So for the first time in his career, Dirk has recently openly discussed the possibility of being traded (he has a no trade clause). Regardless of what you believe has happened I think it's safe to say Kobe and Dwight aren't exactly getting along 100% and to me, Dwight has been a disappointment (i don't buy any lingering injury talk). At this rate, there's no guarantee Dwight is going to re-sign here and honestly, there's no guarantee the Lakers want to re-sign him after what they've seen this season.

What if the Mavs were to call up and offer Dirk for Dwight? I think I'd take that deal.

Of course. You'd rather have Channing Frye, also.

Nash led a team of Marcin Gortat, Channing Frye, Shannon Brown, and Jared Dudley to a better record than what the current lineup has.

This Lakers team has a WHOLE lot more talent than that team did.

The idea is pretty lame, but the OP does bring up an interesting point. I was never sold on the idea of building around Bynum long term. Not sure I am any more sold on the idea of building around Howard long term. Need to see some Orlando style production + some maturity and leadership from him first.
