Mavericks Continue To Assess Trade Options
Amid a 2-8 slide that coincided with injuries to Dirk Nowitzki and Caron Butler, the Mavericks have continued to assess trade options through discussions with numerous teams.
Dallas, however, would prefer to see how the team looks with a healthy Nowitzki, who returned over the weekend, before they decide if they need to make a deal to replace Butler, who is out for the season.
Marc Stein of ESPN.com lists, Stephen Jackson, Tayshaun Prince, J.R. Smith, Corey Maggette and Devin Harris as possible options for the Mavericks.
Harris would only be a possibility if he lands in Denver as part of the three-team trade that would send Carmelo Anthony to New Jersey.
