You’re in a contract year, and the Warriors can extend a qualifying offer this summer. With the recent events, are you concerned about this summer? Jordan Bell: No, I’m not really that concerned. We have a championship to win. That’s where my focus is now. I haven’t had to deal with contract stuff yet, so I’m going to try to enjoy that as much as possible until that time comes. I don’t think this off-the-court incident should affect on the court, as far as my play. I think I’ve been figuring things out. People have been helping me get through this hump.

That’s terrific for Bell, who wildly outperformed his minuscule $815,000 salary in his rookie season and will only make $1.3 million next season as he steps into an even bigger role. If he performs, Bell will put himself in position for a payday next summer, at 24, instead of a third straight season making below his value. “It can be good or bad,” Bell told The Athletic this week. “It’s kind of like betting on yourself. Some people, if you have a longer contract right away, four years (like all first-rounders), you have a longer time to develop. Two-year contract, you gotta perform both years if you want your money in that free-agency year. I don’t mind betting on myself, though. I think it was a good thing for me, especially at my age.”

Mark Cuban is working on a program that would offer Mavericks fans a $50 credit each month of the season toward DirecTV Stream to reduce the cost of the only streaming platform that offers Bally Sports Southwest, he told The Dallas Morning News. The Mavericks’ owner is still working on details, but he said the franchise would first offer season-ticket holders the opportunity and then expand sign-ups to the first 10,000 fans total.
