Once thought to be a favorite, the Dallas Mavericks have been officially deemed out out of the Dwight Howard sweepstakes, this according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.
Dallas Mavericks have been officially notified they are out of Dwight Howard Sweepstakes, sources tell ESPN
In the past day or so it’s become increasingly obvious that the Mavericks were lacking behind both the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors, even the Los Angeles Lakers who reportedly have fallen on Dwight’s wish list. Still, it’s a tough blow to Mavericks owner Mark Cuban who had grand dreams of signing at least one of the Chris Paul/Dwight Howard combo this offseason.
The Mavericks will continue their “two year plan” though it becomes more of a “one year plan” now.
What’s to come next for the Mavericks is unknown, though, it’s not expected they’ll leave the free agent market completely empty handed.
With money to spend, Cuban will undoubtedly do what he can to improve the Mavericks, even without Dwight Howard.
