|Mavs moving in on Butler||02.13.10 at 11:19 am ET|
Reports out of Dallas and Washington indicate that the Mavericks are closing in on a deal that would get them Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson in exchange for Josh Howard, Drew Gooden, James Singleton and Quinton Ross. (The Washington Post had a could of different names at the end of the deal, but the principles, Butler and Howard, are the same).
The hot rumor Friday morning involved the Celtics trading Ray Allen to the Wizards for Butler and Antawn Jamison.
Jamison is still very available and has been linked to the Cavaliers among other teams.
