Speculated this earlier, and source confirms: Josh Smith would fill Brandan Wright's old role (and get some PF minutes) if he signs w/ Mavs.
Mavs vs Hawks tonight, 730 on FSSW. Hawks were 7-6 on Thanksgiving, since won 12 of 13. Only loss from Tobias Harris at buzzer in Orlando
Rockets can offer Josh Smith more $ and bigger role than Mavs. Dwight Howard/Rajon Rondo cancel out buddy angle. Don't like Dallas' odds.
Can someone make a steel-cage illustration we can tweet out every time a free agent hits the market that the Rockets and Mavs scrap over?
If he signs with the Mavs, I could see Josh Smith getting a lot of minutes at 5. Plug him into the Brandan Wright role.
Also hearing that the Los Angeles Clippers will make a run at Josh Smith, but Clips -- like Mavs -- have only minimum dollars to offer
ESPN sources say both Kings and Mavericks have interest in signing Josh Smith as a free agent if (when) he clears waivers Wednesday
The Mavs have shown zero interest in Josh Smith in the past. I don't know if they would now. He is tight with Rajon Rondo.
RE: Josh Smith/Mavs speculation -- All they have to offer is the minimum. Would he accept that and a backup role?
Josh Smith’s closest friend in the NBA is new Mavs guard Rajon Rondo. Dallas has some roster spots to fill & needs front court bench help.
What a strong random NBA Monday: Blazers-Rockets, Hawks-Mavs, Spurs-Clips, Drakes-Bulls.
Why I notice these things & care to look them up I don't know: The Mavs have every uniform # 1 to 9 in use right now, a 1st in team history
In a bit of an upset (to me, at least), Jameer Nelson is the first of the new Mavericks to play.
