HoopsHype Dwight Powell rumors

December 20, 2014 Updates

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban watched his team start 19-7, lead the league in scoring and field goal percentage and register several routs. And he knew the Mavericks simply weren’t good enough to contend at the top of the Western Conference. “We needed to be better defensively,” Cuban said, following Friday evening’s news conference with new additions Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell.

“I mean, teams were walking in and shooting better at the 3 than they were in the gym by themselves. So that had to change and stop. “We didn’t have a lot of length at the point guard position, either. We needed to get a lot taller or a lot longer. Rajon’s the best of both. He’s not taller, but he’s so long that he’s as good as 6-4 or 6-5, so he can guard much bigger.” Boston Herald
