Wonder if Mavs can get CP3 or Dwight
The Mavericks will have to overcome a money mountain to convince Chris Paul or Dwight Howard to come to Dallas.

The collective bargaining agreement gives their current teams a tremendous financial edge this summer, allowing them to offer five-year deals with annual raises that are 7.5 percent of the first yearís salary, as opposed to the four-year deals with 4.5 percent raises the Mavs and others can offer.

In Howardís case, itís a difference of $30.4 million. In Paulís case, the difference is $28.2 million.

Dig a little deeper in the numbers, however, and the Mavs (and Houston Rockets, for that matter) can make a case that the offers would be a lot closer than they appear.

California millionaires pay a 10.3 percent state income tax. The great state of Texas doesnít levy a state income tax on its citizens.
