Mark Cuban Rumors
Dwain Price: #Mavs owner Mark Cuban on the Luka/DSJ combo: “They’re friends. People don’t realize, they’re buddies. Their girlfriends hang out together. They hang out. You’ll see them throw the ball up to each other with no problem at all. I think they’re getting along great.” @Dallas Mavericks
Regarding Wesley Matthews and the Dallas Mavericks, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski made some attention-getting comments in his most recent edition of The Woj Pod. … some of which is well-worn ground here at DallasBasketball.com. In his conversation with Bobby Marks, Woj notes that Matthews is a player that the Mavs have “been trying to trade since last year.” If you read DallasBasketball.com, you know this. Woj then went on to suggest that Matthews could potentially be a buyout candidate later this season if the Mavs aren’t able to trade his expiring contract. If you read DallasBasketball.com, you know we’d like to get to the bottom of that one. So we asked. And according to Mavs owner Mark Cuban, these rumors are merely just that — rumors.
“That stuff is ridiculous,” Cuban tells DallasBasketball.com, going on to offer support for Matthews even further, saying, “We want to win games. Everything we are doing is about winning, which means getting Wes healthy and back on the court.”
Bogues has long enjoyed the entrepreneurial show. He revels seeing creative thinkers being granted lucrative opportunities. Bogues also harbors a soft spot for resident shark and Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. A three-team trade shipped the point guard to Dallas in August 2001, just as Bogues’ mother began losing her lengthy battle with cancer. Three years still lingered on his contract, but Bogues preferred to walk from the game and care for Mom. Cuban promptly waived him, only he and the Mavericks honored the remaining seasons and $3.6 million of his deal. “That’s something that always stood out for me,” Bogues says. “The first and 15th, the payments continued to come as they used to.”
