Even though owner Mark Cuban said he wouldn't trade Howard, that may have been his way of getting GMs around the league to start getting serious about their offers for Howard, which they haven't been so far.
The Mavericks are perfectly happy to keep Howard. When he's good, they're usually good. If he gets completely healthy, he could be set up for a good second half.
Deals that might fit: To Charlotte with J.J. Barea for Raja Bell and Raymond Felton; to Memphis with Bass for Mike Conley and Darko Milicic."
