"We're going to swing for the fences," Cuban said Saturday on 103.3 FM's "ESPN Dallas GameDay," his first interview since the Chandler trade. "I think some of these guys are opting out just to create leverage, and they'll go back. Then there's some that really want to go to different teams. We'll try to put ourselves in position to get them." ESPN.com

The legal system-abusing prankster who filed an insane lawsuit against Johnny Manziel has apparently struck again -- and this time, his target is Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. TMZ Sports has learned ... Cuban was sued in District Court in Northern Texas by someone claiming to be Lisa Lazzari ... the sister of former "Shark Tank" entrepreneur Lani Lazzari (owner of Simple Sugars body care company). In the suit, the plaintiff demands $15 MILLION and makes bogus and comically outrageous claims against Cuban. TMZ.com

According to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski: For the Rockets, there are two distinct advantages to letting Parsons into restricted free agency now. First, Houston is determined to clear the necessary salary cap space this summer to chase a third maximum contract free agent to join Dwight Howard and James Harden. Houston plans to pursue the major stars who could be available upon opting out of deals, including Miami's LeBron James and Chris Bosh, and New York's Carmelo Anthony, league sources said. Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki is expected to be a target too. "I don't pay attention to that," Cuban told SportsDay's Eddie Sefko, referencing the report. So don't fret, Mavericks fans. Nowitzki will be wearing a Mavericks uniform in 2014-15. Dallas Morning News

It turns out that Cuban was not just pulling a Trump when he said that Forbes magazine's January valuation of his Dallas Mavericks of $765 million was way too low. He told this newspaper that if someone offered him $765 for the team, he would "laugh at them." Forbes guesstimated the Mavs to be the 8th most valuable NBA team. The L.A. Clippers were 13th on the Forbes list with a value $575 million. Last Thursday, it was announced that former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer would buy the Clippers for $2 billion in the wake of the V. Stiviano/Donald Sterling unpleasantness. Dallas Morning News
