Dallas Mavericks

  1. Phoenix, Chicago this week's frontrunners for Erick Dampier

    Oct 6, 2010, 6:55 PM EDT

    Let’s be honest, we got annoyed with the LeBron James decision process that seemed to drag on and on, but at least there was a franchise-shaping decision coming at the end of it. The Erick Dampier decision-making process? It just drags on and on. Dampier will meet this week with Chicago and Phoenix, according to…

  2. Mark Cuban has to pay Don Johnson $51 million for Nash Bridges

    Oct 4, 2010, 7:50 PM EDT

    Some shows have nice long runs on television without me catching an episode or noticing they exist. Numb3ers was one of those. Virtually every sitcom of the last five years. There are others. Nash Bridges was in that club. You know, the show Don Johnson did after Miami Vice (Johnson helped produce as well). With…

  3. Good news for the Mavs: Rodrigue Beaubois' broken foot is getting better all the time

    Sep 30, 2010, 8:01 PM EDT

    Over the summer, the Dallas Mavericks shot for LeBron James, but fell short. They tried for Dwyane Wade, but no dice. Then came Joe Johnson, but he wasn’t interested. They altered their plan of attack and were linked to Andre Iguodala and Al Jefferson in trade discussions, but the Mavs couldn’t get a deal done.…

  4. Tim Thomas plans on playing in the NBA again… next year

    Sep 30, 2010, 10:08 AM EDT

    The Dallas Mavericks have waived Tim Thomas. He played just 18 games for the team last year and will not be with the team this season as he attends to a family situation that takes priority. But he wants to be back next season, he told Zagsblog.com. “I’m definitely planning on being back next year,”…

  5. Jason Kidd calls "B.S." on report he tried to talk 'Melo out of New Jersey

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:58 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony clearly is having second thoughts about taking his talents to New Jersey. Can’t imagine why. We just listened to Springsteen’s “Born To Run” and he made it sound like such a wonderful place. Then there was the report from Sam Amick of FanHouse that Jason Kidd warned Melo about the perils of New…

  6. Mark Cuban not done banging on the Heat, says they're a team "only locals can love"

    Sep 24, 2010, 11:24 AM EDT

    Okay Mark, we get it. Mark Cuban thinks people will hate the new Miami Heat, then will tune in to watch and root against them. And that at the end of the day that is good for the league because people are watching and involved. Cuban did a chat with the Fort Worth Star Telegram…

  7. Camp invites rolling in: Jarron Collins to Clippers, Steve Novak to Mavericks

    Sep 22, 2010, 4:49 PM EDT

    Teams are busy rounding out their rosters for training camps and a couple familiar names are popping up. Jarron Collins, half of the offensively challenged Collins twins, will be headed to Clippers, his agent told Hoopshype. Not sure there is much to this, they have Chris Kaman and DeAndre Jordan at the five already, not…

  8. Dirk Nowitzki is going to get some help this season. No, really. They mean it this time.

    Sep 22, 2010, 10:01 AM EDT

    Last season Dirk Nowitzki played 2,011 minutes, 37.5 minutes per game. Almost identical to the season before that. Both of those increases from the season before that. Every year training camp rolls around and the Dallas Mavericks talk about not pushing Dirk Nowitzki so hard during the regular season, saving him for the playoffs a…

  9. Court revives insider trading case against Mark Cuban

    Sep 21, 2010, 2:59 PM EDT

    Back in 2009, the insider trading case against Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was thrown out of court. Now it is back. A federal appeals court revived the case today, sending it back to a lower court for further discovery and then to proceed from there. That could include a trial. Here is the AP’s breakdown…

  10. More Mark Cuban coming to your television

    Sep 20, 2010, 4:18 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban is coming back to television, not just on the sidelines at Mavs games but in a role on a reality show. Fortunately this time we will not need some kind of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind memory erasers to get images of him in dancing in a sleeveless shirt out of our…

  11. Dallas Mavericks Transformers

    Sep 17, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    The Dallas Mavericks promo videos are just the best.

  12. Why Dirk stayed in Dallas: The owner gets it

    Sep 17, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    LeBron James had questions about Cleveland, its ownership and the grand plan. He didn’t have those questions (or far fewer ones) about Miami. Dirk Nowitzki was a free agent this summer too, although nobody expected him to move. He told Mavs Moneyball it was owner Mark Cuban’s commitment to winning that made sure he did…

  13. Cuban says "hell yes" his Mavericks can beat the Lakers

    Sep 16, 2010, 2:15 PM EDT

    Things are going to be different this year for the Mavericks. No more of that “good but not quite good enough” stuff. Time to own the West, the NBA. This is the year the Mavericks beat the Lakers. That’s not me saying that, I still have a shred of sanity left. It’s Mark Cuban, owner…

  14. Mavs looking at Brian Cardinal to be new guy sitting on bench

    Sep 16, 2010, 10:02 AM EDT

    Brian Cardinal — the 10-year NBA veteran who played in just 29 games for the Minnesota Timberwolves last season — is being eyed by the Dallas Mavericks to fill the Tim Thomas slot. Bobby Simmons and Steve Novak are in the running, but Cardinal is the front runner, according to Art Garcia at NBA.com. Dallas…

  15. Tim Thomas to stay with ailing wife, will not report to Mavericks

    Sep 14, 2010, 9:23 PM EDT

    Just a week ago, Tim Thomas was talking about how he wanted to be back with Dallas, to help them win a title and to show his loyalty to them for the Mavs’ support of Thomas while he was away helping his sick wife. But the reality of those family issues continue to take priority…

  16. Rodrigue Beaubois is off crutches, hopes to be ready for the Mavs' season opener

    Sep 10, 2010, 4:35 PM EDT

    Rodrigue Beaubois’ broken foot put a huge damper on the French national team’s chances at the FIBA World Championships, but with an already limited team (Tony Parker, Mickael Pietrus, Ronny Turiaf, and Joakim Noah were all notable NBA no-gos), France would have faced a long and trying road with or without Beaubois. Now, with France…

  17. Dee Brown coming to Dallas Mavericks camp

    Sep 3, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    Dee Brown has flitted around the edges of the NBA —  just in or just out –since he left Illinois four years ago (he was the other guy in the backcourt with Deron Williams). This year he wants back in and tweeted that he will be headed to the Dallas Mavericks training camp this fall.…

  18. Caron Butler is tired of being on entertaining teams, he'll take dull and a ring

    Aug 17, 2010, 12:56 PM EDT

    Variations of this theme seem to play out wherever Caron Butler goes. Last season heading into the playoffs, the Dallas Mavericks looked like the team ready to test the Lakers. Dallas was the two seed, they had won 7 of 10 including five in a row. There was a quiet, veteran confidence around the team.…

  19. Caron Butler's summer vacation: A little Lance Armstrong imitation, a little Tim Grover

    Aug 16, 2010, 1:31 PM EDT

    It’s a little hard to picture Caron Butler — all 6’7″, 215 pounds of him — in Lycra shorts and a tight-fitting yellow cycling shirt with about 1,000 sponsors plastered all over it. You know, decked out like the weekend warrior cyclist. But if you’ve been in Washington DC this summer, you may well have…

  20. Roddy Beaubois needs foot surgery, will be out two to three months

    Aug 9, 2010, 11:02 PM EDT

    Surgery to put a pin in the foot of your speedy young guard does not sound good. That’s what lies ahead for Roddy Beaubois, but Dallas Mavericks General Manager Donnie Nelson told ESPNDallas.com things were not that bad. “His prognosis is really good,” Nelson said. “He’ll miss some time, but he’ll be back healthy as…

  21. Tiago Splitter injured playing for Brazil, but won't miss the FIBA World Championships

    Aug 9, 2010, 12:04 PM EDT

    The San Antonio Spurs (and the Brazilian national team) dodged a bullet. Tiago Splitter dodged some long-term, season-altering damage to his muscle tissue. Splitter was injured while playing against Venezuela in a pre-Championship tournament game, but according to Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News, it’s been diagnosed as a minor thigh contusion. Splitter has…

  22. Pops Mensah-Bonsu still can't find a way to hang around, heads to Spain

    Aug 9, 2010, 10:51 AM EDT

    Pops Mensah-Bonsu has the physical gifts, work ethic, and focus to be an effective NBA role player, but for some reason he’s never been able to find a place to hang his hat in the States. After the Mavericks unveiled Mensah-Bonsu in 2006, they had to cut him in the following season due to a…

  23. Mark Cuban would have been good for baseball

    Aug 5, 2010, 2:12 AM EDT

    UPDATE 2:12 am: Mark Cuban was outbid by the Ryan/Greenberg team, they came up with a huge cash bid of $385 million (plus they are taking on additional considerable debt). Cuban is out. Good for them. Bad for us. Baseball needs some owners who are not willing to just sit back and watch the Yankees…

  24. Mark Cuban submits the highest bid to own baseball's Rangers. But this story isn't over.

    Aug 4, 2010, 7:09 PM EDT

    Can you picture Bud Selig calling David Stern for advice in dealing with an owner rocking the boat? Mark Cuban — the owner of the Dallas Mavericks — may soon be the proud owner of the Texas Rangers as well. Maybe. A lot of lawyers have to have their say first. In an open bidding…

  25. Tim Thomas expects to sign deal with Dallas

    Jul 30, 2010, 11:03 AM EDT

    Tim Thomas played just 18 games for Dallas last year – there was knee surgery at the start of the season and having to leave the team to tend to his ailing wife for the second half of the season. Thomas wants to return to Dallas this season and expects to get an offer, he…
