The Dallas Mavericks lost out on the Dwight Howard sweepstakes, but life goes on and the front office has a team to assemble. They started with one of the bigger holes on their roster since Jason Kidd left, point guard. Former Toronto Raptors point guard Jose Calderon appears to be their answer to that problem.
They gave Calderon a 4 year deal worth $29 million.
“We gave it a shot and it didn’t work out,” Cuban wrote about Howard in an email. “It was truly an experience. So it’s on to Plan B.”
The long term deal suggests that Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks are over their cap saving ways hoping they land a huge free agent. They’ve whiffed the past two years on hometown product Deron Williams and now Dwight Howard.
Calderon is 31 years old, and has career averages of 10.1 points and 7.2 assists over 28.6 minutes a game.
Agent Mark Bartelstein says point guard Jose Calderon has a four-year deal with the Dallas Mavericks.
