We brought you the news earlier this week that the Dallas Mavericks were reportedly attempting to shop their lottery pick in the hopes to create enough cap space to sign both Dwight Howard and Chris Paul this off-season. It appears that reportedly, the plans have changed in Dallas.
Per Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Mavericks have given up on the chances of acquiring Chris Paul to focus solely on bringing Dwight into town.
I think Chris Paul, depending on who [the Clippers] hire, is going to stay with the Clippers. The Mavericks are really interested in Chris Paul, but I think they want Dwight more. They think they can make them a point guard.
According to the report the Mavericks have decided to look elsewhere to remedy their point guard needs. Particularly setting their sights on Golden State Warriors guard Jarret Jack, who will also be a free agent this off-season.
Patience with these situations is key because we won’t know what to believe until free agency actually opens up on July 1st. We’ll keep you updated throughout the saga of Dwightmare 2.

We haven't even reached the NBA Finals and a majority of the talk around the league is focused on a player whose team has been ousted from the postseason. It's evident that there will be another Dwight Howard circus this summer, and two more teams have been added to his list of potential suitors -- according to Mark Medina of The Press-Telegram -- the Atlanta Hawks and Golden...
The long, melodramatic soap opera that is Dwight Howard’s career these last few seasons begins its next chapter this summer when the Lakers center becomes an unrestricted free agent.
Howard is expected to be interested in the usual suspects: the Lakers, Rockets, Mavericks and his hometown Hawks. And now, according to the LA Daily News, another team is now interestingly in the mix...
I’ve always thought Chris Paul is the ultimate package at the point guard position. He’s a competitor, has great basketball IQ, he gets his teammates involved, he can shoot, he’s crafty, he’s a terrific passer and a great leader. I never really had a problem with Paul being tabbed as the “best point guard in the NBA.” But if we are going to be consistent with how we judge...
