Dwain Price: Ex-#Mavs G Rolando Blackman and ex-Mavs coach Quinn Buckner will be inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame this fall. The Hall of Fame ceremony for Rolando Blackman (Kansas State) and Quinn Buckner (Indiana) will be held Nov. 20 in Kansas City. Twitter @DwainPrice

The Mavericks wanted to sign 36-year-old big man Jermaine O’Neal to address their desire for a rebounder and defensive presence to come off their bench. So of course they have some interest in a freakishly athletic 26-year-old center who is available only two seasons removed from being a legitimate Defensive Player of the Year candidate. But the Mavs’ interest in Larry Sanders, based on conversations with team sources, is best described as cautious and complicated. ESPN.com

The Mavs can only offer the veteran’s minimum, so theoretically they would be taking a minimal risk if Sanders agreed to come to Dallas. However, the Mavs’ front office is sensitive to the potential of creating chemistry problems by adding a player who isn’t all in, the Lamar Odom disaster still fresh in their minds. Sanders, whose agent Happy Walters has a strong relationship with the Dallas front office and also represents Stoudemire and other key Mavs, would have to make a convincing case that he’d be fully committed to attempting to help make a playoff run in the Western Conference.
