Or the trade that actually happened, to Dallas...

Toronto we'd have a starting PG at least!
And we'd have lost one of best trade chips as essentially a throw-in. There's still a chance the Calderon deal could get done, just without Chandler included. Chandler was orignially included so we could get some of the trade exception, and Toronto has way too many guards on their payroll. It wouldn't surprise me if this trade was revisted, and Diaw and Mohammad get sent to Toronto for Calderon.
I don't think we can look at the Dallas deal as a singularity. When you move Tyson Chandler for Eric Dampier, you're getting a better trade chip to work with. Jordan has something up his sleeve that's going to require Dampier getting traded, I fully believe that. There's nothing about the Dallas trade that says "ok, we're done!" and considering that our FO has been pretty solid when it comes to trades, I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt that they've got something else coming.
But if they don't, they can go fug themselves.
