Are the Mavs really a much better option for DWill?

Dirk Nowitski 21.2ppg 6.5 rpg 46fg% about to be 34 mostly everyone is aging on that team and there is no guarantee they will get out of the west in the next few years with the thunder young elite talent.

On the other hand you have young talent on the nets and a city (NYC) that sells itself. I"m sure a healthy Brook Lopez can put up the same numbers that Dirk is putting up this year with the exception of the 3p% and he is 10 years younger!

Why wouldn't Dwill give himself a chance to go to win for a longer span of time? DWill's games is one that does well with aging, he shoots well, passes well and has a big body at his position so the drop off to his game should come later than the average player. It only makes sense for him to try to compete with the team we have now (especially if Wallace stays) rather than go to Dallas and rebuild a championship team with an aging superstar that has 2 elite seasons left at most.

While Dallas is a great city it doesnt compare to NYC so the recruiting the next group of elite free agents will not be difficult 2 or 3 years down the line especially if we put a decent product on the floor for the next two year.

The point is theres a small window of opportunity with he Mavs as opposed to a large window of opportunity with the Nets. The Mavs only have Dirk and will not be able to get 2 big free agents unless they make a ton of cap space which will be very difficult. So unless they make that happen they will have to compete with the thunder, heat, lakers, clippers, and whoever else emerges.

I would like some opinions, especially from those who keep saying that DWill is definitely gone after this season because I really think his reason for staying are greater than those for leaving.
