Terry said in a radio interview in Dallas that he would love to play for the Mavericks, where he was a former NBA Sixth Man of the Year and part of the 2011 NBA Champions. “I won’t rule out returning back to Dallas,” Terry said. “It’s my home and my heart,” Terry said. “I bleed blue. I’m a Maverick.” Sacramento Bee

The Dallas Mavericks have come to terms with veteran 3-point shooter Rashard Lewis on a one-year deal.

“That was the only thing that bothered me, them saying they needed a third piece to win a championship when I viewed myself as that and did everything for the organization to be that guy. That’s why I was so excited about Dallas because talking to Mark (Cuban) and Rick (Carlisle), that’s how they view me. I hope there’s no hard feelings in Houston. I had to make the best decision for my career.” Houston Chronicle

Marc Stein: ESPN sources say Dirk Nowitzki has taken bigger pay cut than previously thought. Deal finalized today at three years, $25 mil for Mavs lifer. Anticipated deal for Dirk was a structure like Tim Duncan's deal w/Spurs, but he took $5 mil less to help facilitate Chandler Parsons move Twitter @ESPNSteinLine

On if there is still chance Shawn Marion could re-sign with Dallas: Nelson: “Well ‘Trix is just like we’ve talked about with JET and Dirk — we don’t sip from the cup without Shawn Marion so absolutely you never close the door. Now, his value in the marketplace is much higher than what we have right now, and so I would categorize that as a long long long long long shot. But kind of like Vince, there’s opportunities and the really good agents are going to get their guy their values. And Shawn Marion’s got one of the best in the business, if not thee best, so I expect he’s going to get a lot more money out there than the Mavericks can afford to offer right now.” Dallas Morning News

On Mo Williams potentially coming to the Mavericks: Nelson: “Yeah we’ve been trying to figure out a way to get Mo in a Maverick uniform for years now. He’s a Dallas guy, from Memphis but live in Dallas with his family, so we’re hopeful that we can work something out but again our hands are tied right now because of the Parsons thing of what we can do financially. All these guys, whether it’s Mo, whether it’s ‘Trix, in all reality they’re going to have to take a payout to come here. It’s just how much of a pay cut are guys willing to look at and we’re understanding and respectful of the market place and there’s other places that may have more playing time and more financial flexibility that we do, but we would love for both of those guys to continue to consider us.” Dallas Morning News
