Dallas Mavericks guard Dahntay Jones said he recently had a talk with Derek Fisher and discovered how much the 17-year veteran guard was missing his family. But little did Jones know that Fisher would ask the Mavs to release him from his contract, which they did on Saturday. “I knew how he felt about the situation, because we spoke about it, but I didn’t know the severity of the events,'' Jones told the Star- Telegram. "However, this situation did come out of the blue.’’ Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Dahntay Jones has a unique take on Jeremy Lin “I think he had a very good month (last year), but when anything goes down in New York City it’s a write-up about it,’’ Mavs guard Dahntay Jones said Sunday. “If it would have happened in Indiana I don’t think it would have been the same type of buzz, but he had a great string of games. “If you do that in New York – New York wants to put somebody out there and to be proud of someone. It’s the media hub, so he did it at the right place at the right time.’’ Sulia

Dahntay Jones, who was outside the locker room with teammate Paul George, a Pacers employee, his son and his mother, went and talked to Howard before the 39-year-old Howard turned around and went toward the practice court with the rest of his teammates. “Tell him I’m going to (expletive) him up,” Howard said to Dahntay Jones, Paul George and another Pacers employee.

It was unclear which player had said something to start the jawing, but Howard was soon warning Stephenson to keep his mouth shut, as Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw stepped between the players and nudged Howard away from the court. There didn’t appear to be any possibility that the altercation would evolve into violence, but Howard clearly had no use for Stephenson, nor his attitude. Yahoo! Sports
