I assume he'll start with Marion and Terry coming off the bench.

Kidd - Barea
Stevenson - Terry/Roddy Buckets
Peja - Marion/Pavlovic
Dirk - Marion/Cardinal
Chandler - Haywood/Mahinmi

Peja to the Mavs and Aijinca to the Raps in a separate deal.

I thought they cut Aijinca with the way TNT described the deal at hand with Peja.

Good pick-up. More bodies that can score never hurts...

I think he is saying that because there is already a Peja thread with the news of him agreeing to terms with Dallas in there.

I'm not sure if he starts or not, but he most likely should to play off Dirk and Kidd

The Raptors could pick up Ajinca.

Another big body couldn't hurt.

Just like I said earlier: Dallas is clearly the best fit for him.

I liked him on Chicago as well, but this is a good acquisition. He's not nearly as good as Butler, but he'll help.

i'm a Mavs fan and the answer is yes. Terry and Kidd are wildly inconcsistent in their shooting lol... Dirk is great rarely misses I agree, but Peja won't make an impact. He may be able to give us 3 3 pointers per game.....He's brings nothing else to the table

haha oh wow, ya im an eastern conference guy (knicks) and im watching them now, not the shooters i thought they were but kidd has been shooting great, then again when he was on the nets he had week long cold streaks, i think peja would def help in a game like this against the bulls but then again im not an intimate mavs fan like you.

Terry and Kidd are both boom or bust... Terry can give you 25 or 8... Kidd can give you 15 or 5... Peja will hit some shots I agree, but this isn't a big signing. He hardly puts us over the top. Hes never healthy... Hell I would rather cut bait and start playing the young guys (Roddy B and Dominique Jones)

this isnt a big signing but i like it hopefully they get melo then that would really put them over the top but its highly unlikely

Not a terrible pick up if Peja can pull it together.

He can still shoot the hell out of the ball, but he has to somehow stay healthy.

I think he does fit in well with Dallas though, if he can actually get healthy.

Not a bad fit to negate the loss of Caron Butler to some extent...but they need a creative scorer who can take it to the rim alot more...too many jump shooters on this team.

*Man not caring* :shrug:

What has Peja done this year beside keeping Toronto's Gatorade cold?

Hopefully the Mavs see him as a "Keith Van Horn, Austin Croshere" type of player off the bench like with the past teams, and not any sort of solution at SF. Still need to add a quality starting SF.

Oh, you didn't you know? You can only talk about the Lakers, Heat, Bulls, Celtics or Knicks on the main NBA forum. Threads concerning other teams belong on the team forums :shush:

Not to be an anti-Mav, but you are pretty spot on. I know they need to fill a hole since Caron went down, but Peja is an injured one trick pony. I think they should have taken a completely different approach to filling that spot. Peja will not come close to truly helping the Mavs get to where they want to be. I can't stand Cuban, but I hope the Mavs can pull it together a bit. I hate when Texas teams do poorly. I of course, will still wish twisted ankles against the Spurs though. :D

He didn't, nor was he capable of even that.

My point exactly. Why would anyone trade for this guy and *gasp* PAY HIM MONEY?!?!? :confused:

Loved Peja when he was tearing it up with C-Webb and Bibby in Sac-town, but he's now gone over the hill and is tumbling quickly.

Anything before the deadline and I expected a trade for Peja. Not an all out 'buyout then sign'. Ah well, still sheds a lot of cap space for a guy who isn't in our long term plans.

Good addition for the Mavs. They don't sacrifice anything significant. Could turn into a useless player, but don't mess with such a talented offensive guy. Look at T-Mac, starting for Detroit after being downplayed by everybody.
