i'm not sure this is the right article but here's some that pertains to the Mavs.

"There remains a chance Kidd and Zo hook up in Dallas, though the sign-and-trade deal to give Jason the max and satisfy salary-cap stipulations -- I won't bore you with the details -- would require around $27 million worth of contracts to change hands. That means, for example, Kidd and Dikembe Mutombo head to Dallas and the Mavs have to send Steve Nash, Raef LaFrentz, Tariq Abdul-Wahad and two other players of the Eduardo Najera or Avery Johnson pay-level to New Jersey. But let's say the Nets are willing to swallow all those poison-pill contracts -- LaFrentz making $9 million or more through the 2007-08 season and Tariq owed more than $6 million for the next three seasons -- rather than come up empty. Unless you're Mark Cuban or one of his disciples, Dirk, Kidd, Fin and Zo still can't goose you quite the way Duncan, Kidd, Zo and Ginobili (or Parker) does."

I like that lineup. If you could squeeze Jefferson out of the nets hands then I am definitely on board. Insert Pippen
