Mavs fail chemistry 101
The Dallas Mavericks have acquired Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson from the Wizards.
They didn't give up very much. Just a curiously ineffective Josh Howard, Drew Gooden, James Singleton, and Quinton Ross.
On paper, it seems like a good deal, except for the fact that Haywood and Stevenson are total knuckleheads.
Plus, I am not a rider on the Caron Butler bandwagon. He gets a lot of good press around the league, but to me he's borderline knucklehead too.
Bottom line is that I don't think this trade puts the Mavericks any deeper into the playoffs than they were already going before it happened.
