With reports coming out that the Dallas Mavericks have contacted the Minnesota Timberwolves, Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban came to the forefront to deny any talks.
When Cuban was asked about the Kevin Love trade, he responded with,
We take pride that you never read about our deals before they happen.
This has been a common response over the seasons from the Mavericks brass involving trade talks.
We all know that Cuban loves to talk, but as we’ve seen with these comments and his history, he isn’t one to let others know whats going on in-house.
Even if talks were true that the Mavericks have contacted the Wolves regarding Love, it’s hard to believe that the Mavericks would have anything to even entice the Wolves to consider an offer.
Thanks to the botch Lamar Odom trade two seasons ago, the Mavericks are left without a first round pick to offer to the Wolves or any other team in the league.
