Tony Romo Rumors
With Duncan appearing to still be in great shape, Green speculated the Spurs could sign him to a “Romo deal” should they make the Finals, a reference to the Dallas Mavericks signing newly retired Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo to a one-day contract. “He’s trying to stay in shape,” Green said of Duncan. “He’s still looking like we could sign him. He could come back for Game 6 in the Finals or something like that and collect a ring, if we make it. If we are up in Game 6, three (games) to two, sign him to a Romo deal.”
If Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had his way, Tony Romo would not only have dressed for Tuesday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets, he would have found his way into the game. When he approached NBA commissioner Adam Silver with the idea, Cuban said, “I told him what I was going to do and said, ‘Fine me if you don’t like it.'” Silver told Cuban the contract would not be honored, which killed the idea but did not stop the Mavericks from honoring the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback.
