However, owner Mark Cuban is preaching caution, emphasizing that the Mavs recruited Matthews with long-term goals in mind. “We’re not putting a timetable on it,” Cuban said Friday on 1310 The Ticket. “Like I told Wes, if he opens up with camp, great. If he starts the season, great. If he misses 30 games, great. I don’t care because we didn’t sign him for this year. “We signed him because having Chandler [Parsons], having DeAndre [Jordan] and having Wes Matthews, that’s a great young core. And so the goal isn’t to try to rush them: ‘Oh my goodness, we might miss something.’ It’s really to get them all healthy, which we know we can, and have them playing together and be something special for a lot of years as opposed to being worrying about the first 30 games of this season.”

Matthews was seriously considering the Sacramento Kings, who met with him on Thursday and are known to have offered a four-year deal worth approximately $65 million. Because the Mavericks are still pursuing free agent big men like LaMarcus Aldridge and DeAndre Jordan, Matthews’ salary has not yet been finalized. Clearly, however, he felt good enough about the Dallas situation to leave some staggering money on the table in Sacramento.

Free agent guard Wes Matthews spurned a large offer from the Sacramento Kings late Thursday night to accept a four-year offer from the Dallas Mavericks, according to a league source. The move is a major deal for a player coming off a torn Achilles’ injury that ended his season with the Trail Blazers before the start of last season’s playoffs. The agreement gives the Mavericks a boost as they hope to sign free agent center DeAndre Jordan away from the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Sacramento Kings have entered the race for Portland Trail Blazers free-agent swingman Wesley Matthews, according to league sources, and have agreed to a trade with the Philadelphia 76ers in an effort to clear salary-cap space. The Kings, sources say, are now pursuing at least three top free agents: Monta Ellis, Rajon Rondo and Matthews, the latter of whom they have secured a face-to-face sitdown with on Thursday.
