What impact did Mark Cuban's presence have on your signing the offer sheet? Chandler Parsons: I've developed a relationship with him throughout the years. I truly think he's the best owner in sports. It's comforting playing for a team and an owner that you know they're never gonna let you be bad; they're always going to look for ways to improve the team. I just have a special relationship with him. I trust him. The way he pitched me in that system with coach Carlisle and the core guys that they have was too good to turn down. The whole night I signed; it was kind of random. His flight (Cuban's) was getting in late. We had finished dinner downtown. So me and my friends and my parents just walked to this lounge in downtown Orlando. He texted me wanting to know where it was. I told him. And he just showed up there with a contract. It's gotta be the first time a player has ever signed in a club. Dallas Morning News

Are you aware that Dallas is a pretty good town to live in if you're 25 years old, making $15 million a year? Chandler Parsons: And single. I look forward to that; I look forward to being there. I went there a couple of days last week to do my physical. I was very impressed to say the least. Dallas Morning News

The Dallas Mavericks are closing in on signing former Orlando Magic point guard Jameer Nelson, according to sources briefed on the talks. Sources told ESPN.com that Nelson and the Mavericks, barring an unforeseen snag, are on track to formalize a contract Thursday, when Nelson visits Dallas. ESPN.com reported Tuesday that the Mavericks had arranged to fly Nelson into town for a face-to-face visit Thursday in the hopes of finalizing a deal via use of their $2.7 million room exception.

Tim MacMahon: I'm told Mavs plan is to rotate 3 vet PGs and have them spell Monta Ellis at SG, too. Depth will allow Dallas to play up tempo all the time. Twitter @espn_macmahon

Dallas Mavericks point guard Raymond Felton pleaded guilty Wednesday in a New York gun case, taking a plea deal that involved admitting a felony but spares him jail. Felton pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm. He admitted he knowingly had a large-capacity ammunition magazine and a pistol without a license. ESPN.com

"Are those charges true?'' Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Larry Stephen asked. "Yes, sir,'' Felton said, later adding in a soft voice, "I apologize.'' He was immediately sentenced to 500 hours of community service and ordered to pay a $5,000 fine. Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Jonathan Rebold said Felton will be allowed to do the service outside New York. If he complies, the case will be closed without jail time or probation. ESPN.com

The Dallas Mavericks will host free agent Jameer Nelson on a recruiting visit Thursday, as part of ongoing negotiations with the former Orlando Magic point guard, according to sources close to the situation. Sources told ESPN.com that the Mavericks are bringing Nelson to town in hopes of finally closing a deal with him, as Dallas continues to pursue a veteran point guard to help fill the void created by Jose Calderon's exit in June. ESPN.com

There has been mutual interest between the Mavs and guard Mo Williams throughout the free-agency period. However, Williams has offers for more than the $2.7 million salary the Mavs can offer, sources said. A source also told ESPNDallas.com recently that Williams wasn’t the Mavs’ top target for their $2.7 million exception, declining to elaborate on the player who is a higher priority. (Jameer Nelson?)
