Brandon Jennings wants a max deal, and it seems as if the Milwaukee Bucks are not interested in paying him as such.  ESPN Dallas is reporting that the Mavericks just might be interesting in paying Jennings top dollar. Sources tell ESPN.com’s Marc Stein that the Mavs have a “level of interest” in Jennings if the Milwaukee Bucks make the restricted free agent-to-be point guard available before the Feb. 21 trade deadline. Jennings, 23, is averaging 18.5 points and 6.1 assists in his fourth NBA season. He arguably fits Mark Cuban’s description given for potential trade targets: a young talent who would immediately be a top-three player on the Mavs’ roster with the potential to develop into an All-Star. Cuban spoke Monday and would like a player comparable to Steve Nash in his prime. “I’ll analogize it to Steve Nash,” Cuban said Monday, speaking in generalities about the type of player the Mavs would target. “Whatever we saw in Nash and (Michael) Finleywith Donnie (Nelson]) back then, same type of thing. There’s been lots of players we picked up over time that weren’t All-Stars that turned into cornerstones. We’d take those. “They don’t have to be proven. They’d have to be someone we think it’s just a question of time or system or coaching or whatever.” The Mavericks are not comfortable with tabbing Darren Collison as their point guard of the future.  I believe Dallas sees Collison as more of sixth man or complimentary part at point guard.
