In a move that happened last evening, Mark Cuban and Donnie Nelson made a trade that heavily favors the Mavericks. They sent Ian [...]

Chris Kaman tweets image of 'big news'

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...

Mavs using amnesty clause on Haywood

Brendan Haywood has been waived by the Dallas Mavericks, who designated the 7-foot center as their amnesty player.

Haywood is set to make $8.3 million next season and is due ...

After early offseason whiffs, Mavs acquire Collison, Kaman

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.

Mavericks land Chris Kaman and Darren Collison, not bad recovery

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. First...

Chris Kaman Confirms Dallas Signing On Twitter

  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).   Something...

NBA owners must protect their assets

When Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin went down with a torn meniscus in his left knee at Olympic training camp in Las Vegas this week, somewhere in Dallas, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban probably couldn't help but mutter a quiet "I told you so" -- even if only to himself. Cuban's presumed rancor, of course, wouldn't be intended for Griffin, who, through...
