The Mavs were here to participate in the Celebrity Dodge Barrage, which was hosted by point guard Deron Williams. With training camp set to start in 17 days, this was sort of a bonding event for the Mavs, who lost Saturday in the championship game. “It’s good when all your teammates that are in town come out and support you,’’ Williams said. “It’s a long day, so I appreciate it.’’ Carlisle and the players drew applause for dressing out in women’s garb during the game. “He was a good team player and he wore the outfit,” Williams said. “I appreciate him coming out and supporting me.
This is the sixth time Williams has held a charity-fueled dodgeball event. He previously hosted this event three times when he played for the Utah Jazz and twice while playing for the Brooklyn Nets. “This is my first time doing it in Dallas, and this is where I hope to keep it no matter what happens with my future next year,” Williams said. “We wanted to plant the seed so the fans can see how it ism and we can just grow it year after year. “We had a good turnout and I was really good for the first one here.”
Williams said the changes in the offseason, bringing aboard Barnes and Andrew Bogut in particular, should help offset the loss of Chandler Parsons and Zaza Pachulia. “We’re definitely going to miss Chandler, but Harrison stepping in, that’s not a downgrade,” Williams said. “It’s going to be great to see how he handles being a go-to guy. He’s kind of been in the shadows (at Golden State). We’ll see what he can do now with the ball in his hands. And I’m looking forward to playing with big Bogut. I’ve been a fan of his for awhile. He’s definitely a player point guards like to play with.”
