He played the same role as J.R. Smith - didn't start games, but finished them and played a lot of minutes. The ultimate point was that the Mavs' supporting cast for Nowitzki was either inferior or about equal to what the Bulls would offer Rose this year and next.

I'm not sure why you make the distinction in height as if having (one of) the best big men and shooters in the league is somehow more advantageous than having the best point guard.
