Trade for Whiteside…yea or nay?

Rumor has it the Mavs might be interested in Whiteside if Miami “sweetens the pot.” We’d be taking on a lot of salary long term with similar character risks/Carlisle expectation fit questions to Noel, albeit more talent in both ends. What sort of sweetener would it take, if anything to

Jordan Barnett was a marksman from NBA 3-point range last season
