When the Celtics agreed to trade Rajon Rondo to Dallas, they knew they were giving up the best player in the deal. Still, among the particulars haggled over between the two franchise, was whether rookie Dwight Powell would be included in the deal. Powell, acquired by Boston this past summer from Cleveland, was coveted by Dallas. The Mavericks insisted he be part of this deal. "One guy we know is going to help us right away in Rajon Rondo and one guy Dwight Powell who we had in draft workouts last year and a guy that they didn't want to give up," said Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle.

According to the NBA source, owner Mark Cuban and coach Rick Carlisle are ready to pull off a potential deal, realizing they would likely not make it through the West without a major upgrade at point guard. The Mavericks are No. 1 in the league in scoring offense (109.8 points per game) and the presence of Chandler in the middle, a legitimate shot-blocker, could allow Rondo to take more chances on defense.

Trailing by 7 and with an opportunity to push the ball upcourt, that’s certainly not a time in which they wanted to use that timeout. Carlisle argued with Taylor, to no avail. The Mavericks were charged with a 20-second timeout. “It was miscommunication,” Carlisle said. “It was a misunderstanding that led to confusion. That’s all anyone needs to know about it. He’s a young guy, he’s working at it and it’s not all his fault.” Dallas Morning News

"He looks healthy, he’s scoring inside and he’s hitting the mid-range shots and he’s rebounding,’’ coach Rick Carlisle said Monday. "Nineteen (points) and 11 (rebounds), those are all-star numbers. "And he’s in a situation now where he doesn’t have to play super heavy minutes, so it keeps him fresh all year. He’s one of many really difficult weapons you’ve got to deal with with the Bulls.’’ Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Mavericks owner Mark Cuban joined KRLD-FM on Thursday. Here are some highlights from the interview. On the Chandler Parsons/Rick Carlisle weight issue: “It’s like telling your wife she looks fat in a dress. It was nothing. It was just coach. Chandler it wasn’t a big deal for him, but it got a lot of media attention so coach did the right thing and addressed it. I kind of laughed it off when it all happened and Chandler kind of laughed it off but it’s just the nature of the beast with media these days. It’s better to nip it in the bud than to have to answer it over and over and over again. Because you know there’s going to be people months, years, later that are going ask about stuff like that.” Dallas Morning News

What was your take on the whole Rick Carlisle and Chandler Parsons situation? Ellis: “Me personally, I would have addressed that a different way. But coach apologized for making that mistake. That’s all there is about it; admitting when you made a mistake. And Parsons didn’t take nothing of it, he just came in and practiced to do everything he could to get better and meet the requirement that coach wanted him to be at. He took on that challenge. I don’t think he took it personal, he just accepted that challenge. We put it behind us. We’re working hard. We want to get back to 2011 when they won the championship. At some point, things like that happen. We’re a family. Families have outbursts and disagreements, but at the same time, you come together, work together and put it behind you. Everyone knows it’s all love.” Dallas Morning News

The idea to shorten the game was conceived in an off-season coaches’ meeting in Chicago. Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle initially made the suggestion, according to Nets coach Lionel Hollins, the NBA jumped at the idea, and the Nets and Celtics were willing to be the test subjects. The league has no plans to try it again this season, although the D-League could be used to conduct further experiments. But even with a small sample size, the NBA hopes to get a better idea of all the potential externalities. “We’re taking a look at a lot of different things regarding our game and if we can find ways that can make it more appealing, or make it better. Then we hope that we’re able to ascertain what those things are,” said NBA president of basketball operations Rod Thorn, the former general manager of the New Jersey Nets. Wall Street Journal
