How is this for a scenario?

Mavs trade 1st Rounder, Van Excel & Finley for KG
Sign Lewis to the Mid-level exception

PG: Nash
SG: Lewis
SF: KG
PF: Dirk
C: Bradley?????


Then the BULLS get Wally for Bags!!!

does that work Salary wise? we know that Cuban wouldn't think twice about paying KG. or even giving him ANOTHER 7 year deal with salary increases (~ 160 million)

but does that really work for the Wolves?

Van Exel/Brandon
Finley/Peeler
Wally
Smith/Jackson
Rasho/Woods

that's not a bad team... but not a championship team (ihmo)

i dunno, i s'pose it's possible. but it doesn't look likely to me

This is an interesting scenario.... I'll just add my 2 cents.

Lewis is a PF, who could play SF, but I don't see him playing SG. If Dallas were to get KG, then Lewis wouldn't be needed.

As for the KG deal, the first question I have to ask is would Minny want NVE after they didn't trade for him earlier before the deadline. The NVE to Minny rumor was one of the biggest out there. So why would they be interested now?

If for some reason they are, and want to get rid of KG, here is what I came up with.

Minnesota trades: SF Kevin Garnett (21.2 ppg, 12.1 rpg, 5.2 apg in 39.2 minutes)
Minnesota receives: PG Nick Van Exel (18.4 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 6.6 apg in 34.7 minutes)
SG Michael Finley (20.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 3.3 apg in 39.9 minutes)
2 Future 1st Round Picks
$3,000,000 Cash
Change in team outlook: +17.8 ppg, -3.4 rpg, and +4.7 apg.

Dallas trades: PG Nick Van Exel (18.4 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 6.6 apg in 34.7 minutes)
SG Michael Finley (20.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 3.3 apg in 39.9 minutes)
2 Future 1st Round Draft Picks
$3,000,000 Cash
Dallas receives: SF Kevin Garnett (21.2 ppg, 12.1 rpg, 5.2 apg in 81 games)
Change in team outlook: -17.8 ppg, +3.4 rpg, and -4.7 apg.

TRADE ACCEPTED

or... Since New York is into NVE as reported in the media...

Minnesota trades: SF Kevin Garnett (21.2 ppg, 12.1 rpg, 5.2 apg in 39.2 minutes)
Minnesota receives: SG Michael Finley (20.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 3.3 apg in 39.9 minutes)
SF Latrell Sprewell (19.4 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 3.9 apg in 41.1 minutes)
Future 1st round pick from Dallas
Future 2nd round pick from Dallas
Change in team outlook: +18.8 ppg, -3.2 rpg, and +2.0 apg.

Dallas trades: SG Michael Finley (20.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 3.3 apg in 39.9 minutes)
PG Nick Van Exel (18.4 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 6.6 apg in 34.7 minutes)
Dallas receives: SF Kevin Garnett (21.2 ppg, 12.1 rpg, 5.2 apg in 81 games)
Change in team outlook: -17.8 ppg, +3.4 rpg, and -4.7 apg.

New York trades: SF Latrell Sprewell (19.4 ppg, 3.7 rpg, 3.9 apg in 41.1 minutes)
New York receives: PG Nick Van Exel (18.4 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 6.6 apg in 72 games)
Future 1st round pick from Dallas
Future 2nd round pick from Minny
Change in team outlook: -1.0 ppg, -0.2 rpg, and +2.7 apg.

TRADE ACCEPTED

The reason why picks were added to the deals (they work without them) is because all of them will have thin rosters due to these contracts and could use more bodies.
