Dallas Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Says This is His Pitch to Free Agents


Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has made no secret about his desire to bring some big name free agents to Dallas. And while he’s hoping to snag either Chris Paul or Dwight Howard, he may have to settle for a “lower” level name this offseason with hopes of bringing in a bigger name or two next year.

Whatever the case, Cuban says his pitch is pretty much this:

“In essence, you get to come in and, it’s you and we have room for two more max free agents (next year),” Mavs owner Mark Cuban said during a Monday appearance on KTCK-AM. “That’s why when I talked about a two-year plan, that’s the concept there.

“So part of our sales pitch is, look, we’re not going to try to fool you and say that you and Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion and Vince Carter and fill are basically a championship team. Maybe we get on a run, maybe we’re pretty good. But the reality is you’re going to work with us and Dirk to get out there and pick your team.”

Nowitzki, who will be a free agent at the end of the upcoming season has already stated his desire to return to Dallas and hopes to do so on a very reduced contract, giving the Mavericks plenty of cap space.
