  1. Report: Mavericks re-sign Bernard James

    Aug 22, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Berard James

    James, on one-year minimum-salary contract, will have right to veto trades

  2. The Knicks can still trade Carmelo Anthony – if he lets them. Maybe he should.

    Jun 20, 2014, 2:48 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, D.J. Augustin

    Could Carmelo Anthony command a max contract in 2015? That question is at the heart of how he should proceed.

  3. Brandan Wright’s block helps Mavericks seal win over Suns (VIDEO)

    Apr 13, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Dallas Mavericks

    Mavs’ big man gets there in time to deny Bledsoe and help Dallas hang on.

  4. Big second half from Nowitzki, Ellis puts Mavs in playoffs; could put Suns out of them

    Apr 13, 2014, 1:25 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis combined for 44 in the second half.

  5. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

  6. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  7. Samuel Dalembert is fading from Mavericks’ rotation

    Dec 16, 2013, 11:10 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    Saturday night against the Milwaukee Bucks, Samuel Dalembert picked up a DNP-Coaches Decision. The guy the Mavericks signed this off-season to be a rim protecting big man has already been bumped from the starting lineup back on Dec. 4 (after starting the team’s first 17 games) but now he is fading out of the rotation…

  8. Mavericks’ Brandan Wright fractures shoulder, out indefinitely

    Oct 11, 2013, 12:38 PM EDT

    Brandan Wright

    Ouch. Brandan Wright was going to get some minutes in Dallas — Samuel Dalembert is penciled in as the starting center but he is out of shape and not a guy you give 30 minutes a night to anyway. After that you have Bernard James or you go small (DeJuan Blair). But Wright is out…

  9. Lakers’ Chris Kaman wasn’t a fit with Mavs, according to Mark Cuban

    Aug 11, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman

    The Los Angeles Lakers looked like they made a pretty good deal when they were able to add Chris Kaman for the taxpayer’s mid-level exception of just $3.1 million for the upcoming season. The Lakers needed a big that could come in, know his role and complement Pau Gasol in the frontcourt — but that’s…

  10. DeJuan Blair reaches deal to join Dallas Mavericks

    Jul 30, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

    Johan Petro, DeJuan Blair

    UPDATE 12:40 pm: DeJuan Blair himself has made it official. Dallas!!!!! Now lets have some fun!!!! — DeJuan Blair (@DeJuan45) July 30, 2013 This is a good pickup by Dallas. They got him at the NBA veteran’s minimum (that’s all they could really offer) and at that price Blair is a value. He can rebuound,…

  11. Report: Brandan Wright agrees to two-year deal with Dallas

    Jul 23, 2013, 5:57 PM EDT

    Bradnon Wright

    Brandan Wright has spent the past couple seasons in Dallas, and apparently he liked it because he is staying put. The best unrestricted free agent scoring big man left on the market has agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal his agent Jim Tanner told David Aldridge of NBA.com and TNT. This is a nice…

  12. Brandan Wright poised to get substantially bigger contract

    Jul 1, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

    Bradnon Wright

    Just 14 players have ranked in the top 25 for PER in each of the last two seasons: LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Al Jefferson, LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Kobe Bryant, Brandan Wright, Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry. The 13 highest-paid members of that group, even…

  13. Dirk Nowitzki hits game-winning three-pointer to bury the Bulls (VIDEO)

    Mar 30, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    We talked about the race for the eighth and final playoff spot in the West between the Jazz and the Lakers earlier today, but the Mavericks are likely to be in the conversation through the end of the regular season, as well. Dallas has finally gotten Dirk Nowitzki back healthy, and has now won 11…

  14. Report: Celtics were closer than you think to trading Paul Pierce

    Mar 8, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The idea of Paul Pierce in an Dallas Mavericks uniform just seems… wrong. Yet apparently it was closer to happening than we knew. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was listening to offers and talking about maybe blowing up Boston and restarting, but the conventional wisdom was he wouldn’t go through with it. But he almost did,…

  15. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: James Harden reminds Thunder he’s good

    Feb 21, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while you were calling 9-1-1 then asking police to bring you some cigarettes…. Lakers 113, Celtics 99: Dwight Howard played maybe his best game as a Laker and was a force on defense, Steve Nash was carving up the defense and making passes…

  16. Trade Rumor Roundup: As deadline nears, lots of questions remain

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:16 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    It is now just a little less than 13 hours until the NBA trade deadline and we have had all of one whopping trade. Which means it’s going to be a very busy Thursday… probably. There are going to be deals, guys we expect to get dealt will get dealt, but there may be fewer…

  17. Report: Mavericks interested in Brandon Jennings. If Bucks move him.

    Feb 13, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    The Milwaukee Bucks have tested the trade waters for Brandon Jennings — he’s a restricted free agent this summer they think is going to potentially get offers larger than they want to match. So do you trade him now and get something for him? The Bucks will listen. The Mavericks are interested if Milwaukee is…

  18. Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle fined for criticizing officials

    Feb 2, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Rick Carlisle

    We knew this was coming. After the Mavericks lost to the Warriors on Thursday, in a game where a critical call (or in this case, a non-call) didn’t go the team’s way for a second straight game, Rick Carlisle was critical of the officials afterward. “The game came down to the call that wasn’t made,”…

  19. Mavs’ Carlisle, Cuban frustrated with officials (and likely will get fined)

    Feb 1, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    Rick Carlisle

    Tuesday night the Mavericks lost a close game in Portland and the next day the NBA league office admitted that the officials blew a charge/block call that went against Dallas and O.J. Mayo at the end of a tight game. Portland got the win, but Dallas got the apology from the league. That should make…

  20. Warriors hang on to beat Mavericks in battle of shorthanded teams

    Feb 1, 2013, 2:07 AM EDT

    David Lee, Andrew Bogut

    The second half of the TNT doubleheader on Thursday lost some of its luster before the game even started, with both Stephen Curry of the Warriors and Dirk Nowitzki of the Mavericks being ruled out due to injury. But the game turned out to be exciting nonetheless, as others stepped up on both sides to…

  21. Heat bring the defending champs to Dallas, have no trouble dismantling the Mavericks

    Dec 21, 2012, 12:49 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward James shoots on Dallas Mavericks Mayo during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    The Miami Heat are the defending champions for a reason. The overall talent on the roster, which includes the league’s best player in LeBron James, is enough to beat most teams in the league with ease, but only when everyone is engaged, and interested in defending to the level that they have proven to be…

  22. O.J. Mayo out-duels James Harden as Mavs beat Rockets

    Dec 8, 2012, 11:56 PM EDT

    O.J. Mayo

    This was one of the more fun contests from a 10-game Saturday night slate. We had a superstar from each team putting in a dominant performance, and we had wild swings in the control of the game, with each team gaining a double-digit advantage at various points throughout. Ultimately, the Mavericks found a way to…

  23. Dirk Nowitzki has knee surgery Friday, out six weeks

    Oct 19, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    BKB-GER-US-ALBA-MAVERICKS

    Rather than wait and hope it heals like it did last season, Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks are being proactive. Nowitzki underwent arthroscopic surgery to his right knee Friday morning and will be out for about six weeks, the team announced Friday. That timeframe has him returning around the start of December. That would…
