Yep George I do.
Haywood is an underrated defender and can defend the rim a lot better than Dampier. Haywood and Butler are both good offensive rebounders which has been a huge weakness for the Mavs this season.
I have more faith of Haywood being able to bang with Bynum and Duncan than I do with Dampier. If you watch some Wiz games from before the trade, the Wiz were probably, outside of the Lakers, one of the few teams that wouldn't double team a dominate post player. Heywood is most definitely one of the better post defenders in the league.
If Rick Carlise can find an offense which has options of a mid range game for Butler, then he'll be the beast of old. Butler's game isn't catch and shoot, it's mid range, iso's and coming of curls. Playing on the weakside of Dirk could be very beneficial.
J-Ho has been on the outer in Dallas after his issues last season and the addition of Marion at the SF position. Butler also isn't an injury case like J-Ho is. Butler has always been better as a complementary scorer so he'll slot in nicely behind Dirk.
Butler's number of down due to the circus in Washington, plus Flip Saunders system didn't cater for Butler. Saunders system caters for the 1,2 and 4.
The Mavs have to roll the dice now, Dirk, Kidd, Marion and Jet are all aging. I think they now have a 2 season window. Personally, I think this moves put them back into the picture of the Western Conference finals.
The Mavs still have the Dampier chip left to play.
