DALLAS The Dallas Mavericks, establishing that 'Plan Keep Your Powder Dry' needn't be synonymous with 'inactivity,' followed up Wednesday's acquisition of Hornets center Chris Kaman with a trade with Indiana that brings to Dallas a starting point guard in Darren Collison and a rotation piece in Dahntay Jones.
Following closely in the wake of the announcement that Kaman is set to sign a 1-year 8 million contract comes yet another deal for a Mavs franchise disappointed in its failed pursuit of Deron Williams. Instead, Dallas accumulates more talent on one-year deals, allowing the Mavs to be superstar suitors in the summer of 2013.
In the terms of the deal, Dallas acquires Darren Collison and Dahntay Jones from Indiana and sends away sign-and-traded Ian Mahinmi, who is reported to have inked a new four-year 16-million deal. Both Collison and Jones are in the final year of their contracts, at 2.3 and 2.9 million respectively.
While this may not amount to the ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Chris Kaman may need a primer on what constitutes "big news." Moments before announcing that he had signed a one-year deal with the Mavericks, the 7-footer out of Central Michigan tweeted a photo of a dead rodent he found in his gym Wednesday morning as "part of the big news." "I think it's a muskrat?!" Kaman wrote. We'll take your word for it...
While some have expressed their doubts about the Indiana Pacers selecting Miles Plumlee with the 26th pick in the NBA draft, the only returns that matter are what the eldest son of Perky and Lisa Plumlee produce on the basketball court. So far, he has proved those doubters wrong. Miles put up 18 points and 8 rebounds for the Indiana Pacers yesterday and served up two facial dunks...
The Dallas Mavericks were once seen as one of the more aggressive franchises in the NBA when it came to free agent signings. Almost every summer they would be busy landing players in an attempt to bolster their lineup. But curiously, this offseason hasn’t gone quite that way.
They missed out on signing Deron Willams and Jason Kidd decided to spurn them to head to the Knicks, mainly...
Free agency wasn't going initially well for Dallas. Deron Williams didn't work out, nor did Jeremy Lin, Steve Nash, or any other Point Guard they tried to acquire. They didn't appear to have enough ammo for a real shot at Dwight Howard, and then Jason Kidd left along with Jason Terry. But I do have to say the Mavs recovered nicely yesterday. Vey nicely I think.

Most of the 1st round had no shocking picks until the Pacers took Plumlee with the 26th pick in the 1st round. Plumlee is a beast in workouts because his strength and athletic ability really shows but when it’s game time you don’t see any of that. Last year at Duke he only averaged 6.6 points per game. Plumlee...
The Pacers have acquired Ian Mahinmi in a sign-and-trade agreement from Dallas in exchange for Darren Collison and Dahntay Jones.
The Dallas Mavericks struck out on free agent priority Deron Williams, a loss that set back the franchise's hopes of contending for another title in the twilight years of Dirk Nowitzki's career. Then Dallas opted not to match a contract offer the Boston Celtics made to Jason Terry, and days later, Jason Kidd stunned the franchise by passing on the Mavericks' offer to...
The Dallas Mavericks are set to sign free agent center Chris Kaman, reports The Dallas Morning News.
The deal is expected to be for one season.
Kaman confirmed the news himself via Twitter.
"Partnering up with @swish41 (Dirk Nowitzki) and heading to the Mavs..." Kaman posted on @ChrisKaman.
Kaman spent last season in New Orleans, playing in 47 games and averaging 13...
Scoring 16 and ripping 8 boards, Sully has been the main option for the Summer League C's and its working! Jared did have 5 turnovers though, but had 2 blocks. Dionte Christmas has been consistent as well scoring another 10 points with 5 assists 3 steals and 4 rebounds. E'Twaun Moore has been impressive as well as he continues to show he can do a lot, but will need to do...
Brendan Haywood was re-signed by Dallas during the 2010 offseason.
The Indiana Pacers have agreed to a sign point guard DJ Augustin to a one year, $3.5 million contract according to a report from Mike Wells of the Indiana Star. Augustin was a restricted free agent this summer after playing for the Charlotte Bobcats for his entire career. Augustin averaged 11.1 ppg and 6.1 apg [...]
The Dallas Mavericks finally delivered something to their fans this offseason. And while rifle-wielding, deer-hunting Chris Kaman clearly isn’t Deron Williams, Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, or even Jason Kidd, he still is a decent consolation prize.
Kaman confirmed the signing on Twitter, then expressed his excitement for Texas’ gun laws (or lack there of).
