This is unlikely to happen, but if you are the Dallas Mavericks, you have to at least give it a shot. Stranger things have happened, but to get the necessary cap room to fit both Dwight Howard and Chris Paul on their roster, they have to make some moves in advance.

Multiple sources have told ESPN.com’s Chad Ford the Mavs are likely to shop the pick in hopes of creating the cap space necessary to make a run at [Howard] in free agency. The 13th overall pick has a cap hold of $1,655,300. … The hope is to sell Howard or Chris Paul — who would each have to sacrifice a fifth year on the max contract that he could get from the Lakers and Clippers, respectively — on the possibility of building a championship contender. “We’d love to get one of the main guys,” Nowitzki said last week.

Dwight Howard Allegedly Torn Between Rockets and Lakers
