The Mavs would welcome back Richard Jefferson. All he has to do is agree to play for the veteran’s minimum again. The professionalism of Jefferson, a 14-year veteran far removed from his days as an offensive focal point, was appreciated during a season in which his minutes fluctuated. The Mavs also value Jefferson’s perimeter shooting ability. And coach Rick Carlisle repeatedly praised Jefferson for playing with as much “force” as any player on the roster.

You ever see a fashion item that you just NEEDED TO HAVE??? NBA star Richard Jefferson did — a Vans cheetah-print snapback baseball hat … and he paid $700 to buy it off some random dude’s head!!! RJ was at Hi Fi Kitchen & Cocktails in Scottsdale, AZ Saturday night — when a dude named Andrew walked in with the cheetah cap. Andrew tells TMZ Sports … the Dallas Mavs star beelined it over his way with cash in hand … and started making offers for the dome piece. Andrew declined at first … but ultimately gave in for a handful of $100 bills — 7 in total. So, why was Jefferson so obsessed with the hat? Andrew says RJ actually purchased the lid for teammate Chandler Parsons … who was also eyeing the cap that night. The best part of the story — Andrew says he originally bought the hat for $25.
It’s like a real-life version of “The Wire” … NBA star Richard Jefferson says he was taken for $2 MILLION … and played a key role in a covert FBI operation to catch the (alleged) bad guy and recover his cash. It’s all part of new legal docs obtained by TMZ Sports … in which the 34-year-old Dallas Mavericks forward claims his former business manager Ted Kritza drew $2 million from Richard’s bank credit line without permission.
Yes, that really was 34-year-old Richard Jefferson rising from the dotted line and throwing down a vicious tomahawk slam over 21-year old Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. The dunk was so stunning and so sweet that players on the Charlotte Hornets’ bench were falling over each other in shocked awe. “It was sick!” said Dirk Nowitzki, whose All-Star alley-oop is no longer the most surprising dunk of the Dallas Mavericks season, although players swear the 14-year veteran Jefferson has dunked like that in practice.
