He can go to Dallas with Deron Williams if they take less than the max.
Dallas, in order to clear anywhere near enough cap room to go after both Williams and Howard, would have to renounce Kidd and Terry, and find a trading partner for Odom, Marion, and Haywood in which they wouldn't take on any salary. In other words almost impossible. I mean Dirk alone makes almost 21 million next year (add in Beaubois, Jones, and just minimum contract cap holds and you are at close to 30 million).
Dallas is in the market for one of the two, but not both unless they take MLE type contracts.
But even assuming Dallas could get close to max, why would they go there when they can both play in Brooklyn without taking less money. And frankly, Brooklyn might very well be better positioned to win a title going forward than Dallas would be. Sure there is no Dirk in Brooklyn, but Dirk is old, and the Nets would still have Brook Lopez, Marshon Brooks, Kris Humphries, and two picks in the up coming draft (currently #4 and #19 - which according to nbadraft.net would be Thomas Robinson and Fab Melo).
