Dwight Does Dallas?

   A year ago on July 1 NBA teams began aggressively pursuing free-agent crown jewel Deron Williams. The Mavericks sent a contingency to New York, but owner Mark Cuban was in Los Angeles, of all things, filming episodes of Shark Tank.
   You know how that ended, with Dallas missing out on another big fish and, in turn, signing mediocre players to one-year deals and missing the playoffs after a .500 season.
   The target, of course, is center Dwight Howard. He's telling people in Los Angeles that won't re-sign with the Lakers, upping his suitors' salivating. The Lakers can offer a max deal of $118 million for five seasons while other teams can only go $88 million over four years. At least as we commence this Dwight dance, Dallas is in the conversation, along with the Houston Rockets, Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors.
   The Mavs have a couple advantages here, and hopefully they'll be at the right place at the right time this week.

  1. The only concern in the ability for mavs to land this deal is D12 inability to make a decision and stick with it for more than 5 mins.

  2. which means it's a good thing the Mavs are one of the last teams he'll see.

  3. or not. I dunno. Screw me, I can't support this entire comment section, people!
