Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is an outspoken critic of sending NBA players to international events, reasoning the NBA pays the players' salaries and receives no financial benefit. When reached by e-mail on Sunday, Cuban replied, "Nothing to add. Nothing has changed. We are just as dumb today as we were ten years ago." USA Today Sports

Cuban said the Olympics made significant revenue from NBA players. He pointed out that players in all sports, not just basketball, often declined to participate in international tournaments when they were free agents, or were about to be, out of fear that they would be injured. That, he said, was the smart financial decision. Cuban said the only parties left financially vulnerable in such situations were the league and its clubs. “We are so stupid that we are willing to commit what amounts to more than a billion dollars in salaries to help the Olympics line their pockets so we can pretend that the Olympic Games are about national pride,” Cuban said.

Chandler Parsons can get any awkward moments with his former team out of the way in the preseason opener. The Dallas Mavericks will open the preseason against the Houston Rockets at the American Airlines Center on Oct. 7. After spending his first three seasons in Houston, Parsons signed a three-year, $46 million deal with the Mavs in restricted free agency. ESPN.com

The Mavs’ preseason schedule: Oct. 7: vs. Houston Rockets; Oct. 10: vs. Oklahoma City Thunder; Oct. 12: vs. Indiana Pacers; Oct. 17: at Cleveland Cavaliers; Oct. 18: at Indiana Pacers; Oct. 20: vs. Memphis Grizzlies; Oct. 23: at New Orleans Pelicans; Oct. 24: at Orlando Magic. ESPN.com

Thanks to TEAM USA for bringing them together in Las Vegas for training camp, Parsons said he and Harden found time in between time to chat and patch things up. “We’ve been in the casinos together and everything,” Parsons said to CSNNW.com. “We talked about it and it’s in the past. We’ve been hanging out, talking. We played on the same team a few times here, which was cool to get back out there with him. There are no hard feelings.” CSNNW.com

“There was never really any back and forth,” Harden told CSNNW.com. “I never said anything about Chandler. Chandler is in Dallas right now. I was just talking about my teammates. No matter what, if the Rockets are playing good, Dwight and James get the praise. If we’re doing bad, Dwight and James gets the bulk of criticism. The media, I guess, took another story and ran with it. Chandler and me are cool. We’re good.” CSNNW.com
