As Chris Farmer suggested in the 2003–2004 NBA thread, with the finals being over, it is time to move on. Therefore I’m starting a thread to discuss off-season moves, both players and coaches, as well as the upcoming draft. I’ll start by passing along the well-known (by now rumor) of O’Neal coming to Dallas. It is no particular secret that he has said publicly that he wants to be traded, and with his salary only a few teams will be able to put together a package that will both meet the terms of the collective bargaining agreement and be acceptable to the Lakers. The Mavs would no doubt have to trade Dirk, plus perhaps another star and an up-and-comer like Howard to put together an attractive package. Although Mark Cuban is definitely a deal maker who wants to make a move, I think that LA will trade Shaqto the East. Any opinions?
