HoopsHype Gal Mekel rumors
Mark Cuban on J.J. Barea: “If we can just get back Jet (Jason Terry) we’ll be set. J.J. became available and they got a hold of us and said, ‘Look, we think we’re going to get waived. Would you guys have an interest in him coming back?’ I talked to coach, talked to Donny, and it wasn’t an easy decision because we really like Gal. He improved dramatically and we think he’s got a real spot in this league but coach was like, ‘Look, being able to go small with J.J., with Raymond out initially, it’ll be a good compliment.’ So ‘who let the baby on the court’ is back.” Dallas Morning News

But I want to concentrate on this game. I had a great preseason and showed everybody that I can help this team. I got very good feedback from the coaching staff. "I know it's weird right now and there is a chance I will find myself in another place in two days. But as long as I am here, I'm going to help the team." Dallas Morning News
