O.J. Mayo is the Newest Dallas Maverick


(Photo Credit: Stephen Dunn/Getty Images) All I can say is, it’s about time. It seems that the Mavericks and shooting guard O.J. Mayo have agreed to a two year deal, with the second year being a player option. The Mavericks have 4$ million left in cap space this season, and I think it’s safe to say that they’ve given it ...

Mavs Add Elton Brand


The Mavericks added Elton Brand this afternoon, grabbing the 6’9″ F/C off of the amnesty wire for a mere $2.1 million dollars. Brand brings a toughness to the paint that the Mavericks sorely missed without Tyson Chandler last season, and he’ll also be able to crash the boards.

What Just Happened to the Mavericks?


(Photo Credit: Ronald Martinez/Getty Images) This has turned into a nightmare. Things have gotten so bad in Dallas that less than 24 hours ago, a Mavericks stalwart, 39-year-old Jason Kidd, turned down a 3-year, $9 million deal to go to New York. That wouldn’t be too terrible, if it wasn’t for one thing: He left for the exact same contract. ...

The JET Has Left the Runway


The JET is leaving the runway, and he’s headed for Boston. Rumors are strong this afternoon that the eight-year Dallas Maverick, and Dirk Nowitzki’s go-to wingman, has received, and agreed to, a 3-year full mid-level exception offer from the Boston Celtics. The deal would give Terry $5 million a year, and probably gives Terry much more security than any offer ...
