I knew Caron Butler was a key player for the Mavs. I also thought they could survive without him. At least well enough to beat the Pistons. The Mavericks look lost without Butler.
The Mavs may have to make a move. Some names out there I wouldn't mind seeing them trade for... Stephen Jackson, Andre Iguodala, Tayshawn Prince. One of those guys would be a nice addition. They have nothing at the three right now.
