The Washington Wizards are in talks with the Dallas Mavericks about a potential sign-and-trade deal that would land veteran forward/center DeJuan Blair with the Wizards, according to sources close to the process. Sources told ESPN.com that the Wizards have expressed strong interest in the free agent and are trying to come to terms with Blair on a new contract before the Mavericks have to renounce their rights to Blair to make salary-cap space for the new players they're signing.

The Dallas Mavericks have arranged for a sign-and-trade to send undersized big man DeJuan Blair to Washington. The Mavericks aren’t expecting anything in return. They are facilitating the deal while they are under the salary cap so that Blair can receive a somewhat larger salary. Dallas Morning News

One source expressed confidence Sunday night that "things could move fast" on a deal that calls for Dallas to sign-and-trade Blair to Washington this week as opposed to just renouncing him. Working on a one-year minimum deal last season, Blair played with an intensity and tenacity that the Mavs sorely needed in their frontcourt. Due to Samuel Dalembert's inconsistencies and Brandan Wright's matchup-based play, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle often went to Blair, 25, as the primary center off the bench. ESPN.com

However, Beverley also said next season when the Rockets play the Mavericks, he will treat Parsons like every other opponent. Beverley said "he probably won't say a word to him in the game." Parsons laughed and said he understood completely. "That's how it is," Parsons said. "When that ball goes up the friendships go out the door. That's the name of game. That happens all across the NBA. I have multiple friends on different teams. "It will be a weird feeling playing Houston next year." FOX 26 Sports

Mark Berman: Pat Beverley: "I spoke to (Chandler) that day he signed the offer sheet with Dallas. He was hyped. I spoke to him at 5:30 this morning (in Taiwan) and he told me they are not going to match. Of course it's tough. I'm human. Chandler is like a brother to me. Me and Chandler were like the glue that kept it together. It's time 4me to step up 2the plate, provide more offensively and defensively to help our team. I'm confident. I think Dwight's confident. I think James is confident that we'll get some key pieces and try to make a run at this" Twitter @MarkBermanFox26
