HoopsHype Jackie Carmichael rumors
Don't look for Jackie Carmichael to be in the Dallas Mavericks' training camp next week. Not that the Mavs don't like the 6-9, 240-pound undrafted rookie free agent power forward from Illinois State.

But one thing happened to Carmichael and the Mavs en route to the negotiating table. "Unfortunately, I think financially he was looking for a good opportunity overseas,'' new Mavs general manager Gersson Rosas said Tuesday. "So that’s why we couldn’t get him here, but we tried. "We talked to his agent and unfortunately he had some good opportunities (overseas). But he's a great kid.'' Fort Worth Star-Telegram
