The Mavericks had already committed to a starting lineup with Curry next to Dennis Smith Jr., one that featured Dirk Nowitzki at center with Harrison Barnes and Wesley Matthews filling out the backcourt, and one that notably did not include Nerlens Noel. Even with Curry’s injury, after reading between the lines on what Rick Carlisle has said in practice the past two days, I’m pretty certain Noel isn’t going to be bumped up into the starting five. In fact, I’m almost positive of it.
Storyline: Carlisle-Noel Dynamic
Peter Vecsey: “Harrison’s the kind of guy who will remember that forever,” said someone who knows him extremely well. “He still holds a grudge against the teams that didn’t draft him.” Especially the Charlotte Hornets! Michael Jordan’s team opted for Kentucky’s Michael Kidd-Gilchrist at No. 2 over Barnes, who played in state at the University of North Carolina.
Peter Vecsey: “Harrison took that very personal,” the same source said. “Guaranteed, should he ever leave the Mavericks, he’ll never sign with New Orleans (Anthony Davis), Washington (Bradley Beal), Cleveland (Dion Waiters), Sacramento (Thomas Robinson) and Portland (Damian Lillard). Barnes will not forget feeling slighted by the above six teams. And he did not forget Draymond’s affront when he sent out invitations for his July 29, 2017, wedding to Brittany Johnson.
