Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
With the NBA trade deadline about six weeks away, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has announced that team is ready to make a deal.
“We’re letting everybody know that the ‘Bank of Cuban’ is open. If it’s the right deal, we don’t mind taking back money. But we’re not going to do a trade just to do a trade. It’s got to be worthwhile.”
The Mavericks are having a pretty subpar season despite the play of OJ Mayo and Vince Carter. The Mavs currently have 4 expiring contracts in Chris Kaman, Dahntay Jones, Elton Brand, Dominique Jones. They’re also holding the option on restricted free agents Darren Collison and Roddy Beaubois and OJ Mayo has a player option. The Mavs are currently $10 million under the luxury tax limit. Cuban is known for his savvy business acumen and passion for his Mavs, we know from his past track record he’s not afraid to spend to make things happen. Who do you think would be a good team for the Mavs to make a trade with?

AROUND THE WEB
After their win over the Minnesota Timberwolves in Dallas on Monday night, Dallas is looking more like the team of old, not in age, but in working together and putting something nice on the court for the fans to see.
It felt good, it looked good and you could tell that the players were in agreement with it because they looked relaxed and even smiling, yes I said smiling during the...
According to the boss, Dirk isn't going anywhere
Even though it hasn't been discussed widely thus far this season, Dallas Mavericks' owner Mark Cuban has dismissed the notion that his struggling team--sitting at 10 games under .500 in recent days--will trade superstar and long-time franchise player Dirk Nowitzki to clear cap and accelerate the inevitable...
Mark Cuban has been active with Donnie Nelson searching for ways to improve the Mavericks ahead of the Feb. 21 deadline.
Dirk Nowitzki wants to be a Dallas Maverick forever, but also doesn’t want to be chasing a low playoff seed every year either.
The figurative (possibly literal) Bank of Mark Cuban is open, but he doesn’t want to take on bad salary or deviate too far from the flexibility Dallas has built either.
The Mavs have won [...]
DALLAS (AP) -- Dirk Nowitzki scored 19 points, O.J. Mayo hit two tiebreaking free throws and the Dallas Mavericks held off a Jeremy Lin-led surge to beat the Houston Rockets 105-100 on Wednesday night.
Lin and James Harden combined to score the last 18 points for the Rockets, who erased an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit and got even at 97. After Elton Brand blocked a layup attempt...
(Photo Credit: The Associated Press) With Dirk fully back from his knee injury, and Elton Brand looking rejuvenated, we’ve been graced with some Mavericks basketball of old over the past three games. Not to mention, Darren Collison and O.J. Mayo, two of the streakiest players in the NBA, have been tearing it up. My only question, [...]
Mavs Add Elton Brand
Over the weekend, Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki was doing his best to check out a review near the end of the Mavericks/Kings game at Sleep Train Arena.As Dirk attempted to get a better look at the review, a Kings security guard did his best to block of the path of Dirk from getting a closer look:
Dirk Nowitzki has been the Dallas Mavericks' preeminent scorer through nearly all of his 15 seasons, but he hasn't had to carry the load during one of the team's longest win streaks of 2012-13.
Looking for another balanced effort, Dallas will seek a season-high fourth consecutive victory Wednesday night while trying to add to its recent dominance over the struggling...
Dirk Nowitzki will likely not be a factor in Dwight Howard's decision beyond the consideration of on-floor fit.
DALLAS -- On the eve of the All-Star starters for each conference being announced, the Houston Rockets’ backcourt hardly looked All-Star worthy in a 105-100 loss to the Dallas Mavericks Wednesday night at the American Airlines Center. Jeremy Lin missed 1 of 2 free throws in two critical trips to the free-throw line late in the game and then committed a turnover with 15 seconds...
