“For sure, it’s important to have a big center,” Calderon said on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM’s “Fitzsimmons and Durrett” on Thursday. “But at the end of the day, the way coach plays and if you play the right way with a guy like Dirk (Nowitzki), it makes everything a little bit easier for everybody. If you play the right way, you may not need that big a star at the 5 position. “You just need a guy who can complement Dirk, who can play defense and rebound the ball. Maybe you’re not looking at Dwight or Andrew Bynum like there were talks around there, but you mainly need a guy who can complement and can give you good work out there without being a star to make us a good team.” ESPN.com

What makes the Mavs attractive to free agents? “You’ve got an owner who really likes to win. When you know you’ve somebody who is going to do whatever it takes to win, it makes you think about just coming to Dallas. You know he’s not going to wait 10 years to try to win. He’s going to always to try to get the better opportunity out there. That’s what convinced me, and I think that’s what people ought to be thinking of.” ESPN.com
