Mavs Clear More Cap Space For 2012

The Dallas Mavericks made a relatively minor trade on Tuesday, sending Rudy Fernandez and Corey Brewer to Denver. The deal doesn't affect the Nuggets' ability to re-sign Nene, but it does give the Mavs about $3 million more of cap space in 2012, when they aim to sign a big free agent, like Deron Williams.

"Mavs lining up their ducks to be major player in 2012 free agency. Will be in play for both DWill and D12," tweets David Aldridge. "Mavericks are clearly going all in for Deron Williams and the summer of 2012," adds Chris Mannix.

If Dallas were to waive Lamar Odom and use the amnesty clause on Shawn Marion or Brendan Haywood next summer, they'd have about $22 million in cap space. They'd have to trade Marion or Haywood to come close to having enough space to add two max free agents next to Dirk Nowitzki.
