DallasBasketball.com, the independent Mavericks site with good sources in the Mavs front office, details the team's master plan for the off-season which begins with signing Deron WIlliams and ends with somehow acquiring Dwight Howard. Both of course are the Nets off-season targets as well.

In the plan, laid out Friday, writer David Lord writes that after re-working their deal with Lamar Odom to give them cap space, the Mavs would move on D-WIll. "The Mavs’ preference, if/when they get a commitment from Deron, is not to clear out a bunch of cap room, but rather to get him to Dallas in a way where they never clear out cap room and stay way over the cap. That would entail a sign-and-trade of DWill from the Nets."

In such an s&t, the Mavs might offer the Nets "trade pieces like Roddy (Rodrigue Beaubois), DoJo (Dominique Jones), a pick (they have #17 in this year's draft), or the like, and nothing more." In a second proposed s&t, a three team deal, "Odom gets sent to the Lakers, Roddy B and (Vince) Carter go to some team like Sacramento or Toronto, and a pick goes to the Nets (who might also get a giant $17.2 million trade exception.)" Problem with both scenarios: Nets have said they're not interested in a sign-and-trade. They would want the cap space. Besides, they remain confident they'll retain D-Will.
