Judging from Cuban’s responses to The News, he’s clearly taken note of the practice facility boom and has brainstormed possibilities for the Mavericks — though he stressed that “what we have now works, so there’s no rush. “It’s too early right now, I think, to design a facility that’s going to be optimal for medical technology that’s coming down the road,” Cuban added.

Mark Cuban: As far as the Lakers go, I think there are going to be a lot of teams that are saying, “I’ve got a ton of cap room,” and signing three big free agents to come play for them. Los Angeles has always been considered a destination city, so maybe they feel that’s a valid strategy. You know me, Fred. Personally, I just hope they suck forever. KFWB - The Beast 980

Mark Cuban, billionaire entrepreneur and the owner of the Dallas Mavericks, joined The Fred Roggin Show to talk about Roger Goodell’s suspension of Adrian Peterson, looking the other way on off-the-court problems, competitive balance in the NBA, and more.

Barea said he left Minnesota with no regrets, and that he understood what the Wolves were trying to do. The Wolves and Barea agreed to a buyout that paid him a portion of the $4.5 million they owed him. Barea turned around and signed a deal with Dallas that paid him the veterans minimum. “I think we finished on good terms,” he said. “We communicated pretty good. They wanted to go another direction. We talked about it and came up with the decision and went from there.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Mark Cuban On turning around the Mavericks: “When I took over the team it was January of 2000. We were 9-23 and the general manager and coach at the time, Don Nelson — who came from the Knicks actually —said, ‘We can lose and try to get a good draft pick and da da da da da.’ As it turns out it was one of the worst drafts ever. I’m like, ‘No. At some point this team has to learn how to win.’ So we focused on winning and as it turned out, we had a nucleus of a great team. People just didn’t expect us to win, so the players didn’t expect us to win. So I walked in and said, ‘I expect you guys to win. We’re not going to mess around anymore. If you don’t lay it out, if you don’t put it all on the line, I’m going to trade your ass. And guess what? This is going to be a premier destination in the NBA. You can laugh because that’s what everybody did, but I’m going to kick everybody’s ass. They just don’t know it yet.’ ” Dallas Morning News

“It’s just a little bit slow,” Carlisle said. “There has not been a setback. We’re not going to mess with it. The rules state that he’s got to be healthy to begin it. And we’re not going to mess with league rules.” Not that the Mavericks aren’t eager to get Felton back, he said. “We need him,” Carlisle said. “We need every available healthy guy on our roster that we can get. Don’t think it doesn’t cross your mind when you see Jameer Nelson go down the other night and limp off the floor. But Mother Nature is difficult sometimes. He’s working hard at it. We’ll just keep pointing in that direction and hopefully it will be soon.” Dallas Morning News
