Carter appreciates that the Mavs didn’t pass on him at a time when his stock wasn’t high after disappointing stints in Orlando and Phoenix. “[Mark] Cuban believed in me in the beginning when I guess a lot of people felt like I was just done or couldn’t play anymore,” Carter said. “I just got better and better. A lot of guys think when you get to that age, how can you get better? But I think I got better. I fit with this team. I think it worked and coach made it work. I was just glad to be a part of it.” ESPN.com

Durant even bounced around a little during warmups, celebrated with his teammates after nice plays and walked without a limp during timeouts. At halftime, he fired up some flat-footed practice shots. At one point, Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph peered down the benches toward Durant, pointed downward and mouthed: “Your foot good?” Durant gave him an approving nod. Oklahoman

History says Tayshaun Prince has started 838 regular season games since the beginning of the 2003-04 season. That’s the second-most in the NBA behind Cleveland’s LeBron James. The Grizzlies own a .640 winning percentage in 113 regular season games since Prince arrived to Memphis in a trade involving Rudy Gay. Prince, 34, doesn’t sound like someone who lives in the past, no matter how flattering. However, the 6-9 veteran forward clearly expects his future in the league to be just as relevant. Griz brass failed in several attempts to trade Prince this summer. But he remains part of the Grizzlies’ equation and ardent about continuing a significant role with an apparent Western Conference contender. Memphis Commercial Appeal

"It created the most amount of problems for them," Cuban said. "The trade kicker not only made [the contract] more expensive, but the opt out [after Year 2] could create a Kevin Love-type situation for any teams interested in trading for him, where you don't know if he's gonna opt in or opt out." The impact this three-year pact and its various complications had on Parsons' fate has some league observers wondering now if shorter contract offers from big-market teams to future restricted free agents, such as the San Antonio Spurs' Kawhi Leonard and Minnesota Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio if they make it to the open market next July, will become more commonplace. "The contract structure was extremely creative," Cavs general manager David Griffin said. "I think it will be a significant moment in the way restricted free agency discussions are handled in the future." Said Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace: "The concept of a short-term offer sheet is intriguing and could be the wave of the future. With the reduction in the decision time to match reduced to three days, the team who writes an offer sheet is only out of action for a short period of time. [So] there is no downside. If the sheet is not matched, you have your player, and if it is matched, then the player will be back on the market soon, which increases the pool of players in free agency two or three years down the road."
