Reminds me of a shot Danny Green had here in Dallas that would've won a game but replay showed he still had fingertips on the ball @ buzzer

Sounds like Kawhi Leonard will be out a few more days, including game tomorrow night here in Dallas w/ torn ligament in his right hand

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle and Cuban both repeatedly said that the @Dallas Mavericks were interested in Dwight Powell during the draft process. Got him in December.

Dwain Price

BOS wasn't going to do this deal unless Brandan Wright was included, and the #Mavs weren't going to do it unless Dwight Powell was included.

Jeff Caplan

Mavs on Saturday likely to get a Spurs team without Kawhi, Tony and maybe Timmy (2nd night of back-to-back).

Earl K. Sneed

Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell are @Dallas Mavericks. @ American Airlines Center instagram.com/p/wztYoxNknt/

Dwain Price

Carlisle will work with Rondo and Powell tonight and again during tomorrow's shootaround.

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo: "I plan on getting a great reception tomorrow." Cuban: "You will."

Mark Followill

Carlisle & Rondo both indicate that the plan is for him to be up to speed on the system & start tomorrow vs the Spurs (730, TXA21)

Dwain Price

Rick Carlisle said Rondo will be in the starting lineup tomorrow against the #Spurs -- assuming the traded Mavs pass their physicals.

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle will spend extra time with Rondo and Powell tonight and tomorrow to get them ready for tomorrow vs. the Spurs.

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle: "On the assumption that all the physicals are cleared, Rajon will be in the starting lineup tomorrow night."

Rondo: "I love to compete, I love to win. We joked about me being the second leading rebounder coming in."

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo: "I'm excited to play with Dirk. He's still got a lot left in the tank."

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo says J-Kidd is a good friend, and he sees a lot of similarities in their games.

Dwain Price

"It was no hard feelings. I could have been traded anywhere and they traded me to a great organization. " -- Rondo

Earl K. Sneed

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo: "I'm dying to get a ring again. I want another parade."

Earl K. Sneed

Dwain Price

"We're going to do everything possible to keep him here. He's the youngest guy on the team." -- Mark Cuban

Earl K. Sneed

Cuban: "We wouldn't have given up picks if it wasn't long-term. ... We're going to do everything possible to keep him here forever."

Earl K. Sneed

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo says he feels like he has gotten better since his knee injury. Says he takes the weight room a lot more seriously now.

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo: "I feel like we can win any game. ... Being able to play with future Hall of Famers, a great coach ... I'm fired up and ready to go."

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo says he looks forward to defending the West PGs. "I have to bring it every night."

Dwain Price

"I see him as a guy who hasn't reached his ceiling. " -- Rick Carlisle on Rondo

It was fun passing the time waiting on the presser discussing with @townbrad the hoops exploits of the Van Breda Kolffs & Van Arsdales

Earl K. Sneed

Carlisle: "This is a big day in our franchise's history. It's a blockbuster trade."

Jeff Caplan

Alexey Shved must be thanking his lucky stars being released from Siberia, er, Philadelphia.

Earl K. Sneed

Presser is underway...

Kathryn Dunn

So excited for some holiday fun with my teammates!

Earl K. Sneed

"Do, do, do, do..." RT @karenberlincoop: Hey @Earl K. Sneed could y'all hum some Jeopardy music for those of us watching the live feed???

Dwain Price

That's too bad about the #Pelicans waiving Gal Mekel. He'll get pick up, because he played well this yr. in training camp for the #Mavs.

Dwain Price

Dwight Powell will wear No. 8 for the #Mavs and Rajon Rondo will wear No. 9.

Earl K. Sneed

Rajon Rondo will wear No. 9. Dwight Powell will wear No. 8.

Mark Followill

Being told it's on NBATV as well

Mark Followill

I assume all local sports radio outlets will carry it as well. Still waiting. No word on start time

Mark Followill

For those asking mavs.com has the Rondo presser

Dwain Price

Dallas traffic has held up the start of the Rajon Rondo/Dwight Powell press conference, which was supposed to start at 4:45.

Dwain Price

#Mavs owner Mark Cuban picked up Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell on his private jet in Boston and brought them to Dallas today.

Earl K. Sneed

Not a call. Just @Ali_Dee. RT @NicoDallas: Funny how this things work, the live Rondo Presser lets you hear a phone call from @Earl K. Sneed

Mark Followill

Bit of a delay, physicals, Fri afternoon traffic etc... So Rondo press conference looking more like 5pm

Earl K. Sneed

Rondo/Powell press conference about to get underway. Quotes forthcoming...

It's safe to say that Rajon Rondo will be one of the most highly sought-after free agents in the NBA next summer.

Dwain Price

Dirk on Rondo: "We got to keep moving and get used to probably some crazy passes that we haven’t seen around here in awhile."

Dwain Price

"He’s a one-man fast break. He gets the ball out in transition, always has his head up, can make any pass in the game." -- Tyson on Rondo

Dwain Price

#Mavs C Tyson Chandler: "I think San Antonio’s the team to beat. They’re the champions. Until they’re dethroned, they’re the champions."

Dwain Price

"He’s going to have a bunch of weapons around him. And up top, he’ll be great for us defensively.'' -- #Mavs C Tyson Chandler on Rajon Rondo

Dwain Price

Dwain Price

Dirk on Rondo: "Anytime you have a chance to grab a top point guard in this league, you got to go for it.''

“Anytime you have a chance to grab a top point guard in this league, you got to go for it.'' -- Dirk on Rondo

Dwain Price

Rick Carlisle said there's a good chance Rajon Rondo will play Saturday against the #Spurs.

Dwain Price

It seemed like there was a different vibe at #Mavs practice today when they let the media in. That's what a player like Rajon Rono can do.

Charlie Villanueva

Welcome @Rajon Rondo to @Dallas Mavericks! Rajon is one the best in our @NBA league, savvy skills. More on my thoughts here: charlievillanueva.sportsblog.com/posts/1452985/…

Dwain Price

Asked if the #Mavs are now the team to beat out West, Dirk Nowitzki said no. And that they want to continue flying under the radar.

Kathryn Dunn

#RT to help send @Tyson Chandler to the All Star Game!

Earl K. Sneed

It's always an honor to be referred to as @newyscruggs' favorite Nupe. #achievement

Dwain Price

Jermaine O'Neal is one of the players the #Mavs are considering signing to back up Tyson Chandler.

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk on Rondo: "He's one of the smartest players there is on the court. He's a pass-first guy, so we should all enjoy playing with him."

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk: "Anytime you have a chance to grab a top PG in this league, you've got to go for it. I think [Rondo] is a competitor. He's a warrior."

Earl K. Sneed

Dirk on Rondo: "We're going to tell him to do what he does, and that's make guys better. ... Get his teammates involved. Find me a lot."

Earl K. Sneed

Tyson Chandler on the trade: "I'm glad that this happened now. ... At the end of the year, it'll be like [Rondo] has been here for years."

Mark Followill

Carlisle post practice on possibly of Rondo playing tomorrow "We think he will but we're not sure"

Earl K. Sneed

Rick Carlisle says it's a "good chance" Rondo plays Saturday vs. the Spurs.

Jeff Caplan

Man, #Pelicans waive Gal Mekel? During Hanukkah? Gutless.

Dwain Price

The #Mavs have a roster spot available. And they need to find a veteran backup for Tyson Chandler.

Mark Followill

There will be a press conference with Mavs brass & Rajon Rondo at 4:45 this afternoon. Surely to be carried by multiple media outlets

Dwain Price

The #Mavs have a press conference today at 4:45 p.m. for Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell at American Airlines Center.

Earl K. Sneed

Just sent out by the @Dallas Mavericks: Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell have a press conference scheduled at 4:45 p.m. CT this afternoon.

Earl K. Sneed

For those asking, Rajon Rondo is expected to arrive in Dallas this afternoon and take his physical before meeting with the media.

Dwain Price

As expected, Rajon Rondo is not at #Mavs practice this morning. The trade happened too late last night for that to occur.

Earl K. Sneed

It's ugly sweater day at the #Mavs office and @keishonthecheek is in the Christmas spirit. @ Dallas… instagram.com/p/wy_5_itknU/

Earl K. Sneed

The Jan. 2 matchup between the @Dallas Mavericks & Celtics will now be televised by @NBATV at 6:30 p.m. CT.

Jeff Caplan

For @FOXSports No. 6 TCU not disheartened by playoff process but emboldened to keep building a national brand ... foxsports.com/southwest/stor…

Earl K. Sneed

It's scary to think how many trailer threes Dirk will get with Rondo leading the break and Monta and Parsons running on the wings. Scary.

Mark Followill

Thank goodness TOR & CHI lost on final night last season, allowed Mavs to convey pick from Odom trade & be in position for move like this
