France has produced some solid NBA players. Tony Parker, Nicolas Batum, Rony Turiaf and Ian Mahinmi are perhaps more of the notable French-born players and one of them who gets lost in the shuffle is Dallas Mavericks' Rodrigue Beaubois.
There is no doubt he can fill the basket (he's nicknamed "Roddy Buckets" for a reason). The lightning quick guard for Dallas has a career-high scoring outburst of 40 points in 2010 and season-high of 22 but it would seem this isn't enough for the Mavs.
According to ESPN, Beaubois may be on his way out of Dallas sooner or later.
Sources say Dallas is about ready to move on from the Roddy Beaubois experiment. The Mavericks have thought for years that the talented young Frenchman could be another Tony Parker, but he has not been able to master the move from shooting guard to point guard. Nor has he been able to fill the void left by J.J. Barea. If they don't move him before this year's deadline, he could be gone ove...

The Dallas Mavericks have been quite defensive while defending their first NBA title. There was a big hole in the middle and plenty of questions about how drastically it would affect the Mavericks when they let stalwart defender Tyson Chandler go after last season. But Dallas (21-13), which also didn't re-sign gritty defender DeShawn Stevenson, goes into the All-Star break as one of the...
Rick Carlisle is pleased with Lamar Odom's play over the last 15 games.
After a title run with the Dallas Mavericks, the Wolves guard likes what he sees in his new team.
March 8, 2011 was the last time the Lakers (19-13) were in Dallas, but they hardly need a reminder what happened that day. However, forgetting what transpired on the floor of the American Airlines Center last year will not serve this team in what they'll try to accomplish tonight as they take on the defending champs Dallas Mavericks (21-12).The Lakers are a ridiculous 5-11 on...
