we are in a position to sign a pair that want to play together (like DWill/D12 wanted) it could still be a decent situation with Dirk as a hopefully cheap 3rd option.
But I agree there will be few opportunities (if any) to land superstars going forward no matter what decisions are made with Dirk.
